Am researching Emanuel Antonio PEREIRA-(1872-1942) of St. John's.

Was a Cricket Umpire + Freemason (LodgeChaplain) Worked for Dept. Health (Sanitation?)- after retirement worked at Bryson's Dept. Store in Hardware Dept.

Father of: (possibly) Clarice Winter
Llewellyn Pereira
Francis Pereira
Muriel Pereira
Kenneth Pereira
Cecil Thomas Pereira
Seems there exists a STRONG connection to Gomes, Vieira, Gouveia + De Quintal Families especially. (Have link to McCarthy (et al) site-still wondering how we actually fit.)

Have been trying to locate a copy of a PHOTO of Emanuel with 3 other Cricket Umpires: Messrs. Evanson, Peters + Spencer which is KNOWN to have existed. Also a photo of the Freemasons marching in a St. John's parade- Emanuel carrying the Bible.
Any help, info, advice greatly appreciated.
