Raica’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her third great-grandfather, Onofre Machado de Cerqueira (c. 1828, Piauí – September 4, 1903, Piracuruca, Piauí).

Raica’s paternal grandfather was Aderson Rodrigues de Brito (the son of Tertulino Rodrigues de Brito and Joana Batista de Brito). Tertulino was the son of Mariano Pereira de Cerqueira and Perpétua Rodrigues de Brito. Joana was the daughter of Clementino de Brito Passos and Isabel Batista da Conceição.

Raica’s maternal grandmother was Zeneide de Brito Melo (the daughter of Beneas de Moraes Melo and Avelina de Brito Melo). Beneas was the son of Abilio de Moraes Melo and Lina Rosa de Jesus. Avelina was the daughter of Eduardo de Brito Passos and Maria Rosa de Melo.

    I looked at a birth record in Piauí, and there is an annotation beside Jehovah’s birth record that he married Maria in 1980.
