Ventura Dabisa de Otiro
Posted by: Angie Davis (ID *****1614) Date: April 09, 2004 at 20:37:36

I, and other family members have tried for some time to find out about my grandfather's family history. He apparently left Madrid Spain and came here to Louisiana, where he was married and had children. My father and all relatives on that side of the family have been deceased for some time. The trouble comes as we know they would come to the states and change their name. Somehow my brother had the information that my grandfather's name was Ventura Dabisa de Otiro, as they took their mother's maiden name as their last name. When he came to the states, he was called Benjamin Davis. I'm not sure of a date or year of birth..I would suppose the late 1800s-early 1900s.

We have never been able to find out how to get information like this from Spain. We do believe that he left family there.
Can anyone help me?
