Juan Blanco Carballo was my paternal grandfather. My father - Jose Jalandoni Carballo - was his youngest son. As I recall, Tatay had 3 brothers: Juanito, Cesar and Ernesto; and one sister - Monserrat. Another brother - Augusto- died at infancy.
My grandmother - Rosita Lopez Jalandoni - of Jaro Iloilo was grandfather's second wife. His first wife died on the voyage from Spain. She was buried at sea. When he arrived in the Phil. he was with his children, German and Conchita. Conchita later opted to return to Spain, but German stayed with his father. German's descendants are still in Dumaguete.
My father's ancestral home is on Calle Seminario in Jaro, Iloilo. Sadly, it no longer belongs to the family. My uncle Juanito died in Cotabato during the war. Cesar migrated to the U.S. during the Commonwealth years. Ernesto resided in Guimaras until his death in the 1980's. I personally met him in 1970. Monserrat died before she turned 20. Father was the youngest of the siblings. He died in 1988 at the age of 88.
I am very interested to know more about the family. I had already met my cousins' descendants in Dumaguete and we keep in touch regularly. The children and one grandchild of Uncle Juanito also keep in touch. I am sad to report however, that my cousin Jose Isagani passed away only recently on Valentines Day. He was a son of Ruben Carballo - one of German's children.
I have more information about the family which I am willing to share with you - including the family crest which was obtained from Carballo, Spain. I hope I hear from you soon.
