  • Notes 
    • Multiple Antonio Silvas emigrated from Madeira to Hawaii between 1875 and 1885, the period during which Antonio was known to have arrived in the Kingdom of Hawaii. The most likely Antonio Silva match for the family tree arrived on July 7, 1883, arriving alone on the British steamship S.S. Hankow.
