The family also produced the lady writer Leona Florentino.

    Hi, my family originally is from Sarrat, Ilocos Norte but we are here now in Surigao City after our great grandfather migrated here during the American period. I just want to ask help if you can trace back my origins. My great great grandfather is Marciano Farolan who is married to Escolastica Racela. We dont know any more details about their families there in Ilocos but we really wanted to see traces of our clan and who were those still living in Ilocos. Your help will be mostly appreciated. tnx. Marciano and Escolastica were the parents of Modesto Farolan the father of Comm. Ramon J. Farolan.

    DONATO. The family fortune was founded by an industrious Chinese “panadero” baker, Don Ah Toh, from where the present family surname was derived.

    The origin of the Donato name is fascinating. We are part of the Vigan- Donato clan and this interpretation was surfaced with my family circles.
    Can anyone point me to a resource to which this fact came from- Iwould like to dig more on the family history

    To Carl Vincent:

    Hi, I see you’re a Querubin from Caoayan and thought you might have information about my great-grandmother. Tomasa Querubin, the sister of Silvestre Querubin who was a professor at UE and PSBA. She ended up marrying an Adoja and her second son was my grandfather. I already grew up in Manila so I didn’t really get to know the Querubin side of the family, but my mother grew up in Caoayan with her Querubin cousins. My relatives still live there in Caoayan, and one of my aunts is married to a Quitoriano. I’m trying to trace back whatever I can because it fascinates me. :) Thanks!

    One great Ilokano whose lineage also originated in Vigan. Dr. Godofredo Sebastian Reyes, renowned surgeon, WWII Veteran, former governor, congressman, and Concon Delegate in 1972. He was Poet Laureate of Ilocandia. It must be noted that the mother of Dr. Reyes is Ercarnacion Sebastian from Vigan. The late Joseling Singson’s mother is a Sebastian.

    Good Day. There are no much talk about “Villanueva” I’ve learned from my grand-father Reynaldo Roni Villanueva that some of his family resides in vigan or should I say that he came from there, he left vigan and came to pangasinan and married Estelita Garcia de Vera. I really want to gather much information about our lineage however I found it hard due to millions of ” Villanueva’s”. I hope I can find to where or whom we directly came. If you can help me please I need info badly. Thanks alot any info long as you strongly believed can help is accepted. God Bless.

    Excerpts of an interview of Jose Maria Sison by Wilson Lee FLores

    (WLF) Who were your parents, their professions or backgrounds? I read you’re from an Ilocano landlord family?

    (JMS)My father was a landlord who was one of the main heirs of the Serrano, Soller and Sison estates in the Ilocos. He got enough rent from tenants and could sell pieces of land to be able to send his seven children to expensive Catholic schools in Manila and further on to American universities for postgraduate studies. I was the only one who did not go to the US.

    (WLF)Any of your ancestors involved in politics before?

    (JMS)In his twenties, my grandfather Don Gorgonio Sison was the last gobernadorcillo of Cabugao, Ilocos Sur under the Spanish colonial regime, the first municipal president of the Philippine revolutionary government and the first mayor under the US colonial regime. The first governor of Ilocos Sur, Don Mena Crisologo, was a grand uncle of mine. There was a time when two uncles of mine, Jesus Serrano and Sixto Brillantes, were the congressmen of the two districts of the province.

    But our Sison relatives in Pangasinan were far more awesome. Six became governors of the province, starting with Don Rafael Sison at the start of the US colonial period. Several became senators and assemblymen or congressmen. Quite a number became cabinet secretaries. The most notable was Teofilo Sison, who was the first secretary of national defense and also became secretary of justice and executive secretary. He was close enough to Quezon to move from one cabinet position to another.

    (WLF)Your hometown of Cabugao in Ilocos Sur is facing the sea, any recollections of your childhood years there?

    (JMS)The town center or poblacion of Cabugao is a few kilometers away from the seaside barrios of Dardarat, Salomague, Daclapan, Salapasap and Pug-os. We owned land in all these barrios. My mother loved to go to tne beaches for picnics during summer. We also enjoyed going to the barrios east of the town, especially Caellayan where there were orchards of mangoes, santol and duhat.

    (WLF)I read that your family is connected to or maybe related to Ilocos Sur political clans like the Crisologos and the Singsons?

    (JMS)My extended family of Azcuetas, Sollers, Serranos and Sisons intermarried several times with the Florentinos, Crisologos and Singsons of Vigan since the 19th century. Several uncles, first and second cousins of my father were the latest to marry into these Vigan families.

    (WLF)Your impression of Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson?

    (JMS)Chavit is a good guy and loyal friend if you are friends with him. He and I have mutual relatives. He and my younger brother were classmates and friends.

    (WLF)Is it true you first got interested in leftist revolution from your childhood barber telling you about the Hukbalahap uprising?

    (JMS)Yes, I had a Capampangan barber who talked a lot about the Huks while cutting my hair. But I learned about the Huks earlier from my Capampangan mother whose family came from Mexico, Pampanga. When I was a boy, I heard her telling my father that a Laxamana landlord relative of ours was killed probably by a poor relative who was a Huk.

    The Vigan house described under #97, one of the earliest surviving house in Vigan (circa 1780s), is currently owned by Benjo Versoza, who is also a descendant of the Villanuevas. It is in this house that the 14 canvasses of the Basi Revolt displayed at the Burgos Museum was painted by Don Esteban Pichay Villanueva. My maternal great grandmother is Irinea Pablo Nolasco-Manzano – hija de Don Marcos Nolasco y Margarita Pablo, Abuelos paternos – Don Nicolas Nolasco y Doña Eustaquia Florendo, Abuelos maternos – Don Ignacio Pablo (cabeza de Barangay, 1860s) y Doña Silvestra Villanueva.

    I would like to correct the info here that Dr. Jose Rizal’s maternal grandmother was a Florentino. According to Phil. Star columnist Barbara Gonzales, a great grandniece of our hero, his maternal grandfather, Don Alberto Alonso, did not have any offspring with his wedded wife, a Florentino of Vigan. He lived with Brigida Quintos and Teodora Alonso was one of their children. From the Last Will of her father Manuel Facundo Quintos, a lawyer, Brigida’s grandfather was Manuel Quintos, Sr., of Lingayen, Pangasinan. He was a gobernadorcillo of the Gremio de Mestizos in that town.
