Hello everyone! I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Rosandra and I am married to a descendant of Asturians. I have started working on his family tree again, so I thought I'd join in hopes of finding out some more information--or even long lost relatives! Very Happy

As for some family background, my husband's paternal grandparents were Felix Montequin Crespo and Consuelo Andrea Soria Cordova. Felix emmigrated from Spain to Cuba in the late 1890's. Consuelo was born and raised in Cuba.

Together they had 4 sons (Andres, Jose Tirso, Pedro & Domingo) and 1 daughter (Maria Concepcion). All members of these two generations have passed on.

I look forward to discussing Montequin heritage and (hopefully) finding connections with other Montequins through our trees.

He was married at least twice, first to Evarista Leon Hernandez, with whom he had two girls, Soledad and Leonor. Later, he married Consuelo Andrea Soria Cordova and together they had 4 sons (Andres, Jose Tirso, Pedro & Domingo) and 1 daughter (Maria Concepcion). Felix passed away in Cuba between 1921 and 1926.
