| ||Notes for Rodrigues Balentina Belasques:|
NAMES:All information from PAF #138946, testimony in court case: Don
Miguel MATEU goes to court to prevent his son from marrying Francisca
Xaviera ALCANTARA, legitimate daughterof Gregorio ALCANTARA and
Valentina VELASQUEZ, because of differences of race and social
standing:Balentina es "mulata notoria, sus hermanas Ramona y Josefa
estn casadas con los grifos Juan Manuel de SANTIAGO y Luis ROMERO,
como otra, Gregoria, viuda de Eduardo Collazo."This testimony also
calls Gregorio ALCANTARA"un blanco europeo."
NOTE TO THIS TESTIMONY: this is a little confusing; at first I thought
this meant that Ramona, Josefa and Gregoria were sisters to Valentina;
but it actually means that Ramona, Josefa and Gregoria are sisters to
Francisca, and all four are daughters of Gregorio and Balentina.
