I have been researching my family history for some time now. I am now at a point where I think I’ve effectively hit a dead end. I’m posting the following information to hopefully trigger the memory of someone out there. If any of the names below sound familiar, I would love to hear from you. ronaldovega@comcast.net

Catalino Vegas married Ramona Jiménez and lived in the Saltos barrio of Orocovis (then Barros). They had 8 children:
- Dolores Vegas y Jiménez
- Jose Vegas y Jiménez
- Maria Vegas y Jiménez
- Ramon Jose Vegas y Jiménez married Eustaquia Colón y Vazquez
- Ramon “Monche” Juan Vegas y Jiménez married Margarita “Margo” Velez
- Magdalena Vegas y Jiménez
- Aurleriano Vegas y Jiménez
- Aulilia “Lala” Vegas y Jiménez

Some time between 1910 and 1920, the family moved from Orocovis to Jajome Alto barrio of Cayey. My grandfather, “Moche” mentioned that his father may have been from Spain. Very little information survived over the years about him. I would like to know more.
