Thank you for your reply. Your post has been very informative. I'm quite curious about this language that you speak of. My sister has been doing the greatest deal of research on our family, and she has provided me with as much information as she's gathered. I've invited her to reply to this post in kind.

It is very difficult to trace the movements of my father's family, but I know that my grandfather may have been from Cayey.

Unfortunately, his children were put up for adoption shortly after the death of our grandmother. My father's brothers were scattered throughout the island, and my father grew up in Salinas with his brother Nelson. Here is a list of his brothers and sisters that we know:

Modesto Beltran: This is my great grandfather
Natalio Beltran: This is my grandfather and below are all his brothers and
sisters
Viginio Beltran (who was killed in california the oldest) Angelo Beltran
Felix Beltran
Miguel Beltran (his nickname in salinas is chalupin)
Genio Beltran
Ramonita Beltran
Iris Beltran
Nelson Beltran
Lucia Beltran
Juan Beltran (my father, he's the youngest)

Its told in town that Modesto Beltran and Zoila Beltran where first from Cayey then later moved to salinas to work on Don Ramon Gonzalez, Hernandez land in Salinas
Natalio Beltran was married to Ramonita Gonzalez or Hernandez?

A few weeks ago, by pure chance I ran into what could perhaps be another family member. Her name is Damaris Beltran. Her father's name is Virginio, but they call him Gino, and he's from Caguas. She tells me she has family in Ponce, as well as Cayey, where I know I have several family members myself.

This is what I've learned thus far. Once again, thank you in kind for your reply. Every effort goes a long way towards finally putting together the mysteries of our past.....
