As for the strange way I have the surname listed, my 3 great grandfather
Bernardino Jose de Andrade b: 1819 moved to Sao Miguel from Santa Maria
sometime prior to his first marriage in 1841 to Escolatica Maria do
Espirito Santo (it is along her line that the Silva surname appears). This
marriage produced 3 children. Their first child Francisco Bernardo (2 great
grandfather) used the surname of de Andrade until his children were born
when he adopted the Silva surname. Hence the da Silva/de Andrade surname.
It just so happens that his wife Anna de Mello adopted the surname de
Medeiros (her paternal great grandmother's surname) when she married
