I'm looking for maternal grandfather's Marrero & Martinez family.My grandfather was named Jose Marrero-Martinez.He was born in Las Villas, Cuba about 11 August 1906.
Jose's father was Claro Marrero and he was considered an "Isleno", so I don''t know if he came from Islas Canarias (Canary Islands) or his family came from there.Claro was married to a lady named either Manuela or Maria or Manuel Maria Martinez.They had at least 9 children and they lived in Las Villas, Cuba.The towns mentioned in the family stories are Santa Isabel de las Lajas, Mata, and Santa Lugarda - all located in province of Las Villas in Cuba.
Claro Marrero & Manuela/Maria Martinez's children (don't know the order): 1.Pedro Marrero - Martinez 2.Zero Marrero - Martinez 3.Juan Marrero - Martinez 4.Ramona Marrero - Martinez 5.Jose Marrero - Martinez born about 11 Aug 1906 6.Luisa Marrero - Martinez (I have a pic of her) 7.Lazara Marrero - Martinez 8.Manuela "Mela" Marrero-Martinez (I have a pic of her) 9.Sergio Marrero-Martinez
Jose Marrero-Martinez had two wives, Jose's 1st wife (esposa) one was Nila Maria Gonzalez-Garriga, daughter of Emilio Gonzalez-Muniz & Adelfina Garriga-Perez de Oro.
Jose Marrero-Martinez & Nila Maria Gonzalez-Garriga's children were:Maria Ramona Marrero-Gonzalez, Diego Manuel Marrero-Gonzalez, Ana Luisa Marrero-Gonzalez, & Bertin Julian Marrero-Gonzalez.
Jose Marrero-Martinez's 2nd wife, don't know if actually married or just lived together was Ida Garcia wo was from Nueva Gerona, Isla de Pinos, Cuba. They had at least the following children:Laura Marrero-Garcia, Mireya Marrero-Garcia & Jose Marrero-Garcia. I think there was at least one more child to this couple.
Jose Marrero died around 1980 at Nueva Gerona, Isla de Pinos, Cuba (I think the island in Cuba is now known as Isla de las Juventud)
