I am looking for information on the family of Francisco Silveria born about 1840 in Portugal. I have very limited information on him.

I know he had a nephew named Manoel Baptista and a niece named Luduvina Baptista that possibly lived in Lisbon. He also had a niece named Maria Amalia (surname unknown) and a nephew named Belchior (surname unknown). Based on a letter, I believe he had a brother-in-law named Manoel Maria (surname unknown). The letter by Manoel Maria refers to Francisco as cunhado, which I think means brother-in-law.

Francisco Silveria immigrated to Texas in the 1800s, but was in Lisbon, Portugal visiting his family in 1909 based on a letter I have. I also have photos of various Portuguese relatives but I am unable to identify the people in the photos.
