António José da Silva - Madeira-->Hawaii

Classification: Query
Surnames: da Silva, da Camara
Wondering if anyone here is descended from this family and if you have other info about them. Here is what I have:

Antonio Jose da Silva was born in Parish of Se, Madeira. He married in 1873 to Beatriz Josepha da Camara. They left Madeira for Hawaii in 1879 with children Manuel and Leonid. All four show up on the ship manifest of the Ravenscrag. Antonio and Beatrice both died in 1920 in Honolulu.

According to the 1900 census they had a number of other children after arriving in Hawaii including Mary, Phillip, Antone, Virginia, and Frank, so I'm assuming there are a number of descendants in Hawaii and elsewhere. Phillip is my great-grandfather and he ended up in California which is where my grandfather, father, and I were born.
