I am desperate to find Family members if you could help.
This was my great grand father. He arrived in Honolulu, HI in 1881 and in the 1900 census this is the name that he used. The name on the Passenger list was Joaquim da Silva. In abt. 1909 he went for a visit to MA and died there or on route there. I have not found anything on him since the 1900 Census.
Anyone having any information on him, please contact me.
I was going to check the Mass Vital records for any death entries. About when was he born and where? The family on the 1900 census did they use the surname Mello or Silva? It appears there is quite a large population of da Silvas and da Mellos from the Azores.
This is the information that I have from the passenger list. Joaquim da Silva and wife Maria da Conceicao arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii. on the SS Sulfolk on 25 Aug 1881 with three sons. Manuel (11) Jose (7) and Anotonio (3). The ship sailed from San Miguel. I don't know if they were from that Island or one of the other Islands in the Azores.
Joaquim was born abt. 1835. He was 39 years old when he came to HI. Somewhere along the line, Mello was added to the name. The 1900 Cencus list him as Joaquim Silva da Mello.
I would have to say that I am extremely jealous! I would take Vog over mundane desert anyday. If you do come up with possible family links let me know. Perhaps we could find the family he was visiting in the Mass vitals.
