    Notes for Joseph DeSilva, Sr.:

    The History of Joseph DeSilva

    as told by himself to John DeSilva (grandson)

    He said:

    "My father was born in Spain where his father, my grandfather, seemed to be of considerable consequence in his own country. My father disagreed with his father on political issues. He then left Spain and went to Madeira Island with his young wife, who was Portuguese.

    My father being possessed of considerable means bought considerable estate. Many acres being mountainous and some being fertile valleys bordering the sea. He was an extensive grower of the vine, and grew many acres of grapes and had a wine cellar and presses and made much wine for export. He also raised considerable cane in the valleys.

    I remember my mother as being haughty and disdainful and have heard her express many times her dislike for Madeira and upbraid my father for leaving Spain. I have often heard her tell of her experiences at court.

    My father's name was Manuel, I being the only child.

    One evening while strolling on the seashore near my fathers estate, I then being a boy of sixteen, I saw a boat containing four men pull out from a ship then achored in the harbor. They then pulled towards me where I stood waiting. And seizing me dragged me into the boat and then pulled to the ship where I was put in the "hole". I was not allowed to come on deck. They weighted anchor and left the harbor. It proved to be a British vessel loaded with wine and sugar.

    I could speak no English and could not ascertain what was to be done with me. I at once became seasick. I was immediately put to work. I had often read of America and Philadelphia, America.

    During the voyage, which was about four month's duration. We put in at various places, but I was not allowed to go ashore. I was treated terrible on the trip and flogged on the least occasion. I was fully determined to escape the ship on reaching Philadelphia. After reaching Philadelphia I at once prepared myself for escaping. While the vessel was anchored in midstream of the Delaware River opposite the city, I having previously filled the pockets of my oilskin pea jacket with sea biscuit and salt meat, leaped overboard when there was no one on deck but the watch, and swam to what proved to be the Jersey shore. I lost my cap when I jumped overboard. I took the first road I came to which lead up the river, in hopes of finding some village. I met several persons, but none could speak my language, so I could not tell them who I was. I finally reached a little hamlet, where there was a store. I went in and by their actions it seemed to me they were trying to find where I was from. The storekeeper gave me some food and I traveled on. Night coming on, I slept in a small shed along the wayside.

    The Next day I reached a town which is now called Trenton. There I left the river and took a road leading to the right. Finally a gentleman riding in a coach, having a black driver, overtook me. He stopped and questioned me. Not understanding his language, I said in Portuguese, "Philadelphia". I afterwards found out he asked me where I was from and where I was going? He motioned for me to get in the coach, which I did, though I did not know where he was going. After a day of traveling we approached the village of Bloomfield, New Jersey. His name was Levi Bloomfield, and he was returning from a trip to Philadelphia by way of Trenton.

    He had a business in Bloomfield village and also owned a farm near the village. He gave me a suit of clothes and a cap and a different pair of shoes. Next morning he took me out to a nearby farm and showed me how to drive the horses and gave me other light work to do on the farm. I picked up the English language very rapidly.

    He and his family, consisting of two girls and a son. The soon acertained that I was a fair musician and a good singer. The next trip to Philadelphia, Mr. Bloom field purchased a Spanish guitar, which I was very familiar with. I often entertained the family by singing, especially Portuguese ballads, accompanying myself on the guitar, which members of the family seemed to enjoy very much. I drove Mr. Bloomfield to his business in the village almost every morning.

    The following winter I went to school with his son. Mr. Bloomfield, being a captain of a militia company of about twenty-five men, I joined the company. During this time I married and had one son, Ira. A little later the war broke out with Great Britain. I later enlisted and left my wife and little son with the Bloomfields. The Bloomfields were fine people.

    In my first encounter with the British I was taken a prisoner. They took me to Staten Island. Being a good swimmer, I made my escape under cover of darkness by swimming the narrows, and reached the Jersey shore, where I entered an American camp. I approached an officer and told my story. He immediately detailed a guard to escort me to Washington's head quarters. Washington finally asked me, after scanning me from head to foot, what I had to report. I told my story, explaining what I had heard and also of my escape, which he seemly doubted. He immediately sent for the captain of my company who knew me and who verified my story he asked me where I was from and I told him in broken Portuguese that I was from Portugal. Then he said: "Young man, you have done well. Let the remembrance of your service done your country be your reward. The country at this time being too poor to reward you with money, I will however, order you appointed a commission as ensign. You may now report to your regiment".

    I had never seen Washington except at a distance, and was much disappointed as I had expected to find a very handsome face. He had evidently at one time had smallpox, for his face was very pitted.

    A commission as ensign was offered me but I refused as I preferred to fight in the ranks. After my treatment aboard the British ship, I hated the English and wanted to kill as many of them as possible.

    I wrote to Madeira several times in Portuguese and also in English when I learned to write the English language, but never could get a reply. However, on my several trips to New York, I searched the docks for Portuguese sailors which there were many in those days and I finally found an old Portuguese whose home was in Fuchial, Madeira who knew my people, and he told me of my fathers death, about three years after I was kidnapped from the island. And that my mother had returned to Spain. I never heard from her thereafter. Remembering my experience on board of the British ship and the months it would take to reach my native land, I never returned to the place of my birth.

    I remember my mother as a very beautiful woman, loving to adorn herself with expensive clothes and valuable gems, of which she had many.

    My grandfather, whom I never saw, was a titled gentleman, though I never knew in what way, and I also never knew whether my father was exiled or had left Spain of his own volition. He seemed to have much wealth getting an allowance from Spain yearly. Therefore it seemed to me that he managed his estate more for love than profit."

    written by Dwight DeSilva, son of John DeSilva

    "The above is written from Memory of his live, told to my father and mother (John DeSilva and Christine Mattice DeSilva), therefore I do not claim that I am writing it in the same language as he told it. But the substance is the same.

    There are many other things regarding his army life, his experience at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and other anecodated which are of minor importance in his history, and therefore I refrain from writing further about him.

    His army service has already been written and proved by documentary records.

    In 1899 through the courtesy of General Ainsworth, then Chief of the Record and Pension Bureau, the War Dept. of this City furnished me with the records of service of my great-grandfather, in the Revolutionary War, and Abner DeSilva, my grandfather, in the War of 1812, which I requested to verify family tradition on my visit to scholarie Valley in the Catskills.

    I found that Mrs. Putnam (Grace Putnam's father was Abner DeSilva, son of Joseph DeSilva) had many documetary records which was furnished by the Adj. General of the state of New York and also by the county clerks of Schoharie, which she furnished me copies thereof, and for which I thank her very much. Therefore I concluded to go on with the history of Joseph DeSilva, of his life and war records, on July 31, 1925, I examined (the author) Fernow on file in the Library of Congress in this city, and in his work on "New York in the Revolution." I found a record that corroborated the record furnished by Mrs. Putnam. his name also appears in the Adj. General's office in New Jersey. Also in the Schoharie Co., Gazette as well as in the War Dept. of this city; also in the extract of speech made before the Schoharie Historical Society in 1842.
