Re: Coloso from New York
Hi Jason.My name is Joey Coloso, 50yrs old and a driving instructor in New York City.I have 3 brothers: Tim who used to play for Toyota in the PBA and now lives in New Jersey; Bobby and Alex who work as chefs in Abu Dhabi and Dubai,respectively.We all grew up in Sta. Ana, Manila.Our 83yr old dad, Roberto Coloso, Sr., has a half brother named Felipe Valencia.Their mother's name was Rosario Yusay Coloso and I think her bothers and sisters called her Chayong. I remember her showing me a picture of her brother, Lorenzo, who look like Pres. Manuel Quezon. If that's the case then your father and my father are first cousins and you are my second cousin. Among my grandma's siblings; Manuel,a Silay fiscal from Bacolod, and Marina, a pharmacist from Silay, were the ones I met a number of times.I met an older sister who was married to a Benedicto from Victorias when I went there for a visit with Lola Chayong more than 30 yrs ago.She also mentioned to me another brother named Fermin whose son, Ernesto, was a Philippine Air Force Officer.By the way , how were you related to Augusto Coloso, Sr. from Cotobato City? He usually visited us in Sta. Ana when he was in Manila.
Well I guess that's all for now.
