1870 FRANCIS SYLVESTER and his family is listed.(I know they owned land.)
1880 FRANCIS SYLVEST and most of his family is listed.(I know they owned land.)
When a person changes their name, it is legally done, as I did mine.
Is their any proof of the name change from SYLVERA to SYLVESTER or SYLVEST?
I know from reading that those Documents of becoming a citizen were delayed.
How could the names on himself and his children plus land and church records be SYLVEST(ER).
It had to have a name change first.
Does Amite Court House have anything? If not, forever and a day my ancestor from Portugal will be SYLVEST.(Silvester was pronunced SILVES in one family named, SIMPSON.)

On a Historical event, the homeland of FRANCIS SYLVEST was Portugal. They had an INQUISITION from, May 22, 1536-1821. That ended when FRANCIS SYLVEST was a young teenager.
Before he was 20, he worked on a whaling ship in the North Atlantic. He used to have a schooner in transporting from the north shore to New Orleans. They raised sheep.
Thank you.
If any school gives field trips, be sure to visit the SYLVEST CEMETERY.

Can someone find out what his name was on Jan.18,1861 and on Jan. 22,1861 in Tangipahoa Parish,La. He had 201.14 acres and 121.11 acres? I don't live in that area. The key to his REAL NAME would be on that Land. Thank you.

FRANCISCO SYLVERA became a US Citizen on 10 FEBRUARY 1872.
The name on the copy of his document is not SYLVESTER or SYLVEST.
My ancestor FRANCIS SYLVESTER/SYLVEST is not the same man on that Document.
Grandpa FRANCIS SYLVEST had land in 1861, census and other records of him being SYLVEST. never SYLVERA.

For slow readers, 1872 is a later date than 1861. One man, FRANCIS SYLVESTER/SYLVEST was already here.
