Juana Díaz in the early 1800s / Zayas Collazo
Posted by: Das (ID *****7024) Date: May 07, 2013 at 08:41:26

Hi everyone. I wonder if someone might give me some advice about a genealogy question. My third great grandfather, José Ramón Zayas Collazo (10 November 1811 - 26 March 1892), lived in Juana Díaz, Puerto Rico his entire life. His parents were Juan Pío Zayas and María del Carmen Collazo, both born around 1780. While reviewing the parish records of the Church of San Ramón Nonato in Juana Díaz, I found several references to María del Carmen Collazo during this time period as mother and grandmother in birth and confirmation records. The references to her husband however are inconsistent. Sometimes he is identified as Juan Pío Zayas while other times he is identified as Juan de las Nieves Zayas. Later in time, I think my fourth great grandfather was referred to simply as Pío. I don't believe Juana Díaz had a large population in the early 1800s and so I assume these references are to the same man. Unfortunately, I can't find birth or marriage records that resolve this question. Perhaps someone has more information that they can share or a learned guess. Best, Das
