Is anyone else out there researching APONTE from Barranquitas? Let’s talk!
I have APONTE on two different lines from Barranquitas:
My ggg grandfather was Eusebio APONTE (born about 1797? in Barranquitas?, died between 1868-1879). He was married to Maria Magdalena ORTIZ ALVARADO (born circa 1797 in Barranquitas, died 25 Jan 1892 in Barranquitas, P.R.).
Their children were: Alejandro APONTE ORTIZ (my gg grandfather)(about 1817 – 27 Dec 1897, Barranquitas) Pablo APONTE ORTIZ (about 1824 – 27 May 1886, Barranquitas) Josefa Eleuteria APONTE ORTIZ Maria Cleofe APONTE ORTIZ Maria Julia APONTE ORTIZ Jose Eduvijis APONTE ORTIZ
And on another line:
Another ggg grandfather of mine was Juan Manuel RIVERA APONTE (born about 1810 in Barranquitas, died 28 Mar 1898 in Barranquitas). His parents were Juan de las Mercedes RIVERA and Andrea APONTE. He was married twice. His first wife was Soledad COLON COLON (my ggg grandmother). His second wife was Maria Francisca COLON.
I have some notes on other people who I think might connect with these but I’m not sure quite how yet.
