About Our Family Research
I am researching the Cortes family from Puerto Rico.
Vicente Antonio Cortes was born on 12/9/1892 in Barrio Maria de Moca, Puerto Rico and died 12/14/1975 in Brooklyn, New York. His father's name was Vicente Cortes-Loperena and his mother's name was Maria Garcia. His first marriage was to Antonia Rodriguez in the early 1900's (who died giving birth to their second son) and they had two daughters: Gumercinda and Antonia and one son: Mariano. His second marriage was to Ernesta Caban on 12/22/1921. They had six daughters: Vicenta, Aurora, Filomena, Gloria, Aurora, Blanca Iris and two sons: Ricardo and Enrique. All the children were born in Aguada, Puerto Rico and later on went to live in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. Ernesta Caban's father's name was Cancio Caban-Babilonia (from Spain) and her mother's name was Eustaquia Charneco.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
