My GG Grandfather, Jose Silveira De Relva (Jose of the Relva as he was known) was from Ribeira Seca, Sao Jorge. He came with his brothers Manual and John to mine for Gold in Folsom CA in 1876. He and his brothers took the name surname Relvas. It's facinating learning about those who have come before us...
