My name is Luis D'Avila .... I was born Luis Alfredo Davila Gonzalez .... My mother was from Puerto Rico and although I know she spent some time in Dorado, I believe she was born in Loiza .... my grandmother, Valentina Sanchez Davila, her mother lived for a long time in Hato Rey ... Her father, my grandfather whom I've never met (he passed away some 5 years ago now) .... was named Manuel Davila and worked in construction for most of his life .... at one point he owned or managed a construction team ...
my mother had at least 5 siblings .... but if I'm not mistaken only the last three are actually Davila's ... those would be: Augustine Sanchez Davila - d. 1999 - Benjamin (Benny or more commonly Titi) Sanchez Davila and my mother the youngest of the group Maria Mercedes Davila .... Her other brother and sisters, Monce (sp?), Carmen and William are older from a previous marriage that Valentina had prior to meeting Manuel ... Incidentally, the name Benny or Benjamin appears a lot in my mother's family.
Your posting comes closest to my maternal family point of origin so I am eager to learn more from you about your family ....
I hope that you r'cv this and are willing to reply ....
