The Last Post

This is the end of the Maui Girl Stories. Donna Austin and myself hope that you've enjoyed all that you read these last few months.

Donna has prepared some notes about these stories:

  1. When Rose’s grand daughter (Maui Girl) spoke to her grandmother, she said, “Thank god you married Antone. (Tony) If you hadn’t, I wouldn’t be here.”
  2. In 1924 on the U.S.S. Taft, Antone (Tony) & Rose and family came to California.
  3. Antone (Tony) married Rose and she had 23 pregnancies, 12 live births and 6 living children. Antone and Rose are both buried in Santa Clara Mission Cemetary in California.
  4. In 1998 Rose’s grand daughter (Maui Girl) went to Maui and talked to Lorraine who was Adelina and Jôao’s grand daughter. She asked her why the Portuguese had so many secrets?
