More information. Joseph LOPEZ was a seaman & owned some ships or boats. It seems there was some kind of problem in Mexico & he had to flee for his life. He entered the U.S.A. in 1875 & by the 1900 census he was naturalized. Any info on anything about this will be appreciated.

The family story is that the parents of Joseph Edward LOPEZ were born somewhere in Castille, although I have heard nothing about where in Castille or their names or whether there were any siblings. I have no idea why he came to America. My understanding is that he married in 1875 and became a citizen in 1895, but I do not have copies of the marriage certificate or naturalization papers.

In the census, Joseph Edward LOPEZ lists his place of birth as Mexico, His father's place of birth as Spain, & his mother's place of birth as Mexico. I have a copy of the citizen paper, dated 15th July 1895, stating "......late of Campeche Mexico in the Republic of Mexico at present of Tampa......". I also have a copy, from the microfilm of the Tampa Tribune, of the write up when he died stating that he was a native of Campeche, Mexico. I also have information on his wife's family going back a few generations. I would like to share information. Do you live in the Tampa area? Looking forward to hearing from you again. Barb

I live in Brandon and work by the airport. I would love to share info, but that is easy for me to say, since I do not have much. I only recently learned that Campeche had been Lopez's birthplace, which is how I stumbled across the board. I am hoping to go by USF or John Germany to see if they have info on Campeche history of the time.

He probably fled during Guerra de Castas 1847 -48 it was the same time my Great Grandfather appeared in Belize. We have no family history since then. No idea about his family or how he arrived from Spain

Troy, were you able to get any info from your Grandmother, Kathryn [Lopez] Lovell? If you have a chance to go to the cemeterry where they are buried, you might be able to get some info on Joseph Edward Lopez from the info they may have when he died, such as his parents & where in Mexico he was born. I can't get that info because I am not a descendant of his. I am doing this research for your cousin Charlie, Charles Lopez, son of Joseph P. Lopez & Margaret Louise [Futch]. Looking forward to hearing from you again.
