I am also researching the APONTE family line from this same area and surrounding areas if MAYAGUEZ. My 2nd great grandmother was Guadalupe NIEVA APONTE (B:1888) her mother's surnames were APONTE PEREZ(abt 1870). Where did you get so much information? Is it possible to search church records for marriages from the 1800's of APONTE family groups? and what church should I try to contact from this area?
