My grandfather was Roberto Montero, born in 1895 in Ibagué, Colombia.He was the son of Deogracias Montero and Amelia Varón of Ibague.He left Colombia at age 16 bound for Cuba, but met an American on the way and decided to come to the US instead.He worked in the Nabisco Cookie factory in New York while studying English and linotype operation in night school.He secured employment as a linotype operator and made this his career during his travels around the United States and Mexico.He was an early adherent of the Jehovah's Witness religion and helped start the JW branch in Mexico.In his later years, he settled in San Diego CA and worked for the San Diego Union newspaper.He also taught Spanish at night in adult high schools in the San Diego area, authoring a text "Essential Spanish by the Association of Ideas".As far as I know, he was an only child.
My grandmother, Noemí Enriquez, was born in Cusihuiriachic, Chihuahua, Mexico in 1898.She was a homemaker throughout her life.As a child, she'd learned some of the healing arts of the Tarahumara people from which she descended, and this spurred a lifelong interest in homepathic medicine.People sought her out for her abilities as a healer.Her brothers were Rafael, Abner, and Tony Enriquez of Los Angeles, CA, and Sefora Enriquez of Redlands, CA.
The children of Roberto and Noemí are Maria Luisa Montero of Rosemead CA and Robert Montero of Montebello CA.Maria Luisa, my mother, married Gildardo Enrique Bordier of Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico.Their children were Robert and Daniel Bordier.
Robert Montero married my aunt Hilda, whose maiden name unfortunately I cannot recall.Their children are Arlene, Delia, Richard, and Robert Raymond Montero.
Would be interested in hearing from any relatives or descendants of this branch of the Montero family.
