Micaela Escobar Diaz is wife of Ramon O'Neill Rivera, born Jan. 20, 1873. (WW 1 registration card).In 1910 he & Micaela are in Santurce, San Juan. He is a police officer. they state they are married 10 yrs, & had 4 children, 4 still living. The children listed are: (these are siblings of Manuel, & Manuel) Carmen O'Neill age 7 / Eladia age 5 / Ramon age 3 / and Manuel age 1. I believe these are your people. Let me know, and I'll see if I can find them in 1920 & 1930 census.

Thank you. Yes this was my great grandfather. I looked at the census as I was trying to find His father. I was told as a child that the O'Neill's, while the last name is Irish, one of three brothers came to Puerto Rico Via Spain. SO, I am trying to find out the name of of great grandfathers parents so I can see if can follow that line back. Thank you for your help.

Here's the rest of the info: Looks like Micaela died?, and he remarried? In 1920 Ramon is with his kids: Carmen age 16, Eladia age 14, Ramon age 13, Manuel age 11, Maria Pilar age 8, Carmen age 3. His wife is listed as Ramona Rodriguez Escobar age 23. In 1930 Ramon is listed with wife Angeles Marrero age 33. They are with Carmen age 25, Josefina E. (Eladia?) age 24,Ramon age 23, Maria Pilar age 19, & Carmen Mercedes age 13. Also in that census in San Juan as well is Manuel age 22, with his wife Mercedes Iglesias age 18 and their son Carlos Manuel age 1 mo. Do you know what pueblo Ramon was born in? Maybe I can help.

This may be a lead: in the book "Catalogo de Extranjeros" by Estela Cifre de Loubriel, there is a "Jaime O'Neill" listed, originally from Ireland, who came under the Cedula de Gracia, who obtained residency in July 1816. No other info.I would try to get the Mormon film for birth records for where Manuel was born (San Juan?), for that timeftrame 1909?. If you can get that film, Manuel's paternal & maternal grandparents should be listed. That way you would have the names of Ramon's parents. It's a gamble because babies weren't always registered as soon as they were born, sometimes it happened years later. Also, one of his siblings might be on the film, if Manuel is not. Let me know if you need anything else. If you find out the town Ramon was from, I'll see what I can dig up as far as his parents go.

Tully O'neill O'kelly married Catalina O'keffe Velez of St. Nevits Island May 1,1777 in St. Croix. Parents of Arturo O'neill O'keffe b. 1783 died Sept 7,1832 and Tulio O'neill O'keffe b. Sept 29, 1784 both born in the Island of St. Croix (St. Cruz). Gen. Tulio O'neill O'keffe married Manuela de Castillahis brother Liet. Coronel Arturo O'neill O'keffe married Joana Chabert Heyliger April 19,1802. ( Coronel of Infantry in Puerto Rico, Knight of the royal order of King Carlos the third.) Parents of Gonzalo O'neill Chabert b. Dec. 20,1829 Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico; Tulio Luis O'neill Chabert b. July 17, 1808 St. Croix; Arturo O'neill Chabert b. August 25,1820 Loyza, Puerto Rico. Arturo O'neill Chabert married Catalina Andino Vizcarrondo parents of Don Arturo Eustasio O'neill Andino b. March 29,1857 San Juan, Puerto Rico. These men descent from the O'Neills of the Fews current holders of the title of O'Neill Mor but all O'Neills of Puerto rico are related until people understand that y-Dna samples are needed from any male O'neill of Puerto Rico. I 've been researching my ancestor for many years. with out the help of anyone in Puerto Rico or any O'Neills of Puerto Rico and i have tried countless times to reach and no one replies! No one can claim to be a descendant until their genealogy records and Y-Dna match. I have my genealogy records and my DNA taken and it's on the O'Neill YDNA project... Now if anyone is really serious about their O'Neills ancestors they can contact me at redhandking@hotmail.com
