Henrietta Mello Mayer has spent many years researching the descendants of Manuel and Mary Enos Silva. Their many US descendants stem from some of the earliest Portuguese to settle in Stonington, Connecticut, USA. She published her work in a slim volume, titled as this project is named. My family are direct descendants of this line, and the grateful beneficiaries of her work. As there is no current means to easily note a physical book source via Geni, I am providing reference to the Silva Descendents via this project.

The goal is to include all direct descendants of Manuel and Mary Enos Silva listed in her book, and to expand on it by adding those born since her book was compiled (pre-1980). Researchers finding they've connections to the lines noted here are welcome to add their findings to this project. Please add direct descendants and only those spouses of direct descendants with which they had children.
