I'm helping a friend research her family and we have hit a wall. An ancestor, Louis or Lewis DeFount (also spelled Defount) was born in the Azores in February 1864 and immigrated to the U.S. in 1876 (according to later census records). The earliest record we have is from an 1885 census in Iowa. Hope someone can help us find naturalization, immigration, ship logs, etc. so that we can find where in the Azores the family is from.
