I saw that you say that part of your family is from Santiago de Veragus. My mother is Crispina Bonilla and her parents (my grandparents were Casimiro and Seferina Munoz Bonilla). Mi tias are Gladys , who lives in the U.S., Meta, and Baldomera (she is deceased). Mi tios are Ysidro, Pedro, and John. Some of my cousins are: Diego, Balalena, Elsa de Maestre. They still live in Panama. Mama has a cousin named Tilla, who was married to a man named Chile, who had two boys and lived in a beautiful mansion overlooking a big lake. I also have my cousin Nicho, (full name Dinisio Johnson). He was an ambassador in several countries. The last time I was in Panama was in 1968, when we spent the summer with mi Abuela and mi Abuelo. Mi Abuela died in 1968 and mi Abuelo died in 1973. Mama died in 1987 in California. She was married to Daniel Cohen, who was working for the U.S. Navy civil service at the Canal Zone in 1948. They moved to the U.S. about a year later. Aunt Gladys married Dewey Butler and moved also to the U.S.

Aunt Paula used to run a little trading store and had several I believe of her grandchildren there. One in particular, Monty, had been kicked by a horse and Mama provided the medicine to put on the wound.

If you are related to me, whose child are you and in what relation to Mama.
