Pagan Nazario Family

About Our Family Research

I would like to obtain more information on my Family History. The Pagán Family comes from Ponce and Ciales Puerto Rico. In my geneaology I am Pagán twice. My greatgrandmother Leoncia Colon Pagán her parents were Justiano Colon and Petronilla Pagán was from Orocovis PR. My grandfather was Jose Pagán Arroyo he was born in Ciales PR in 1908 his wife Eulogia Rivera Colon was born in Orocovis in 1906. Leoncia's husband was Antonio Rivera Ortiz also from Orocovis. This part of the family is from el Barrio Magueyes Sector Matacańas in Orocovis. Jose's parents were Guillermo Pagán Figueroa his parents were Joaquin Pagán and Maria D. Figueroa from Ponce and Isabel Arroyo Hernandez from Ponce/Villalba her parents were Catalino Arroyo and Maria Hernandez. I do not know much about the Figueoroa's , Hernandez, or Arroyo's. They both were born in the late 1800's.

On my mom's side the Nazario are from San German PR. My grandfather was Juan Angel Nazario Cruz. His parents were Emilio Nazario Lopez his mother was Mariana Lopez and Carmen Cruz Santiago her mother was Juana Santiago both from San German. Emilio loved to fool around. Rafael Nazario is my grandfathers brother. My grandfather always bragged that the entire Nazario clan came from one family and that the singer Ednita Nazario was related to us. I do know that the Nazario's are spread from San German to Ponce PR. I don't have any information on the Cruz, Lopez and Santiago side of the family.

The other side of mom's family are the Alfonso-Rivera they are from Aguadilla La cuasta vieja. I do have some aunts with Suarez last name. My great grandfather was Eusebio Alfonso Villanueva he was from Spain and his mother was Carlota Villanueva she was from the Canary Islands. My greatgrandmother was Redencion Rivera she was from Aguadilla.

If anyone has any connection please email me. I am always trying to get more info on my family. I am trying to make the Spain or Italy connection.

God Bless!
