  1. Wow! You look a LOT like your great grandmother! What a beautiful post. Good job restoring the photos! This is amazing information that you were able to dig up! It’s such a detailed and vivid story. Wow. What an adventurous guy your great grandfather was. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thanks for reading Amanda. My father sent the link to this post out to the family. So perhaps some other details will get coaxed out of the memory banks. I’m especially interested in knowing whether the visit to “Nassau” is the one in the South Pacific. We’ll see…

  2. Efectivamente, esta historia es tal como se ha contado, las Islas Nassau al Sur, Elena mi abuela se quedo sola desamparada con siete hijos pequeños, pero fue una mujer valiente y no se doblegó ante nadie, sus hijos mas mayores , entre ellos Eva, Blanca y Enriqueta mi madre, empezaron a trabajar en tareas domésticas para ayudar a su , e incluso el abogado de la familia le pidió matrimonio, cosa que ella se negó, las relaciones con la madre de Enrique se rompieron y es mas podían haber ayudado a Elena y ella no quiso, la madre de Enrique se volvió a casar y en efecto tuvo diez hijas hembras, las cuales disfrutaron de aquel patrimonio que Elena no quiso aceptar, la misma no se casó nunca mas,fue una gran mujer con mucho orgullo y dignidad

  3. the principal subject of investigation, it’s true. the great grandfather concerning to my wife is real, so real, like a dream…. ENRIQUE has left from Gibara’s port for about 1924 or 26 in the last century… a terrible hurricane… probably was the principal cause of the drawn of “Pinta azul” name of the ship involucrated in the travesy.. there were many stories about… but xio has published the real one..congratulations xio…twice.. one for restoring this old story… and the other one for restoring the original photo… which was preserved like a great treasure…until the next..
