DEAR DEB
MY GUESS IS THAT YOUR GREAT-GRANDMOTHERS NAME WAS
CLARA DETRES PONCE DE TORO. IF THAT WAS THE CASE SHE WAS ALSO MY GREAT-GREAT-GRAND AUNT WHOSE FATHER MIGRATED TO PUERTO RICO FROM HAITI. SO IT APPEARS YOUR FRIENDS WERE RIGHT. LAST WEEK I TOOK A TRIP TO N.Y.C FROM RICHMOND VA. AND I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT THE ARCHIVES (N.A.R.A.) WHERE I WAS ABLE TO ACCESS THIS INFORMATION. CLARA DETRES WAS BORN IN 1850 IN
RIO CANAS,LAS MARIAS PR. HER BROTHERS WERE MAXIMINO AND
LORENZO (MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDFATHER). THEIR FATHER WAS
JEAN JOSEPH DETRES.
