Surnames: Quintero,Romeria
my mothers name was Alice Dorthy Quintero-she was the 2nd child born to Angel [Ingle} Quintero and Margaretta Abson;Angel was born Aug. 1, 1892 in San Diego, Calif where he left home in his teens to live with and be an apprentice with a butcher.angels parents [as far as we know] were Angel R. Quintero [my grandpas middle name was Peter] and Maria Romeria--Maria was from Arizona and the story goes that she and her little brother were away from the homestead when it caught fire killing the family--Maria and her brother were found and adopted them thus bringing them to Calif.
Angel R. Quintero was from San Diego, Calif [we think]
Angel P. Quintero had a horse and wagon with which he would go to the towns selling the meat he had butchered. Later in life we'd worked at the Piggley Wiggley Market as a butcher with his daughter-my mother-when i was little [i am 61 y.o. now]. He had brothers named Joseph [who married Louise/Esther Goldberg in 1920-he was 24/she was 25] Leonard [who married Hallie Hanes in 1020-he was 21/she was 18] and a sister named Zola [ who married fred Ricard in 1914-she was 17/he was 20].there was also an "uncle Jack" who was married-a Jack jr.-Louis Quintero []who was an engineer] and married to Gertrude Cook [who was a nurse]-Richard Quintero-Ascension [who was a chauffer] married to Mary Clayton {who was a presser/pressor]-Joseph Quinteros occupation was painter while his wife Louise/Esther was a waitress- he was also married to/living with Rachel Oliver who died of t.b.-my moms cousins were Paul I. Quintero and Rita Quintero who worked at the shopping center in National City, Calif.;Zola had a daughter that her mother raised named Edna Ricard-another daughter named Merie Mayne-and a son nam,ed Albert Bouchere-there are also the names Joseph Leonard Quintero
Mary Louise Quintero
Charles Richard Quintero
Robert-Billy-Quintero
and Doloris Quintero [occupation auto painter]
this info comes from a ledger book that my grandma Margaretta Quintero had pased to her daughter. Also, my greatgrandfather Angle R. Quintero had committed siucide by jumping off the roof of a San Diego hsspital/nursing home and this article was written up in the S. D. newspaper according to my cousin Sandy.My aunt {Angels' daughter} said the two brothers didnt look "Mexican"- they were "tall with light brown hair and green eyes".
This is all the information that I have on my grandpa-if any one else has anything else to offer please email me ---thanks in advance ---Ron
