I have just started trying to trace Silvia's from Cohasset. My great grandmother was Mary Lavinia Sylvia, she had 4 brothers, George, John, William, Mathew, who had a daughter Virgie, . Their parents were Isabel Pratt Taylor and Manuel Silvia. I know Virgie was my grandmother's cousin, she had a daughter named Nola. John had a son named John who died in WW11 I think at Anzio, and they lived in Brockton. There are some graves in the Beechwood Cemetary (Cohasset) across the road from a firestation and playground we used to go to on Memorial day and the family home was a the street alongside the playground. Is that any help?

Hi,
Thanks, for the reply. I don't know. Who were Manuel's parents? I have a manuel in the Family. He has a sister named Rose and Reather and a few more! Rose lived on Beechwood then moved to Spring St. with her husband Antone? Does any of this ring a bell?

I don't know anything about his familly or where he came from. I only know the womens names before him. He married Isabelle Pratt Taylor, her parents were Cordelia Atwood Bell and William Taylor. I saw a grave stone in Beechwood with Isabelle and Manuel it had a list of children Frank Henry and Mathew.....but I know my g. grandmother, Mary Lavinia Silvia had 4 brothers George, John, Mathew and William. So I'm not entirely certain if perhaps Manuel had been married previously and had the first 3 children by a first wife? My grandmother died in 1985 she was the one who knew most of the family history, My grandmother, Mary Lavinia and Phillip A. Iotte's daughter, was Estella May Iotte and she had a brother named Manuel Iotte. Most of them lived in Brockton. Manuel Silvia's son Mathew had a daughter named Virgie, she had a daughter named Nola Love. John had a son named John who died in WW11 I just found a tattered news clipping about that.Does that help you any?

Hi, I have an Antoine L. Silvia in my family tree. He married Lucie A. McPhee and they had 13 or so kids in Cohasset. I am speculating that Manuel Silvia and Annie Fratus were Antoine's parents, but I am not sure of that. I know Antoine is buried in Beechwood Cem. in Cohasset, and there is another couple's name on the stone but I cant think of who it is at the moment. If you can clear up or make any connections, I would love to know about them.

The name on the stone of Anthony and Lucy Silvia is William Martin who died in 1952. I know that recently in the last few years a second name, his wife I assume, has been added to the stone. I dont have that name recorded. I was mistaken on the cemetery name, they are buried in Woodside Cemetery in Cohasset. Sorry about that.

Hi April. I just found your post from 2005 on the SYLVIA message board. These sound like some of the same people I have found connected with my research. In the 1860 census from Cohasset I have the following:

Family #1589
John JOSEPH 49 Laborer b.Portugal
Mary A. PEARCEY 25 b.Portugal(his daughter?)
Frank PEARCEY 21 Mariner b.Portugal
Wreatha JOSEPH 14 b.Portugal(I think she married LEONARD)
Joseph JOSEPH 21 Mariner b.Portugal
Antone JOSEPH 12 b.Portugal

Family #1707
Manuel SYLVIA 32 Mariner b.Portugal
Mary J.orG. " 35 b.Portugal
Family #1708
John SYLVIA 34 Mariner b.Portugal
Mary A. " 33 b.Portugal
Angeline " 16 b.Portugal(this is my ancestor and I believe she marries Joseph PIERSON in 1861). I think Joseph is related to Frank PEARSEY from the family # 1589. Frank becomes PEARSON/PIERSON in later census's.

Do any of these sound familiar? I have census info. from 1860 - 1880. And also some birth and marriage records. But the names keep changing and it gets confusing. I have nothing prior to 1860.

Surnames: Silvia,
Hi. Your assumption was correct.Manuel Silvia & Anna(Frates)Silvia were the parents of Antoine L., who was married to Lucy Ann(McPhee). Yes, there were at least 13 children born.
They were as follows: (not necessarily in the right order of birth). ANNIE, JULIA, TONY, JACK, LAURA, LUCY, FREDERICK, MANUEL, GRACIE, WALTER, MARY, EVELYN, and GLADYS.Gladys was my grandmother, who passed away 6/12/1990. Jack passed away in 2000. There are still members of the Silvia family that reside in Cohasset.The family of Jack Silvia. His wife, Lois and their four sons and families. I hope this helps.

Hi, thank you. I wonder if anyone in the family has any photos of Lucy or perhaps her brother Amos who was my gr. grandfather? If you are on Facebook, you can send me a message there. Just punch in Paula Mine. Thank you for the information.
