Re: looking for Walter Acuna
My name is Ruben Acuna. I live in the San Gabriel Valley. I'm not sure if we're related or not but I do know that our last name was not very common in the S.G. Valley until about the last 40 yr.s or so. My Fathers name is also Ruben. My Grandfathers name was Enrique Acuna. He died in 1975. He was about 80 yrs. old when he passed away. I know that he was born in Montery Mexico and came to Los Angeles Ca.,I believe in the early 1900's. He was married twice. His first wife died and he got remarried to my Grandmother Mary Acuna in the mid 1920's. He had about 15 Children between both wives. My Father was born in 1936 in Los Angeles. This sounds crazy but I remember when my Grandfather died he had something like 60 Grandchildren at that time. I was born in 1959 also in L.A. and I've lived in the S.G. Valley for almost 40 yrs. Last Thurs. night I met some Acuna's at a High School Football in La Puente (in the S.G.V.) and we found out we were cousins and 2nd. cousins. Their names were John, John Jr. and Nicholas Acuna. I do know that there are many Acuna's now scattered all over So. Calif. especially in the San Gabriel Valley. I don't know much about my Granfathers siblings but I'll talk to my Dad this weekend and find out if he remembers a Walter Acuna. Who know's, we may be related.
