Hi, I am also a direct decendant of Ponce De Leon. My father, Byron Leon II was born in Key West, Fla. His parents were Byron Leon I and Lucrecia Reveria My grandmother Lucrecia was born in cuba while her parents were in route to Fla from Spain. The De Leon family originated in Costillia Spain I believe. The family books were stolen and taken to Havana may years ago. My fathers family is still mostly in Tampa. But many at one time went to Texas and Arizona.
