Ronquete family in Louisiana
« on: Saturday 29 May 10 23:38 BST (UK) »
Barely an hour ago I've just found out that a distant relative of mine emigrated to America. I thought it would have been Latin America, as most Spaniards in the 19th cebntury went to Spanish-speaking countries. However, my great-grandfather's cousin Elias Ronquete Ben (b. 1856 in Noia [or Noya], Spain) emigrated to New Orleans, Louisiana.

I had no idea about this bit of my family. I've found a couple of webpages where it says he married a woman called Virginia Ackerman (I suppose of German origin), and had four children called Elías (1893-1972), Leo (b. 1894), Ramon (1896-1971) and Genevieve Cramer (1903-1992). I'd love to know more about them, if they married and had children. I'd also love to know if anyone can have a look at Elias Sr. and see if he's on any passenger list and if he was traveling withy anyone, if indeed it's the Elias in my family (just to confirm) and any other details I might learn about him.

Thanks a lot for your help!
