So I think this is the Rose, John and Pauline that sent the sympathy card.

Manuel may be a brother of Filomena.
So lets see if I have this right.
Filomena Silveria married a Moura and they had a daughter Maria Moura, your grandmother.
I have NOT found a marriage for Filomena/Philomena or Maria. Here are a couple of possible death records for Maria.
And below that are possible arrival records for Filomena and her mother (Carolina)

What was your grandfather and greatgrandfathersname?
Was Maria born in the Azores?
Is White your maiden name?
My connection to the line is thin. Pauline's brother John had a daughter, El Doris Beatrice Goulart. She was the "significant other" of my wife's father.
