My mysterious Correa side

on

I’ve been analyzing the family tree matches that MyHeritage.com presents to me. One side that has been difficult to locate is one of my mothers parents. Correa I couldn’t find a link for a bit but then I ran across Captain Correa.

So I’ve always heard about Arecibo and that we grew up from there. It is a name that if someone were to ask what part of the four parts of Puerto Rico I am from. I would always say Arecibo because it was the first remembered name that my family members mentioned growing up. I’ve read (“Captain Correa: The Guardian of Arecibo (the Caribbean Chronicles Book 2) – Kindle Edition by González Rivera, Roberto. Literature & Fiction Kindle EBooks @ Amazon.com.”) but the first version and I learned that he loved his family just as much as I love my family. I haven’t read the other two yet but I definitely plan on it. Reading this I related to Estefanía, and how she helped her children with anxieties of the unknown. She was scared of getting attacked by a competitor of Arecibo while I’ve been scared of how crazy the news is. Now, I don’t even try to look at it anymore. Once in a while I’ll see a pop up of current news but every time I open it it seems sad.

I felt bad for a woman who lost her love for I could not image the amount of agony that would cause my heart. There were multiple love stories and I’m a sucker for love stories and movies. I even love seeing others in love and happy. I love that they fight just like my husband and I fight about simple things. When I meet others I always try to understand and if they are in a toxic relationship I hope I can help as I relate from before I married my dream come true man.

What I found interesting is that the ancestor with surname Correa also had another name Serrano as their last name. Now it sometimes makes it a bit of a task going farther back because of past generations using two last names. So I’m in the process of of figuring out how Captain Correa’s aid Nicolás Serrano are related.

I also found a google map location of a momentum dedicated to Captain Correa in Arecibo. High was a fighter in hopes for a better future.

I found this location by looking through the very helpful Ancestry.com hints. They suggested that I look at the satellite view of where this ancestor was from and bam I saw this. I smiled and was like okay something I can visit hopefully in the future when finished with college. I was amazed by how inspirational he was to Arecibo. A town I have always heard of but never knew much of.
