"Peter J. Azevedo
History of Sonoma County
Contributed by Peggy Rowe
Not withstanding the fact that the Azores Islands are limited in area and which a comparatively small population, they have sent a large number of their substantial citizens to the United States, here to take an active part in the development and business affairs of our country. Among these is Peter J. Azevedo of Sebastopol, who was born in the Azores on the 31 day of December 1877, (a son of M. J. and Rose Azevedo, both of whom are deceased.) After receiving his educational training in the public schools of his native land, Mr. Azevedo, in 1892, when fifteen years of age, emigrated to the United States.
He located first in Massachusetts where he remained about twenty-two months and then came to California, locating at Two Rock, Marin county. In 1919, Mr. Azevedo "rented" seventy acres of land near Cunningham and has here engaged in general farming and diarying, in which he has met with very gratifying success. He keeps fifteen cows and has six acres in orchard, the remainder of the land being devoted to crops, as are commonly grown in this locality.
Mr. Azevedo was married to Miss Lucy Arria, whose death occured in October (29), 1918. To them were born four children,

Mary, Manuel, and Rose.
In political affairs, Mr. Azevedo gives his support to the republican party and he is also a member of the U.P.E.C. and the I.D.E.S. The prosperity which he enjoys is the result of energy rightly supplied and has been gained by commendable qualities. Because of his generous and kindly nature, he has won and retained the good will and esteem of all who have come in contact with him."
