Sir Hermenegildo Garcia of Catalunya
Posted by: Catherine Rivera (ID *****5866) Date: February 22, 2014 at 07:44:00

I am doing genealogy for my husband's family.
The farthest ancestor I can get to is Sir Hermenegildo Garcia from Catalunya, Spain. Possibly born around 1900. He married a native Taino woman named Viviana Martinez and they had two children, Anicasia Garcia Martinez and Juana Garcia Martinez. Anicasia (also called Nicolasa) was born in 1923 in Corozal, PR.

Sir (Spanish Kingdom) Hermengildo Garcia (born in Catalunhia, Spain) married with an unknown woman had X children in Spain, then moved to PR, where using his noble title and his money he bought a large quantity of land, the totality of which is known today as Corozal. The nick names of his children are: Jacinta, Justino, Nicola, and Juana (I); With his second wife, Viviana Martinez (full taino), he had only two children, Juana (II), and Anicasia.

I am looking for any information anyone might have on Hermenegildo and who his parents were. There is mention of ancestry related to King Garcia VI of Navarre.
