I thought I posted a msg earlier, but I don't see it here yet, so I'll post another one, how about that?
So, my full birthname is Luis Manuel Alicea Morales. My father was Luis Alberto Alicea, my mother's name is Luz Eneida Morales. My father is from Bauta Arriba, Orocobis, PR. My mother is from Tejas, Humacao. They met in NYC. Moved to Aibonito, PR in 1963. They had 11 children, Roberto, Eli Samuel, Raquel, Margaret, Myriam, Elizabeth, Dámaris, Luis Manuel (that's me:)), Daniel, Benjamin, and David.
My father's grandfather was Don Juan Ildefonso. Abuelo (Don Juan) had 1 wife and 5 other women with whom he had 26 children in total. I don't know them all, much less my cousins. Some of my uncles/aunts (& nicknames) names are Carlos Juan, Marta, Crecencia, Olga, Pepín, Delmi, Antonio (Toño),Santos, Ismael, Cano, Imelda, etc. Only a few of the 26 children bore the surname of "Ildefonso", the rest were given their mothers' last name, like my father.
I'd be interested in finding out if anyone here knows any persons by the names mentioned above...
At any rate, it's good to be an "Alicea" and apparently we're all from PR. Who would've known?
Well, Aliceas b good,
Luis Manuel Alicea (Luisito)
