ANTONIO HERNANDEZ AND TRINIDAD MONSISBAT
They had five children – Flora, Emilio, Felipe, Avelino and Pastora
From the information I have I know Flora and Emilio did not have any children, but I can’t tell if either one of them was ever married.
Felipe (my grandfather) married my grandmother Marina Borragero Castillo and they had twelve children – they were very busy:
Trinidad (1900 – Titín)
Ana (1902 – died in infancy)
Emilia (1903 – Mimí)
Santiago (1906 – my father)
Maria Luisa (1909 – Tia Viva)
Ana (1910 – died in infancy)
Irene (1913 – Chunita)
Avelino married Maria Reynoso and they had no children.
Pastora married Jose Santaballa and had one daughter – Flora (Tía Florita).
I don’t have a lot of information about my great grandparents and grandparents, but will share what I know in future blogs. My mother used to have a picture of my paternal grandparents with their first child (Titín) – sadly it was washed out by Hurricane Andrew. I understand there is another copy in existence in Cuba. I hope to be able to get a copy some day. My wonderful aunts and uncles will be featured individually. I treasure their memory and their love.
