Ancestors and descendants of Don Francisco SERBIA

May 26, 1998

Surnames: Alberto, Almodovar, Colon, Gonzalez, Hernandez, Madera, Maldonado, Rivera, Rodriguez, Ruiz, Ortiz, Torres, Vega

Looking for any information and/or links to any of the following, all who either were from the Ponce, Puerto Rico area or at least lived there for a significant part of their lives:

Juan Alejo RIVERA RODRIGUEZ (abt. 1797 - aft. 1873), believed to have come from Juana Diaz to Adjuntas where he married Maria Fermina TORRES GONZALEZ in 1818. He was Adjuntas' "Alcalde Constitutional" around the mid-1830's when he re-married Eusebia TORRES MALDONADO after being widowed.   Known to have lived in Ponce late 1860's early 1870's.   His parents, from Juana Diaz also?, are believed to be Juan RIVERA (?-?) and Francisca GONZALEZ (?-?)

Gregorio RIVERA married to Anastasia RIVERA. Both known to have lived in Ponce during the late 1870's.  Perhaps came from "Barros" actual location unknowm.  Perhaps a barrio, or a former name for a pueblo (Morovis & Orocovis come to mind).   Any ideas would be appreciated!   Had two known children: Margarita Rivera (1873-1941) and Nepomuceno Rivera (1878-1923).  Family oral history says they may been from "las islas canarias," but this is unconfirmed as the above is all we have on them!!   More info available on some of their descendants.

Francisco Lope MALDONADO (1803?-aft. 1868) married Juana Bautista de Santiago (1806?-aft. 1868), both believed to be from Utuado. Known to have been in Adjuntas about 1828, in Ponce as early as 1840. Looking for link to the Utuado MALDONADOs. Progenitor of many of the Ponce MALDONADOs, though not all.   More info available on the Ponce MALDONADOs.

Francisco ALBERTO married Juana HERNANDEZ, known to have lived in Ponce about 1827.  Had at least one son Cecilio ALBERTO HERNANDEZ (1821?-1901) who is the progenitor of just  about all the "ALBERTs," a corruption of ALBERTO, in the Ponce area. Many also have had a  daughter named Ramona ALBERTO HERNANDEZ (1825?-??) who married a Casimiro RUIZ  ORTIZ.  Have lots of info on the ALBERTs, now looking for the ALBERTO ancestors.

Gervasio VEGA (1795?-aft.1846) married Nicolasa MADERA (1810?-aft.1868), lived and had children in the Ponce-Penuelas area. Both believed to be from Penuelas and may be related to the  Yauco VEGAs and MADERAs.  Nicolasa's father may have been a Marcos MADERA. More info available on Gervasio's descendants.

Maria de la Paz ALMODOVAR TORRES (1835?-1915) married Juan Jose VEGA MADERA (1825?-bef. 1901), son of the above couple, and lived in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Her father may have been a Jose ALMODOVAR COLON (1795?-aft.1860). More info available on their off-springs.

Would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone with any leads, links, ideas, or suggestions for further research on the above. Extremely interested in hearing from any "lost" primos y primas.

Surnames: Colon, Gonzalez, Muñoz, Rivera, Santiago, Soto, Vargas

I am looking for members of both my father's side of the family as well as my mother's. My father's: Muñoz, Rivera, Colon, Vargas. They are from Coamo, Cayabo, "Olla Onda" ???, Juana Diaz, as far as I know.   My mother's: Santiago, Gonzalez, Soto. They are from Guayabal, Pastillo, Santurce

May 25, 1998

Surnames: Cruz, Droz, Hernandez, Reyes, Rodrigues, Sardem, Sardim

Looking for any records of both grandfathers and paternal grandmother born in either Ponce or Yauco, middle 1800's. Diego Hernandez, b. 19 Dec 1897;  Jose Sixto Droz,
b. 6 Feb 1880;  Maria/Mary Rodrigues Sardim/Sardem, b. 24 Feb 1886. All three ended up in Hawaii.  Diego married a local girl, Jose and Maria married about 5/10 Aug 1907.   Jose's parents were Manil Droz and Nazareth Cruz, Diego had a brother, Gallo. His parents were Louis Hernandez and Reyes was his mother's name.   The first immigration ship may have been the Rio de Janeiro, from which port of exit or entry, I do not know.  The dates I do not know. They went to Hawaii because there were jobs in the sugar cane fields and maybe the pineapple fields also.

Any way of getting any information will be appreciated. I was born in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, in 1941 just before the war. Because of the territorial status at that time, it is difficult to find information concerning the State of Hawaii, which happened in 1959.

Se solicitar información sobre los descendientes de Manuel De Jesús Franqui y Catalina Martínez, ambos de Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. Necesito determinar si este Manuel De Jesús Franqui es hijo de Martín Franqui Ramos, natural de Añasco, Puerto Rico. Manuel y Catalina eran los padres de José Z. Franqui Martínez (¿Mayagüez?). José Z. se caso con María Dolores Del Río Quiñones (¿San Sebastián?) y los dos procrearon a José Tomas, José Segundo (n. 1 abril 1877 - Mayagüez), y Julia (n. 27 mayo 1891 - Mayagüez).

May 23, 1998

Surnames: Devary, Dumford

I am interested in tracing the ancestors and descendants of JOSEPH DEVARY, b. 1755 in Canary Islands, died in Winchester (Clark County) Kentucky, USA. Joseph was a Spanish Soldier who came to the USA through Cuba, about 1800. He married a widow by the name of Mrs. Dumford in 1801. Joseph died about 1844-1846 in KY. Joseh Devary was apparently a devout Catholic, leaving "30 masses" to his relatives in a Last Will and Testament. Perhaps through Catholic Church, or Spanish Military, or ship log records of voyages between Canary Islands and Cuba (circa 1800) would be terrific to locate Joseph Devary's parents and ancestors, BECAUSE:

JOSEPH DEVARY is believed to be the origin of ALL Devarys in the USA (whether the name is spelled Devary or DeVary). It would be terrific to be able to trace the Devary lineage beyond Joseph. Thanks for any information/assistance.

Artés Arana de Padilla.  Espero que la información contenida aquí sea de interés a otros genealogistas de la comunidad puertorriqueña.

José Rivera Nieves


Esto es lo que tengo sobre la descendencia Colmenero. Proviene de datos sumistrados por el dentista Dr. José Luis Colmenero, ya fallecido, al primo de mi mamá, Felipe Arana Román. Ambos trabajaban guardando datos de la familia y este último me lo dió a mí. Puede que Felipe también haya muerto pues cuando dejé a PR en el 90 ya él se acercaba a los 100 años.

Doña Severiana Colmenero Quijano era natural de Isabela, P. R., e hija de Don Máximo Colmenero y Romero, nacido en la Isla de la Margarita en 1795. Falleció en Manatí, P. R., el 4 de febrero de 1867. Había sido desposado en Añasco , P. R. el 13 de mayo de 1823 con Doña María del Carmen Quijano y López de Victoria que había nacido en Añasco el 20 de agosto de 1803.   Era hija de Don Domingo Miguel de Quijano y Ortíz de la Renta, natural de Añasco que ingresó al Ejército el 25 de enero de 1795, fue teniente de Infantería de milicia de P. R. el 22 de agosto de 1813.   Fue casado con Doña Baltasara López de Victoria y Ortíz de la Renta, y se casaron en la Parroquia de San Antonio Abad de Añasco el 14 de julio de 1800. Fueron los padres de los desposados Don Manuel de Quixano, Sargento Mayor de Urbanos y Doña Francisca de Paula y Ortíz de la Renta -
de ella - Don Mateo López de Victoria, bautizado en San Germán el 5 de julio de 1739, alférez del Regimiento de Milicias Disciplinarias de Caballerías y Da. Antonia Ortíz de la Renta y Rivera, nacida en 1749 y que murió en Añasco el 15 de junio de 1814.

Don Mateo López de Victoria era hijo de Don Antonio López de Victoria y Da. Ana Segarra de San Germán.

Don Máximo Colmenero y Romero, que mencionamos al principio era hijo de
Don Juan Miguel Colmenero y de Da. Serafina Romero, y descendía del
General Don Juan Colmenero de Andrade, natural de Pazos, Galicia, Caballero de la Orden de Calatrava en 1612. Gobernador de Tierra Firme y Almirante de la Armada que casó en Lima, Perú, con Da. Paula Piraldo y Herrera en 1651 y dejó sucesión.

El General Don Juan de Andrade Comenero era hijo legítimo de Don Francisco de Morais
Colmenero y de Da. María de Andrade. Sus abuelos paternos eran Don Basco Colmenero de Lomba, de la casa de Gargalo? de donde eran Señores sus padres y abuelos, y Da. Isabel de Morais, natural de Vilardoso, donde era la casa y solar de sus padres.

Los abuelos maternos eran Don Gregorio Salgado Gondin, natural de Monterroso y descendiente por varón de la casa Monterroso, y Da. Aldonza Rodríguez de Villamarín, hijade Ruy Díaz de Sanjurjo y Montenegro y de Da. Teresa de Cambay Taboada, señores de Coto de Maedu, de la casa del Conde de Lemos.

Otros hermanos de Da. Severiana Colmenero, esposa de Don Antonio Evangelista Arana eran:

1. Da. Obdulia Colmenero Quijano
2. Don Jesús Gregorio Colmenero Quijano
3. Don Justino Colmenero Quijano, que casó don Da. Teodosia Álvarez
4. Don Francisco Colmenero Quijano, que casó con Da. Serapia Cayo
5. Da. Alejandra Colmenero Quijano que casó con D. Juan Lacomba
6. D. Genaro Colmenero Quijano que casó con Da. Clotilde de Reyes
7. D. Cástulo Colmenero Quijano que nació en 1840 y casó con Da. Filomena Betancourt
8. D. Aureliano Colmenero Quijano nacido en 1844
9. D. Teodosio Colmenero Quijano, nacido en 1843 en Isabela, y que casó con Da. Dolores
Rodríguez de Silva y González, en Isabela el 6 de dic. de 1877. De este matrimonio hubo un hijo:

a. Don José Colmenero Rodríguez que casó con Da. Filomena Méndez de Cardona. Tuvieron un sólo hijo llamado:

a. Dr. José Luis Colmenero y Méndez que casó con Da. Raquel Valcourt y Muñoz de Oneca.  Procrearon a:

1. Raquel Colmenero Valcourt
2. José Luis Colmenero Valcourt
3. Ana Teresa Colmenero Valcourt


En campo azul, un león rampante: de su cola cae una espada, de empuñadura de oro, metida por la boca y que le sale por detrás de la cabeza y en el jefe, cinco medias lunas de plata, con las puntas hacia abajo puestas en faja.

Como dato interesante puedo añadir que éstas son copias de las páginas 5, 6, y 7 a maquinilla que parece que por ser las relacionadas con nuestra familia, le dió el Dr. Colmenero a mi primo, las páginas del 1 al 4 también deben tener material bien importante pero no las tengo. Quizás alguno de los Colmenero Valcourt descendientes, las tengan en su haber.
