The Rosado family that I am researching is from San Sebastian, Puerto Rico. My Great Grandfather, Agapito Rosado and his wife, Rufina Cruz were from Isabela PR and later settled in San Sebastian. I am sure there are more family members that I am no aware of, however, anyone seeing this info and would like to contribute, please e-mail me. I am always looking to connect with family members and willing to share info with other family members.
I am also researching the Otero family. My grandfather is Eduardo Otero, born on 1865 and died in 1952 in NYC. He had three other children from another marriage (Lafontaine was his first wife last name) The Children were Diojenes, Reneiro, and Lydia Otero- Lafontaine. Reneiro moved to the US in 1918 aboard a ship that arrived in New Orleans, LA. With him was a Ramon Otero according to the passenger list. We believed he went to Plaguemine, LA area to work in farming. According to someone who knew him he later moved to Texas. Never hear from him again. My Grandmother, Eduardo Otero second wife was Carmela Santigo from Morovis, PR. My Grandmother(Otero side of the family) brothers and sisters children most likely live in Morovis PR. If you have any info and would like to share, please e-mail me. On the Rosado side, most of the family are in San Sebastian, NY, Fl, NJ, CA, Utah, TX, just about all over the US
Other interesting information: During the civil war, two "Rosado" surnames came up. Sgt Antoine Rosado and Private Jose Rosado. Both were members of the 5th Regiment European Brigade(Spain) Louisiana. They fought on the Confederate side,however, we have no proof of relationship at this time
In the "Otero" side there were over 20 Otero's who fought on the Union side. Some came from Spain, Italy, Mexico. Other came from New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and southern territories. Of course I cannot confirm at this time that any of the above were family members since the records are not very clear. I hope this info might help other searching for Rosado and Otero.
