CRASTO - Venezuela, Suriname, New York

Postby Tom McGlinchey » Wed Sep 05, 2012 3:30 am

I have been able to determine that the adoptive father for Abraham Crasto, David Gabay Crasto, was born ABT 1770 in Maracaibo, Zulia State, Venezuela. His marriage to Rachel Lopes Telles (b. 1771, Jamaica) was in 1791, in Surinam.

The family was later found to be active in the Jewish community in Surinam. At some point David came to New York, where a genealogy source suggests he may have worked as an ambassador from Venezuela. I would guess, instead, he was involved in trade.

Abraham's birth family are among the relations in the Lopes Telles family. It appears that Rachel is Abraham's aunt.

David was an appreciated builder and architect, later working in real estate development in the growing City of New York (notable Harlem).

Any help is appreciated in locating family in Venezuela.
