Mario’s maternal grandfather was Victoriano Benítez Vera (the son of parents surnamed Benítez and Vera).
Mario’s maternal grandmother was Florentina Gilberta Perrier Galy (the daughter of Léopold Charles Louis Elie Perrier and Marie Marguerite Léonie Galy). Léopoldo was a French military officer, from Saint-Omer, Pas-de-Calais, and was the son of François Victor Perrier and Zélie Élisabeth Charlotte Hodebourg des Brosses, who was of French-Martiniquais, Breton, and Belgian (Flemish) descent.
