I am a descendent of Jose Acebo b. June 29, 1854 in Santander, Spain. He died in Corpus Christi, Texas April 8, 1899. I believe his parents were J. Antonio Acebo and Thomasa. Jose's marriage and death certificates do not show his parent's names. A biographical history at the public library states that Jose left Spain for New Orleans, Louisiana in 1869. Military records show there was a Joaquin Acebo in Louisiana in 1862. I have not been able to establish what the relation might have been between Jose and Joaquin. A year later Jose moved to Brownsville, Texas where he worked as a clerk. Then he moved to Corpus Christi, Texas and opened his own dry goods and grocery store. Jose also owned land and cattle. He was involved in politics and served as an Alderman. His wife, Annie Kelly, was the daughter of a prominent ranch owner. Jose and Annie had ten children whose descendents still live the Corpus area. I would like to hear from other Acebos and relations. I am interested in the family history in Spain and the histories of other Acebo families in the US.
