Felisa Silvan Martin sailed on the SS ORTERIC in 1911 with her parents, Victorino Luciano Silvan Hernandez and mother, Romana Martin Lorenzo along with sister, Teodora and twin brothers, Jacinto and Celestino to the sugar fields of Hawaii before moving to California in the early 1920s.

When she arrived in California, she changed her name to the American equivalent of Felisa to Alice. At age 18, she met Joe Medeiros and married him. They had two sons, Melvin Andrew in 1925 (who died in WWII in 1945) and Jerome Stanley, who lived until 2006.
