Sorry for replying to your message 3 yrs. later but I just came upon this website. My name is Ralph Aquino. My dad told me that I was related to the Aquino clan in the Philippines. My father's name is Hilario Aquino. He was born in Molokai, Hawaii on 10/10/1929. His father(my grandfather) name is Becente' Domingo Aquino born in 1898 somewhere in Tarlac(?),Philippines. I only have bits and pieces of my heritage. Here is a few...my father told me on several occasions that my grandfather is 1st cousin to Benigno (Ninoy) Aquino's father. My grandfather was the youngest of 10 or 11 kids(6 sisters, 4 or 5 brothers)? He married a woman named Marta(Martha?) Luis(Luiz?)which was his 1st wife. Later he married my grandmother the former Trinidad Laurente. Both my grandparents lived out their lives in Hawaii after coming from the Philippines. My Grandfather's mother is full Chinese. There was a story of one of my grandfather's sister was runned over by a japanese tank during WWII. Also, my step uncles(Fermin and Jose) told my dad that there were family get togethers at hacienda's(here in US we say ranches)in the Philippines. Both my step uncles came over to Hawaii after WWII. I believe one has passed away 5 years ago. Maybe, we might be related in some way? Me, my father and his brothers are very interested in finding our roots. My email address is email@example.com. Thank you...Ralph
P.S. I will also be posting this same message in reply to another posted message. The more help we get the better!
