my great grandfather is Joseph Silva born in Pico in 1875, May 4th to be exact. I believe he came to the USA between 1886 and 1902. Now it's quite interesting as well is that my grandfather has the name MANUEL GOULARTE SILVA born in 1911 in Fowler, CALIFORNIA. (FRESNO COUNTY)... Do you know if there was family in CAYUCOS OR CAMBRIA?If this sounds at all familiar please contact me.... lori firstname.lastname@example.org I DO BELIEVE this may be my grandfathers family.... As I too have Garcia cousins that live in Fresno that I talk to. I know one of my cousins was born in Dinuba, CA... He's a Garcia..... His parent's were SILVA/BETTENCOURT.
