My name is Raul Icochea G., and I am currently living in FL. I'm also interested in my family history. I've read every post regarding the Icochea family, and is woderful to know that there are other here in the US.
Here's another piece of data. My great-grandpa Isaac Icochea was the mayor of Canta for some time. My grandpa, who is 99 at the time (2010) was the principal of the school in Canta, and I have an uncle who is researching the family tree, his name is Orlando Icochea.
Today, my father lives in Pueblo Libre, but it's not the Icochea family M Jones describes in his post. However, most of the stories I've read so far are the same as the one my father and grandfather told me when I was young.
I don't know if anyone will reply to this message, but if there are any other Icochea out there, I beg you: HELP US FIND OUR FAMILY HISTORY. It is up to us to do so.
