all very interesting thank you. the first tony is antonio silva lorenzo, tom's father. the second tony is tom's older brother and nola his sister in law.I waas able to contact a family member who had a copy of tom's obituary and she showed it to me. unfortunately, lorenzo is a very common name and antonio was born in the azores so his lineage basically starts with his American life. thanks for this information.it gives me ideas about how to find information on the family.
