Hello, del Fierro Family.My name is Josefina Maria Ferriols-Pavico but you may call me Joy for short.I belong to the line of Lucia del Fierro who married Vicente Macario Coscolla Ferriols of Valencia, Spain. I am also into research of family trees, tracing family roots, etc. The family tree I am building has some gaps and I have questions that perhaps you can answer.
1. Is Don Fernando del Fierro the same person as Don Miguel del Fierro?In a Verzon website, on the origin of the name del Fierro, the patriarch is referred to as Don Fernando del Fierro who had children namedYSABEL, LUCIA, and MARIQUITA. Lucia is said to have married Don VICENTE FERRIOLS from Valencia, España and their children were:JOSE (Pepe), VICENTE (Totoy), RAMONA, andat LUCIA (CHATA). I come from the line of Jose whom we refer to as LOLO DON PEPE.
In the biographical notes of Don Vicente Ferriols which was passed on thru generations thanks to his son Jose, the father of Lucia is referred to as DON MIGUEL DEL FIERRO - teniente del marina y corregidor que habia sido de varias provincias y de esta Zambales, donde fallecio en el ano 1822. Vicente never met his father in law as he met Lucia in 1848. His name is mentioned only once in the biographical notes.
2. Were the children of Don Fernando del Fierro only girls? did he have a son named Miguel? In the Verzon website, only three daughters were mentioned.In the biographical notes of Vicente, he spoke of a younger brother of Lucia named Miguel. In Verzon's account, the youngest sister of Lucia - Marquita had a youngest son named Miguel. Vicente recounts " En 4 Abril 1860 tambien fallacio de la misma enfermedad y por las misma cuasas mi cunado Don Miguel del Fierro,hermano menor de mi mujer en el pueblo de Sn Antonio y al siguiente dia se le entero en el campo santo de dicho pueblo."The eldest sister - Ysabel passed away five days before Miguel died.
3. May I know from whose line in the Del Fierro family didPresident Ramon Magsaysay come from? Was it from Ysabel, Marquita, Miguel, Lucia?
Thank you so very much - i would appreciate your comments and information to help me come up with a correct tree.
