In Reply to: Jean Lafitte 1850 descendants in Cuba or Miami by Gary Fretz of 226

HI! My greatgandmother's name was Amelia Moner Laffite, she was from Holguin not too far from Baracoa, we don't kow much about, when she arrived in Cuba, who were her parents, when or where she passed away, we believe it was in Holguin. I have a picture of her circa 1840 with a very European style, and this is what makes me think that she wasn't born in Cuba. The gown is too Victorian with a very high neck long sleeves a shawl and the fabric is very heavy. She would have melted in the heat of Oriente. Please, contact me. I found one Laffite in Miami, I will contact this person next time Iam there, hopefully in March of this year.

She was married twice, the first time to a Spanish officer, the last name was Vasquez, had a child with him Carmen Vazquez Moner, he was decapitated by the Cubans, second time she married a Cuban journalist, my greatgrandfather, Francisco Alvarez Rodriguez, they had two children, Fidelina Alvarez Moner, my grandmother and a son whose name I think was Rafael Alvarez Moner, he had a daughter name Amada Alvarez.

Any information you have would be appreciated.
