  • Notes 
    • Information about Antonio Silva comes from various oral family stories. It's believed he was married at least two times. The first marriage produced son Francisco and possibly others. Another marriage produced daughter Caroline and possibly others. Some descendents believe that a daughter traveled to Brazil where she was a nun. Grandaughter Marylou (nee Rodrigues) Santos disclosed that he may have traveled to India (Goa?), and that Caroline's mother was possibly a Portuguese woman from the Indian colonies; however, later research by Doug Holmes located her baptism record that corroborated her name, and that she was a native of Pinheiro, Madeira. This information discredits the Asian Indian connection. Source: 110203a.
