Antone Pereira Azevedo was the eldest child of Joseph Pereira Azevedo and Mary Katrina Bettencourt Silva Azevedo. He was born near the waterfront at Tiberon, Marin County, California in April 1870.
When Antone was about two years old, his family moved less than a half mile from Tuttletown where his father was a farmer and gold miner. With the help of Antone and his siblings, his father cleared the fields of rocks for easier plowing. They used the rocks to build walls which can be seen from Highway 49 to this day.
Antone was a blacksmith and farmer living most of his life near Tuttletown on the family ranch. He moved to French Flat, near Rawhide when he married a widowed lady, Mary Souza Martin, who had three children, Flora, Frank and Domingo. Antone was a father figure to the children, but as Antone's illness gradually worsened, he was no longer able to provide for the family. They divorced shortly before Antone's death.
Antone passed away of consumption after taking a turn for the worse while visiting his brothers, Manuel and Faustino, who were living in Oakland. He was buried in the Columbia Cemetery in the family plot.
Well known within the community, Antone was a member of the I.O.O.F. Lodge.
Antone's sisters were Mary and Leonore, and his brothers were Manuel, John, Faustino and a baby boy who passed away early.
Antone had a dark complexion and had brown eyes and dark hair. He was 5 feet, 10 inches tall.

To my grand-uncle Antone: I wish I knew you, but you passed away when Dad was a child. You were his favorite uncle, and you are the namesake of one of my sons.|
