Rose F Lima Dias and family Brickwall

Searching for infromation on my great-grandmother Rose F Lima Dias.

She was born in St. Vincente Cape Verde December 1892 or 1893.

My late uncle Antonio told me her parent's were Manoel or Manuel Lima and Maria or Mary Faial or Fayal both from St. Vincente.I know she came to America sometime in the middle to late 1900's and setteled in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Nana Rose was married three times her first husband was Manuel Rose they had one child that I know of Cassimero born around 1907, I believe there are at least two more sons Manuel Jr and Mario. I am not sure if he was born in Cape Verde or in New Bedford, Mass. Rose and Manuel divorced year unknown but it is believed they divirced in New Bedford, Mass. Rose's second husband was Julio Encarnacao they had four children Julia who died at the age of two, Mary Ann(nickname May) and Anna, they divorced yet again no information. She married her third husnband my grandfather Antonio M. Dias they had three children Rosalina, Lucille(my mother) and Antonio Jr.

Rose died January 1948 in Taunton State Hospital after a long battle with Huntingdon's Chorea which is a neurological disease and is buried at St. John Cemetery in New Bedford in the St. Catherines section i wonder if any other family members are buried nearby. I am looking for her parent's my great-grand parents Maria and Manuel and the possibility any siblings. If anyone happens to be a desendant and has any information I would love to compare notes and chat about our family. Thank you for our time!
