Hi Ron, Glad to see your update. It looks like your great grandfather Joao Pinto da Silva might have traveled to Hawaii on the ship Ravenscrag along with my paternal great grandparents Joao and Maria Augusta and Manuel Pereira de Jesus and his wife Henriqueta. My maternal great grandmother Amelia Augusta Pereira, and her young son Joao were also on the ship. Amelia met and married my great grandfather Manuel Goularte Silva on Oahu and moved to Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii and grew coffee, cattle and lots of children. Manuel and Henriqueta went on to Kohala with Joao and Maria. We now live and work in Virginia, but plan to return to Hawaii this summer for a visit. While there I will do more ressearch on the family. I hope to someday get to meet some of your side of the family.. Aloha, Dick
