Cuatro Hijos

September 20, 2008

Actual painting of the Cuatro Hijos

For more than a year now I’ve been sifting through old Spanish passenger lists looking to see if I could track down more information about my great great grandfather’s arrival to the New World (i.e. Cuba) and I’ve finally found his name, Jose Antonio Hernandez Rodriguez, on a schooner traveling from Las Palmas, Canary Islands to Havana, Cuba in 1850. The ship was called Cuatro Hijos (Four Sons). The name, date, and locations all line up with the genealogical records kept by my family and it feels pretty cool to have added a bit to the record.

I’ve been corresponding with some genealogical researchers in the Canary Islands to see if I can trace my family further back than 5 generations and I’ll post anything new that turns up.
