I'm trying to find out if there's still any alive relative of the Landestoy- Pimentel in the US.
The family ran away from the Dominican Republic when the country was under the dictatorship of Trujillo (1930-1961) and, although I have found many people whose last name ids Landestoy, I'd like to find the relatives of this part of the family.
The family was composed by 4 sisters:
- Carmita Landestoy. She never got married and I found her death certificate. She died in NY in 1988.
- Consuelo Landestoy. She married a Spanish emigrant named Lemes and had several children in San Antonio, TX. She died in San Antonio, TX in 2003.
- Caridad Landestoy
- Concepcion Landestoy.
I don't know if they ever got married and if they are still alive or if they have descendants. I found an obituary for Concepcion Landestoy in Miami Dade, FL but I don't know if it's the same person.
My interest in locating any nieces/ nephews or relatives that are still alive is because I'm doing a research for the University of Houston about Carmita, a famous leader and feminist who fought for the rights of women as well as for the freedom of her country. In fact, she was under constant surveillance because she wrote a book against Trujillo reporting atrocities on the Trujillo dictator and the dictatorship.
If anybody knows about this family or knew this person, please, contact me in order to exchange some information.
Thanks a lot and I hope to hear from any you!
