Family of James G. Morris

James G. Morris resided in Harwich, MA  between 1893 and 1910. Born Guilherme José Meirelles, the son of Manuel José Meirelles and Antonia Lopes, he married Leopoldina de Pina ca 1874 in Brava. He likely came to the US after the birth of his son Manuel, in 1883. His wife and young children reunited with him in the US between 1883 and 1890 and they first lived in Provincetown. There were at least seven children in all, including: Antonio, Manuel, Theophilus, William, James, and Olivia. Any information or photos of this family would be much appreciated
