Dettori, thanks once again for your thorough research.

Are the dates on your second-to-last post birthdates? María Inés was born in New Orleans I see, but I imagine her paternal family came from Spain too.

I don't think José was French, it must be a mistake. Next week I'm going to the church archives in Santiago de Compostela and I'll try and find his birth certificate. His sister Manuela, Elias's mother, was married in Noia in 1855, implying she came from there, and so would her brother I imagine. Plus, de Ben is a fairly common surname in the area and I have her and José's parents as Carlos Mariano de Ben and Cipriana Martínez.

Do you know when José and Inés may have married?

Thanks!

I got the document Dettori, thank you very much!

This is simply wonderful. I'll no doubt surprise my family when I tell them about the de Ben family. Is there any way of finding out about MAría Ines's parents, and when she and José de Ben passed away?

It's so sad to think that Elia's mother Manuela, who died in 1900, probably never saw her son again after he left for America. Maybe her brother visited on one of his trips to Europe (the area of Noya was very commercial and many foreigners settled there, where commerce was king). In fact the surname Ronquete isn't even Spanmish originally, but our common ancestor settled there in the late 18th century.

As for de Ben, it's a Galician surname which means "of Good"; rather nice I think :)

Nothing in Louisiana Marriages 1816-1906 that I can see for him. Birth of first child looks to be 1869.
Sometimes the dates on marriage and immigration can vary - according to the 1900 Census which gives this information. He married in 1874 but the chidren's dates of birth would'nt confirm that.
