Raquel (Rachel) De Castillo born 1891
Raquel De Castillo was my great aunt through marriage. She married my grandmother Arthémise Dumais Levesque's brother Napoleon Dumais. What I have been finding is that Napoleon used the surname Dumas rather than Dumais or the census enumerator misspelled the name.
This morning I found them in a 1920 Federal Census living in Lawrence, Massachusetts. It tells me that they married in Cuba, were in Lawrence for the birth of their first child, returned to Cuba where three more children were born and were back in Lawrence for the birth of their last two children.
My mother often spoke of "ma tante Rachel" (aunt Rachel) and she loved her dearly. No one seems to know what became of them and my mother's first cousins (in their high 80s and 90s) believe they returned to Cuba at some point. It was thanks to them that just a few years ago I learned that Raquel was married to my Napoleon. Until then, I had no idea how my family was related to her.
If anyone has information on this family, I would love to hear from you.
