Excerpt from The Wife of Columbus: With Genealogical Tree of the Perestrello and Moniz Families

About a year ago the American Register, of which we were for many years the Spanish and Portuguese correspondent, copied a paragraph from the Inter-Ocean to the effect that while tons upon tons of paper had been and were being used to glorify Columbus, nobody thought of employing a single sheet for the purpose of telling the world something about Columbus' wife.

That paragraph attracted our serious attention. We felt sure it must have been penned by a woman. Here were we, right at the fountain-head, with exceptional facilities for gathering data about that wife - we being not only a Portuguese journalist, but also a friend of descendants of her father's family, the Perestrellos, now living in Lisbon. Why shouldn't we undertake to find out something about this Portuguese woman and the influence she might have exercised upon the great navigator?

We immediately set about this congenial task, beginning with the pedigree of the Perestrello family.

With that pedigree our difficulties began. Dates and names would not agree, yet it seemed impossible that the very Perestrello family should be in error concerning their ancestors!

Our first step had, of course, been to apply to our friend Senhora Donna Eugenia de Souza and her husband, Senhor Sebastian de Perestrello, for all the information they possessed. Most courteously did they give it, but oh! it had never occurred to them to compare and analyze; with the easy acquiescence characteristic of these latitudes, they had taken all the family traditions for granted!
