    Teresio’s full name is Teresio Villa y Vivares (or Teresio Vivares Villa in Filipino).

    Also, I express my condolences for the death of her father last week.

  2. Manila says:

    Typo for “Suico”, not “Sucio”

  3. Manila says:

    I have found the church copy of Magdaleno and Luisa’s marriage record – https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSMJ-43YS-6

    The same marriage record I previously found is the civil copy.

    So, correction for Magdaleno’s mother: Micaela Durano, not Niayla Durano; and for Luisa’s father: Simplicio Nocos, not Felicio Nocos

    Natividad’s middle name is Suico, and was the daughter of Teresio Villa and Florencia Suico. The family name “Suico” is of Chinese origin.

  5. Manila says:

    Correction for her ethnicity: it should be 68.75% Filipino (Cebuano) and 6.25% unknown because her maternal great-grandfather was illegitimate.
