Pat - as far back as I can go which is to the parents of Richardo Martin Gogue AFLAGUE (Ricky is my father-in-law) Ricardo ( Ricky) date of birth 12 Nov 1925 born in Agana, Guam to mother Francisca Gogue RAMERO, and father Justo Pangelinan AFLAGUE.I was told by my father-in-law, that his father Justo Pangelinan AFLAGUE, was a king on Truk Island, which if you get out a globe or map, will be found in the Western Pacific about 1,800 miles southeast of Manila.It was told to me when I was starting my research that Truk Island was of French control, so I believe it to be of French ancestory.The info. that I can give you regarding Truk Island (and yes, it is spelled correctly T r u k...is that Truk Islands form a large island group in the western Pacific, and are part of the eastern Carolinas.About 48 of them lie inside a barrier coral reef that forms a lagoon.There are about 50 small islets that lie along the reef.People do live on this island in the late 1980's about 40,000 people lived on those islands.I do not know the current population.The history regarding Truk island is that a French navigator, Louis Duperrey first discovered the islands in 1825.Germandy bought them from Spain in 1899, but lost them to Japan in World War I.The U.S. took control in 1947 as part of a United Nations trusteeship.In 1980, Truk and other Carolines formed the Federated States of Micronesia.In 1986 these islands became self governing and a political unit in free association with the U.S. SO...I can tell you from Guam, then the name Aflague, went back to Truk Island, and it was always told to me before Truk island it went back to France.We have always been lead to believe that the name aflague was from French ancestory.I hope this helps and if you have any further info. or would like more of the info. I have please feel free to contact me at AFLAGUEEXPRESS@AOL.COM.GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR RESEARCH!!
