Marriage and Burial of Jorge Acosta:
Told Mr. G. thought you might like these if you do not
have them. I had copies as relatives in California and Florida
had all available documents gathered several years ago by me.


Item: Do you know that the little Pellicer-PesoQde-Burgo
house up on St. George was (one part of it) the home of
George Acosta one time when he lived with his mama and.
step-father, Demetrio Tudelache and Maria Ambros(formerly
Mrs. Domingo Acosta, 1st.)
All he had to do was skip down to the Villalongas to woo
Margarita. Then they lived on same lot awhile I hear. (after
marriage, of course! )
And in time their daughter, Maria Narcissa Acosta, married
Francis Avice of France. Then the house in front was called
the Avice House awhile by legend ..until the Avice daughter,
CAROLINE...married young Bartolome Oliveros,Jr. after that
the Villalonga area became the OLIVEROS section.....


And if you want to become more confused, Oliveros, Jr's daddy,
Bartolome, Sr. was born up in that Oliveros House restored some
years ago. He wooed and won the girl down on the north end
of St. George, Brancesca Gonzales y Carrera(half 1st Florida

family, half Minorcan descent)and then that area near gates
became the so-called Oliveros rose garden-orange grove....
Here Bart, Jr. was born and he had a few more steps to take

to run up and court the "stuck up" Avice girl. Just look
(over)











how they clung together. I did the Oliveros family with
documents for the Atlanta branch of the family.
The Gonzales side takes them back to the 1600's. (San Agustin)
It is all very interesting but often confusing to those hearing
it the first time.

P.S.


I have the early connections in a- direct line to Villalonga
and Cardona just sent me recently thru a client in Jax. Beach,
.after.I contacted Father Marti in Minorca for him.
(Met him, Rita, when he was here, the Archivero de MenoDca)
I will send you a copy soon.


Best to Prof. Gunong and his "senora"..
