Antone Cruz in Queen's Garden Converse Estate, Marion, Massachusetts
'This is a photo of my maternal grandfather who came to the United States in 1913 to work with his brother on the Converse Estate. Once he had established himself financially he sent for my grandmother whom he married after she arrived in the United States. From their homeland in Ribeira Grande, Sao Antao, Cape Verde. He was a gardener and chauffeur. He was responsible for all the gardening and had a crew of workers he would put to work each day. The house they lived in is still on the estate. Pictured: Antone Cruz. Location: Converse Point.'
