Ferreira in Puerto Rico

I am searching for information about the Ferreira family in Puerto Rico. My grandfather was Felipe Ferreira Cruz. He had a sister named Maria Ferreira Cruz. He lived in the town of San Sebastian, Puerto Rico and died around 1976 at 85. He was born around 1891 in this town. His father was Juan Ferreira and Dominga Cruz. His father and mother died when he was 6 years old. We know he had an uncle, named Lorenzo Ferreira, also from San Sebastian, Puerto Rico. Nobody in our family know from were they came. My mother tells that my grandfather said that he born in San Sebastian, but his father came from Portugal. Could be, but, improbable that a person came directly from Portugal to San Sebastian, a small agricultural town in the mountains of Puerto Rico, in the late 1800.
In case you have some information or think that we are related, I will like to year from you. Right know my grandfather's decendents are all over the island specially in the north and metropolitan area of Puerto Rico and in some states of the East coast like New Jersey, Milkwakee and Chicago.
