    My grandfather, Emilio Alquiroz Ramos, born 1882, a katipunero and a musikong bumbong is from Tonsuya, Malabon. I do not know of his siblings or other relatives, but I am aware that he and his children (Sozimo, Gangerico, Emiliano, and others) migrated to Baguio before the Second World War where they initially served as plumbers and construction workers with the Americans.

    Searching the web for “musikong bumbong” this is what I found:

    D’ Original Malabon Musikong Bumbong started as a plain “Banda de Boca” (meaning “bibig “or mouth) in the 1890’s. Music or sound was produced by one’s voice controlled with a piece of leaf or paper placed between the lips.

    In 1896, the band was organized at Barrio Tonsuya in Malabon, Rizal (now Malabon City) by Felix Ramos, the founder and inventor of the bamboo instruments and leader, Juan De Silva, Gregorio Kilala, Anacleto Topacio, Tomas Gonzales and Delfin Borromeo. Musikong Bumbong took on its name because of the passion for music by its founder and members and the inspiration that they got from the Filipino ethnic instruments like the bamboo flute of the Igorots. From there, they invented their own bamboo musical instruments.

    Originally consisting of 28 members, the founder and the first player were all Katipuneros who used their unique talents to entertain their comrades and enliven their musical activities.

    During the early part of the American occupation, the group was temporarily disbanded. In 1921, under the leadership of Marcelo De Silva, the group was again reorganized and was renamed “Banda Filipina”. It was then and still continuous to be a “family affair”. Its members being all related with each other. It was also by this time that they had female members, but it was short lived because of the prevalence of courtship amongst its members.

    The bamboo instruments also deteriorated because of the natural process of wood drying and termites (bukbok) infestation. Cracks also developed when the instruments were accidentally dropped or mishandled. It was Magno Ramos, the son of Felix Ramos, the founder and inventor of the bamboo instruments who took on the role of repairman and maintainer of the bamboo instruments.

    Because of the love and passion of the members for their art, some members who died were buried in their Musikong Bumbong uniform together with their instruments.

    A local composition entitles “Veteranos dela Revolucion” became the band’s favorite piece and was later adopted as their theme song.

    Even during the war years, the band grew in prominence. In time, Banda Filipina gathered numerous laurels to its credit. A few years before the outbreak of the World War II, during the Quezon Regime, the group was awarded a Certificate of Honor during an Independence Day Parade at the Luneta and since then, they were regularly hired to perform at barrio fiestas and Santacruzan celebrations.

    From 1985-1992, the band’s name was changed to St.Anthony Original Bamboo Band in honor of Patron Saint San Antonio de Padua. In 1993 to 2007, the band was again renamed Banda Filipina due to the request of the old members and relatives. The later generation’s strong love for music and their great appreciation of their unique gift and talent strengthened their resolve to maintain the legacy left behind by their forbears.

    The band, now renamed “Musikawayan” is under the leadership of P/Lt. Col. Gilbert M. Ramos, a 4th generation descendant of the band’s illustrious founder and inventor of the bamboo musical instruments and leader. He is also the current Conductor and Music Director of the group. A graduate of Bachelor of Music major in Conducting at the University of Santo Tomas Conservatory of Music, he is the only descendant of the original founder who made a career and profession in this unique musical legacy and heritage.

    Hi Toto: This blog has a lot of promise .., but could be more. I may be able to assist you’re interested.

    To introduce myself, George “Jorge” Manapat Siasoco, My father is Dr. Ruben Jorge Eustaquio Siasoco — My father was third in a line of physicians/specialists who also married a my grandmother a pharmacist who came from a middle-class family based in San Juan then an exurb of Manilia. We are related by marriage of his brother, Angel Eustaquio Siasoco, to Felicidad Ejercito the Ejercitos of San Juan, from which Joseph Estrada arose. On my mother’s side are a string of governadorcillos and cabezas de baranggay named Manapat who due to position and leadership and patronage system prevalent even today, earned a lot of wealth in land, money, assets etc. (probably out of hard work but also as they grew richer became more entrenched in a system of patronage and privilege that rewarded position/names/titles than actual ability) during the Spanish era. The only son, my great grandfather Don Jose “Pepe” Manapat y Sevilla of Malabon, inherited all the land his mighty ancestors had possessed all over the Philippines from Batanes to Sulu and of course holdings in Europe and some in the USA. He was a Spanish mestizo educated at the Ateneo, who grew to hate the Spaniards (peninsulares) after he was forced to witness the unjust shooting of Jose Rizal at Bagumbayan. He swore never to teach his children that “awful language” (though he did wrote to his cousins fondly and eloquently in it throughout his life) — and saw the future in America and the UK. As such, he went to school in London where he met my great grandmother, whom he fell in love and married and took back to the Philippines after a long journey fraught with racism and mistrust of anyone who was not completely “white”.The journey back is worthy of a novel in itself — when miscegenation laws in the US — a new colonizer — in 1902 was still trying to figure out what rules to apply to their Filipino subjects who mixed races more than they did. Eventually my great grandfather got home and had three children by his British wife before she sadly expired from giving birth probably affected as well by heat, insects and disease — though she was the queen of all my great grandfather possessed. My grandfather, Windsor Manapat Siasoco, had two female siblings both younger. As the “heir” he was expected to take over the haciendas — a task he did not wish to do given how spoiled he was, with no mother to take care of him. He did not wish to apply himself to anything and soon became a worthless idiot who smoked, drank, did all sorts of nastiness that are not worth mentioning — that plot line is quite tired., In any case,my grand mother was a pure Ilocana that he met at a ticket office (she said) of a bar in the escolta district … and after he got her pregnant, had to marry her even though he was not in agreement with it. Regardless they had 7 live children altogether before his ways disgusted my grandmother as to have her flee that family for her nothern Luzon farming class relatives. My great grandfather remarried a pure Filipina and had 7 children from that side after being a widower. My grandftather was still the favored son and asked for his inheritance when he realized his father was very worried about the Huk/CPP as well as the MNLF/MILF movements from after World War 2 to the 70’s and how that would affect the haciendas. He divided his holdings among all his children, with a majority part to my grandfather — who took no time to squander it in debts, horse racing, alcohol. and all sorts of vices.When my mother was growing up luckily her aunt who was childless with her husband, “adopted” her — as it was traditional in those days for children to be taken care of by better off relatives without cause.My mother showing intelligence and hard work and skills from an early age even though she went to public schools in the proviince of Tarlac wanted to be a doctor. However, back in the day, my great grandfather had to bless this decision — and pay for her tuition. He decided that being a doctor was not for women, so she should be a nurse instead. To which she obliged. At University of the East, she met my father – a graduate of the Ateneo de Manila – when it was still in Padre Faura after the ateneo in Intramuros burnt down. There is a longer story but they fell in love and were married at San Nicolas Church in Manila and all my parents remember were that the wedding list was never that big — it seemed word got around of Ruben and Lina Siasoco getting married and friends and friedns of friends and even their relatives came to the Aristrocrat for the recetion for free food. and drinks. They had not a single moment together they said. Not one enjoyable moment as a couple due to family and friends obligations. It should be the end there … but actually there is more. If you want to hear then I guess just let me know.

    I saw this site accidentally. I am doing my family tree. My paternal grandmother came from Malabon. Her name was Emilia Tiangco-married to Cipriano G. David from San Fernando Pampaga. Her parents were Pablo Tiangaco and Luisa Eusebio. I wonder if Linda Marcelo Tiangco, mother of Congressman Toby Tiangco is related to her.

    Hi Cian Munar. My grandfather, Conrado M. Lazaro told me that ask the Lazaros in Malabon are related to each other. His grandfather is Pedro Lazaro (married to Felisa Roque) and he had a brother named Pedro Lazaro as well. Do you know of any of this?

  10. Cian Munar said,

    November 6, 2014 at 8:51 am

    My mother’s family were the Lazaros; her sister Leonora married Tomas Bautista; they lived at 14 Don Basilio Blvd. I grew up in California but visited there. I am trying to find it on Google satellite map. Could someone advise the cross street near 14 Don Basilio Blvd? Also, my first cousin (Auntie Onor /Leonora’s) son is named Don Basilio Jr. Their other son is Marcelo; sisters are Aggie, Teresa, Felicidad. My father Feliciano from San Fernando La Union married my mom Catalina Lazaro, Auntie Onor’s sister. I had memories in Malabon / PI that will last a lifetime … God blessed me with wonderful family on both sides!

Saw him often watering his orchids!!. Played and went to school with some of his grandchildren,Ritchie, Butch and Pinky.”Tita Ellen” sent paperdolls from the US.Went to school with Miguelita Santos and Sarah Salao at St.James Academy(San Bartolome)….I forwarded this discovery to my classmate and good friend Eva de Jesus because I think Maria Christina is related to LIzzie Bautista, the daughter of Tommy Bautista,son of “Dna.Tuding” Bautista.

    @Maria Christina Castanares – you are definitely related to Basilio Bautista III (my classmate in St. James, Malabon). We call each other ‘Insan’ (coming from the same Pascual heritage). I was born in Navotas. I can link you up with Chiki (Basilio Bautista III) if you like. He still lives in their ancestral home in Malabon. I just met with him last June in Manila. – Toti Pascual (Porter Ranch, CA)

Then in August 24, 1896 when Bonifacio formed his War Cabinet, Gregorio along with Ramon Bernardo and Vicente Fernandez were appointed Division Generals; tasked with strategic planning for the occupation of Manila..Gregorio Coronel is our great grandfather.

Her spouse was my father’s grandfather because my father use to call Ms. Lourdes “Lola Ondes”. My father used to work on Balintawak Saving’s that is owned by Ms. Lourdes descendant.
    The real reason why I found this site because I’m searching for my Santos roots. My mothers grandparents was Andres Santos and Felisa Bonzon.

    may i add that Felipe del Rosario, son of Marceliana Andres ( wife of Florentino del Rosario and sister of Juliana Andres and first cousin of Pascuala Andres ) is Lola Loleng’s second cousin and Lola Ondes’ first cousin.
    The maiden name of Lola Loleng is Dolores Andres Celestino and that of Lola Ondes is Lourdes Andres Santos.

    moreover, Julian Ochoa Andres 1843 – 1902, ( eldest son of Hilarion Andres and Leogarda Ochoa ) married Anselma Vasquez and their children are as follows:
    1. Pascuala
    2. Raymundo
    3. Rosauro
    4. Maximo

    i wish is to help clarify comments number 4 by ron santos de jesus and 5 by mar celestino ortiz. You guys are third cousins.

    both ron and mar are descendants of hilarion andres and leogarda ochoa
    from the book TAHANAN, they had 5 children: JULIAN, Francisca, Santiago, Cecilia and FLORENTINO. Most of the weath seems to have gone to FLORENTINO, the youngest son.

    ron’s great great grandfather is FLORENTINO while mar’s great great grandfater is the eldest JULIAN.

    Julian married Anselma Vasquez and they had a daughter PASCUALA who married CANUTO CELESTINO Lola Cuala and Lolo Canuto are my grandparents

    PASCUALA is the first cousin of JULIANA ANDRES SANTOS
    Therefore your Lola Loleng is the second cousin of your Lola Ondeng otherwise known as Lourdes Santos De Jesus

    Erratum: I think mar celestino ortiz, your connected to Lit del Rosario the mayors wife dahil sa may dugong Andres sya. si lola Ondes, de Jesus sya di ba? yung asawa niya kamag anak ng father ko, hindi ko lang alam kung paano. kung kapatid ba sya ng lolo ng tatay ko o pinsan sya. at alam ko yung may ari ng L&S chemical kamag anak din ng tatay ko. yan lang ang alam ko kasi ang father ko ay namayapa na..

    i came across your site and found it really interesting much like a history book.
    i belong to the clan of andres-celestino of almacen, grand mother Dolores (Loleng) andres-Celestino is the daughter of Mayor Canuto Celestino but she passed away decades ago. i remember those christmas days wherein we visited relatives like Mayor Felipe del Rosario (but ’till now i’m confused as to who’s relative side were we) namamasko din kami sa residence ni Don Roman Santos, if my memory serves me right we were introduced to Lola Ondes by my Lola Loleng. But when we migrated to Valenzuela we seldom went to Navotas. Only during all saint’s day and also my Lola Loleng’s eyesight deteriorated because of cataract. since then, she can not visit her relatives in Navotas ’til her last day.

    It’s a pity that the Navotas i used to lived in is not the same Navotas during my childhood then. 😦

    For Richard Tuazon-Sanchez Bautista

    I am so happy that you have communication with my first cousin Manuel Santos-de Leon, and you both know the names of our relatives. I believe we are REALLY SECOND COUSINS because your lolo and our lolo are brothers and our parents are first cousins, right?

    Before i moved to Canada, Manuel’s mom and I went to Malabon and we got the address and phone number of Aurea in Sarnia, Ontario. I know she is the daughter of Lola Maria.

    I hope that through this site, we can come closer together as COUSINS.. I am here in Canada now with my family and will appreciate if you could email me directly at so we can give each other our contact numbers. I hope to see you personally someday.. GOD BLESS..

  71. Manuel Santos de Leon said,

    September 8, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    Thanks Chard. By the way about your Lolo Seniong, I was always hearing about him from my mom the name Judge Arsenio Santos when i was a kid. How about the other half-sister of Don Arsenio, Lola Maria? Do you have knowledge of her? When I was a kid we used to visit as well Lola Maria who was the wife of Lolo Iko. Lolo Iko and Lola Maria were the parents of Auntie Dra. Aurea Santos-Jose who married a pathologist, if I am not mistaken her husband is an Indian nationality. Correct me if I was wrong. I met also before their daughter named Shanty and her brother but I forgot the name. They used to leave in Ontario, Canada and still until now they are in Ontario.

    Correction on the “Angkan” by Martin Tinio from Mike Santos ( Vicente Roman Santos Santos ):

    1. TWO sons (not one) of Benedicto Luna (of Batangas) and Bernabela Rufino y Santos (of Malabon) resided in Malabon. These are my great grandfather, Ángel Luna y Rufino (who married Filemena Cruz y Talag) and David Luna y Rufino (who married Ándrea Páez). The latter couple were the first to live in the Luna-Páez house at the end of Calle Páez in Dongan known for its Amorsolo frescoes. (Incidentally, Angel and David were among 5 children of Benedicto and Bernabela).

    2. Angel Luna and Filomena Cruz had FOUR (not three) children. the first, Benedicto, married his first cousin, Francisca, daughter of Remigio Luna and Rafaela Dinglasan y Luna (Remigio and Rafaela were first cousins too). The second, Avelina, married Agapito Yaptinchay of Biñan, Laguna, as Noni Agulto mentioned. The third, my grandmother, Felicidad married Arsenio Santos y Santos (of Baritan, Malabon, one-time mayor of Malabon and subsequently judge; a second cousin of his father-in-law, Angel Luna on the Bernabela Rufino y SANTOS side, but not related by blood to the Santoses of Navotas). The fourth, Virginia married Augusto Santos y Andres of Navotas (son of Román Santos y Rodríguez of Apalit and Juliana Andrés y Pascual of Navotas who were second cousins on the Ochoa side).

    3. Clarita, the daughter of Benedicto and Francisca, married Federico Santos y Andrés (may I just add that Federico is the BROTHER of Augusto Santos).

    4. It is correct that Mario, the son of Felicidad and Judge Arsenio married Alicia Santos y Andres. But Alicia Santos y Andrés (my mom) is NOT the first cousin of Mario. Alicia is the SISTER of Augusto and Federico. Thus did three Santos siblings (Augusto, Federico and Alicia) marry three Lunas (Virginia, her niece Clarita, and nephew Mario respectively). Incidentally, all these Santos-Andrés of Navotas are related to sina Toto González, whose blog you emailed me about. The González matriarch, Florencia Sioco y Rodríguez de González and Román Santos y Rodriguez were first cousins. They were grandchildren of Olegario Rodríguez of Bacolor, Pampanga.

    The Malabon Santoses mentioned by Manuel Santos de Leon are related to me also on the side of Lolo Seniong. Asuncion Santos-Martinez (of Tropicana Press) is the half-sister of Judge Arsenio Santos. These are the Santoses of Barrio Baritan, Malabon. Tio Carding Martínez, son of Lola Cion (Asuncion) married a daughter of Fernando Amorsolo. (So Manuel Santos de Leon and I are probably second cousins.)

  75. Richard Tuason-Sanchez Bautista said,

    September 7, 2010 at 10:13 am

    Former President Joseph Estrada’s (Joseph Marcelo Ejercito) mother was Dona Mary Marcelo Ejercito, was the daughter of Simeon Marcelo, who hailed from Malabon.

    Simeon’s brother was a Katipunero, and still has the 19th century house in Malabon.

    What is strange is that, Former President Estrada during the impeachment trial, Atty Simeon Marcelo served as the principal private prosecutor in the impeachment case against him.

    from “Batangas: Forged in Fire” edited by Ramon N. Villegas, Ayala Foundation [ “Angkan” article written by Martin I. Tinio Jr. ]:

    The Luna of Batangas City are descendants of Benedicto Luna whose name was mentioned by Jose Rizal in the first chapter of Noli Me Tangere. According to Nick Joaquin, Luna was born in Tanuan in the 1830’s. Benedicto Luna married Bernabela Rufino, sister of Macario Rufino, a Bangueño who emigrated to Malabon and whose descendants established a movie theater chain.
    One of Benedicto and Bernabela’s sons, Remigio Luna, settled in batangas town. He established pawnshops in Batangas and Tayabas provinces. Although disorganized, he became quite rich. Remigio kept records for his lending operations on the back of an aparador door. Faced with a lawsuit, he simply took the door off its hinges, lugged it to court, presented it to the judge as evidence, and won the case! He married Rafaela dinglasan, a Batangueña whose brother emigrated to Capiz and founded the Dinglasan clan there. Kind-hearted, Remigio allowed women to take pawned jewelry out to wear for the fiesta, even without paying the loans. Of course, many of them did not bother to return the pieces afterwards. He used to go around dispensing pills and prescriptions to whoever was suffering from any ailment. Once, he went to a barrio with his daughter, a doctor. The townspeople lined up before him and insisted that he,and not his doctor daughter, should examine them. Such was their faith.
    Remigio and Rafaela had several daughters: Severina, Manuela, Francisca, and Consuelo; and two sons: Maximino and Esteban. Severina, the valedictorian at the U.P. School of Medicine in 1914, married her classmate, Dr. Sixto Orosa of Taal. Manuela was the second wife of Don Pablo Borbon. Francisca married her first cousin Benidicto Luna. Consuelo married Dr. Narciso Cordero from Pansanjan; their daughter Gilda Cordero, noted writer and publisher, married President Aquino’s Energy secretary, Marcelo Fernando of Bulacan. Maximino married his first cousin, Felicidad Arenas. Esteban married Mariquita Alegre.
    Benedicto and Bernabela Luna’s other son migrated to Malabon and had a son named after grandfather Benedicto, as well as two daughters, Virginia and Felicidad. Grandson Benedicto Luna married his first cousin, Francisca Luna, the daughter of Don Remigio. Benidicto and Francisca’s daughter, Clarita, married Federico Santos while Benedicto’s younger sister, Felicidad, married Judge Arsenio Santos of Malabon (not related to the Navotas Santoses). Their son, Mario Luna Santos, married his first cousin, Alicia Luna Santos, daughter of Augusto and Virginia.

    Malabon of yesteryears whose population in 1888 was recorded at 20,608 people It was a town of great commercial importance. At that time Malabon had some 160 textile mills making jusi and silk that are used for shirts, skirts, and scarves, 65 to 70 rice mills, many fishponds as well as bancas and cascos for fishing in the sea and for navigating the distance between Manila and Malabon, and a number of fish pens erected by well-off inhabitants. The town had saltbeds producing an estimated 10,000 fanegas of salt annually. A fanega is a unit of capacity that varied between 5.5 and 22.5 liters depending upon the district. It also boasted then of having a rum and anise wine making plant, a big business owned by a Chinese named Santos

My mother is now 74 yo and i just learned few stories from her about our Santos family. We were visiting Malabon when I was a kid. We used to visit Lola Maria and Lola Scion and I had medical check with my Auntie Dr. Aurea Santos before.

    Dear Toto,

    Just a few additional surnames, including those from sister town Navotas. Incidentally, Tambobong (Malabon) was a town in the Province of Manila. It only became part of the miltary province of Morong (later Rizal) under American rule.

    Cruz, Villongco, Villonco, Maronilla, Coronel (originally from Pampanga), Geukeko, Juat, Naval, de Dios, Sevilla, Marcelo, Lapus (originally from Pampanga), Oreta, Magbiray, Baens, Dagala, Celestino, Buenaventura, Rufino (as in Rufino Building in Makati), Laiz, Vicencio, Yanga (converted to Santiago for aesthetic reasons).

    The Sevillas of Malabon have a family tree where they list down the surnames of old Malabon (which included Navotas for most of its history under Spanish rule). If you’re interested let me know.

    Who among the many Santoses? (Urbano, Roman, Arsenio);

    You have Don Pantaleon Bautista (grand father of Amb. Cesar Bautista) and Don Basilio Bautista (husband of Dona Gertrudes Ignacio Bautista);

    Paez, Camus, Martinez, Dalupan, as well;

    Teyet Pascual’s family are the Pascuals of Navotas and Malabon;

    Famed legends of Roman Santos, Gabriel and Naval stories, how simple they were and were underestimated in high end stores;

    Loren’s mom, Besy Bautista is not from the Bautistas of Malabon. They just stayed in a house in the Malabon side of University hills (formerly the Manila Golf Club).

    Hmmm…. I have the book “Tahanan: A House Reborn” which wonderfully documents the careful and painstaking dismantling of the Santos-Andres House in Malabon to the accurate reconstruction in Antipolo. It also contains vivid accounts of the Family’s history, the beginning and rise to power and wealth of Don Roman Santos. I love that book.

    From Binan, my grandfather’s (half) brother, Agapito Yaptinchay married Avelina S. Luna (I guess that would be Santos-Luna) from Malabon…… it’s a small world after all. =)



  96. Myles Garcia said,
