Hi Ellen,

THis is the only other information I have on his sister
Juana Manuela Ramos Medina of Lares. I am pleased to inform you that she is well and lives at the home of Mr. Baltazar Marquez and his wife Mrs . Hortensia Carbonell de Marquez. I belive she has lived with them for several years, she is single and to my knowledge her conduct is one of good morals and she is loved by all. As this family travel's frequently to San Juan (???).

It was written by a dective I guess he was looking for his sister. The church in
Lares had no other information on this family. So real brick wall here.

Barbara,
This baptism is so intriguing, since I have Ramos & Hernandez in my line but in Moca. I don't know if someone on the list might have some additional information. There was also the compound surname Hernandez de Medina, which often was shortened to Medina. Of course I found some individuals in Lares who might be connected (the dates fit) in Barrios Lares & Mirasol, but its impossible to say without additional info. Any chance you have another sibling of Manuel Ambrosio's?

Hi Barbara,
Tried searching some sources, but it's really difficult without a paternal surname. Also didn't turn up in the 1910 census, but there are many Ramos in Lares (over 980 come up in the census results). I wonder why he went to SF.
Let me know if you have something more....

Wrong Manual mine died in1923 when my mother was born.
The letter was in my grandmothers trunk, which I inherited when my mother
died in 1989 along with German letters, divorce papers, tons of pictures which
some I know and the others aren't written on.
Manual was a real ladies man and mean to my grandmother.. Nanas father threatened he better never hurt his daughter again. Funny thing my great grandfather is buried on top of Manual...

I am in Pittsburg, CA

Barb, by any chance are you in SF? I live in Oakland.
I will check to see... interesting that he married a German woman, have same situation in my extended family too. Thanks for supplying the info. How did you get the letter from the 1920s? I have some sources I can check to see if I can find anything further on Manuel... There's a Manual Ramos on a ship from Germany to NYC, about the same age, 5'8" 152 lbs, member of the crew of the SS Leviathan, arrived NY May 13 1932 from Bremerhaven. This Manual was born in 1882, but in Spain according to the ship list on NY Passenger Lists. Perhaps an intriguing coincidence. What I find remarkable is that he turns up in SF about the time of WW1.

1910 Census Bo. Poblacion, Lares 4B
Calle Comercio
Baltazal Marquez Y Palan 40 1st marr- 7 yrs- born Spain, arr. 1887
Hortensia Carbonell Y Casabo de Marquez 42- 2nd marriage
Emma Aldruin Y Carbonell 5- sobrina
Pia Lasalle 32- S- criada 1 child
Isabel Lopez 16 - criada

Balthazar worked in a drugstore - appears as Dependiente Drogueria in the 1910 census; by 1920 he had moved with Hortensia to Bo. San Franciso of San Juan on Calle ODonell. Was a merchant.

I can't seem to find them in the 1930 census, so they may have died by then...
More later,
Ellen

I am pleased to inform you that she is well and lives at the home of Mr. Baltazar Marquez and his wife Mrs . Hortensia Carbonell de Marquez. I belive she has lived with them for several years, she is single and to my knowledge her conduct is one of good morals and she is loved by all. As this family travel's frequently to San Juan (???). If you wish to write her you may address your letter to P.O. Box 103, Lares, PR. She was very happy to hear that you were inquiring about her and I believe that anything you can do for your sister, heaven will bless you. I am informed she is well treated at that ho me where she is a servant but you are the judge of that! As a friend I advise you to write her directly as she knows you are making inquiries about her and awaits your letter. With no other news I remain. Juan Blanco
