I had the good fortune of meeting my grandmother for the first time this past holiday weekend, Antonia Betancourt y Betancourt and her sister, my great aunt. Since I have been on the search these many years for infomation, they were able to provide a substancial amount.
According to them, 2 brothers from France (their great grandparents) arrived in PR and married 2 sisters from Spain. In time the one couple returned to France and eventually passed leaving no heirs. The couple remaining went on to have many descendants. I believe I was told they had 25 children.
The Father of my grandmother was Ramon Betancourt y Betancourt who passed in the early 70's at 96. He had at least one brother and one sister: Maria and Diego. Their ages at death were 102 & 100, although I don't have birth and death dates.
The Mother of my grandmonther was Emilia Betancourt who died in 1962.
I essentially ran out of time to do additional research but, I will be returning soon. It also appears my great aunt has a fair amount of documentation.
Many of the Betancourts from my family currently reside or did reside in Trujillo Alto.
If you have additional information, please share it with me. As I learn more, I will continue to post here.
