I am looking for information on my grandmother, she changed names often so here I go. On her Alien Registration Form she has Maria de Santos. She was from Horta Fayal, Azore Islands. She came to America on the S.S.Madonna arriving at Providence, Rhose Island on May 10, 1912. Her brother picked her up Joseph and Caroline de Silva or Silva or Santos. I just don't know.
Maria's father was a fisherman and was lost at sea. Her mother died after the father. Maria was a little girl, so she went to live with a sister. The sister could not take of her so she sent her to a Convent. The Convent burned down so I do not have a name or where it is.
Maria came to America eventually changed her name to Mary and married my grandfather Harry Nicholas Miller. Living in Oakland, California.
If someone can help me I would appreciate it.
