I am looking for information on my grandmothers father, Joseph Ferreira. He married Mary de Freitas da Silva around 1891 or 1892 in Wailuku area, Maui, HI. They had 10 kids- maria, virginia, joe, manuel, antone, georgina, sophie, theresa, lucy, and alfred. In 1923, the Family moved to Oakland, California and started going by Ferreira Freitas. Lucy was my grandmother and didn't know her father too well because he died in 1925 in Oakland, California and she was only born in 1913.
Any information regarding Joseph (also went by Joe or Jose) Ferreira would be greatly appreciated. I believe he is from Madeira, Portugal but have no other info on him. He was at least 15 or so years older than his wife Mary, whom I have been able to trace back to Madeira, but have had no luck with her husband.
