    Her maternal grandmother was Carmen Zayas y Garcia, daughter of Margaro Zayas Rosado and Carmen Garcia Otero (daughter of Jose Garcia and Carmen Otero).

    According to census they’re white, but according to draft records Margaro was black.

    She reminds me of Alexa PenaVega. I still find it difficult to tell them apart

    She’s tri racial being dominant European and native. 85 percent. She seems to have had a great, great grandfather or mother which is 1/16, 6 percent. She is 7 percent African. Puerto Rico had many african slaves so perhaps She got her African ancestry there.

      @cwm85 She could have gotten the African admixture from when the black African Moors conquered Spain and ruled over them for hundreds of years before slavery.
