Juan Villacampa b. April 1893, Paros, Spain

Juan Villacampa b. April 1893, Paros, Spain

Classification: Query
Surnames: Villacampa, Mc Grath
Juan married my great aunt Mamie Mc Grath in New York City on January 21, 1925. In searching for further information on Juan I found his World War I draft registration card of June 1917. He stated he was born in Paros, Spain April 18, 1893 and his mother and father lived there.
I am confused by where he states he was born. In trying to find Paros, Spain on a google map I am told it is in Greece.
Can someone please give me a clue as to where in Spain this place might be?
Thank you for any help offered,
Ro

Hi Ro,

Don't know if you found the answer already, but Juan is from Sada. I have no idea where Paros came from. He listed Sada on his Ellis Island forms, and it is also where he is buried as per his death certificate sent to the US (as a US Citizen who died abroad)

Also, he's my great-grandfather, so I guess we are related!
