I am looking for a Joseph and Caroilne Silva or Santos. Joseph had a sister Maria that came from Horta Fayal, Azore Islands to live with them. She arrived on the S.S. Madonna, arriving at Providence, Rhose Island, arriving on May 10, 1912. Joseph and Caroline met her and took her home with them.
In 1913 she had a baby boy, Louis. So, she would of been living with Joseph and Caroline at that time. She later moved or met someone.
She changed her name several times so it is difficult to know what she went by. She finally moved to California and was going by Mary Santos. She married my grandfather Harry Nicholas Miller and was living in Oakland, California.

Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

I found a male Silva b in New Bedford May 14 1913

His parents are Joaquim & Carolina. Both born in Terceira, Azore

Do you think this is the right family?

Thank you for responding. I will look into that name. My grandmother constantly changed her name through out her trek to California. We don't really know for sure if her last name is Santos or Silva. She used several last names with her three children, until she met my grandfather and married him. Then she had three more with my grandfather. I know she was sent to a Convent in Horta Faial, but we found out that the convent burned down so records were lost.
We think she was afraid someone was after her, I can't find papers on their marriage in California. So it is very hard trying to look and come up empty handed. I will try that name and see where it goes.

Thank you,
