My name is Rosa Maria Garayua, I am 38 yrs old, live in NY and I'm curious to know if I have any other family other than my immediate family. The Garayua name is very unique and up until recently, I thought my family was the only Garayua family around. I decided to google my name one day and realized that there are many Garayua's. I'm just curious to know if any are related to me. My father's name is Miguel Angel Garayua and my grandfather was Angel Alfonso Garayua. Any information will be appreciated. Thank you.

My Uncle was also named Angel Alfonso Garayua. I believe he fought on the American side in World War II. He lived in Yonkers in the 1970's. I do not know who his children are because he always came to visit my mother, his little sister, by himself in Ponce, Puerto Rico. His only brother was Miguel Garayua, also of Ponce, Puerto Rico who died in 1968 or 1969.

Hi, My name is Vivianne Marien Garayua and I live in Arizona but was born in PR. My mother's name is Sara Esther Garayua and her father's name was Gustavo Garayua. Gustavo had a brother named Miguel Angel Garayua and other sibblings;Bartolo, Rosa Amelia or Rosaura(lived in Seattle,WA) Juan, Ricardo,Ramona and I don't know any other but they were living in Ponce and Sabana Grande. The two I met were my grandfather and his sister Rosa Amelia or Rosaura. Both were red heads and my grandfather's sister had an air of refinement for which she was known for. Not implying snobbish but she liked good quality things, dressed impp
ecable and spoke and wrote English. She was married to an officer in the navy and had green eyes. I enjoyed her company and she reminded me of some aristocratic woman. My mother says that her and her siblings all took music lessons and could play a musical instrument or used to. Education was very important to the family and all the kids had a good education. Gustavo married Herminia Torres who was very industrious and well bred but of humble origin. Her other last name was Sepulveda and my grandfather's other last name was Velez. They had nieces who's name were Billie Williams Garayua and Cielo.
