29
Aviles St.

July 30, 1963

Memo: To Mr. Newton
From: Eleanor P. Barnes

Aviles Street almost complete. You will receive in few days. Covers 19 houses and three
complete blocks.

Many interesting items have come out of it. For example the Artillery comer boasted a Spanish
gentleman with his Menendez wife, the Treasurer's daughter. Then passed to a British Naval
officer, Capt. Skinner, so to an English Attorney, then to an agent for merchants, to a Spanish
dealer in Provisions and to the Minorcan gentleman, Bemardo Segui. Today the Library stands
here.

Block little "d" had the Brotherhood house and a grand-daughter of THE de Leon, passed to the
Episcopal minister and Juan Leslie of the Banking firm...

Bl. "h" knew the grandson of a former Governor and a Ponce de Leon in the bargain, also was
shared by a Spanish gentleman, Don Juan de Salas. Passed eventually to Garcia, the Tavern-
Keeper and Don Juan came back to claim his home.

Bl. "S" had the native bom Casahonda in full charge. He owned it all. Passed to a British
Storekeeper then to Builder Watson, finally by deed of gift to a Minorcan lad and property was
in charge of the sainted Padre Camps.

Comer of Bridge and Aviles knew the grand-daughter of de Leon, then the Innkeep
Henderson.. .then the British Land Surveyor General and an Italian Wine-Merchant!

Comer of the Plaza boasted a native boy, descendant of two prominent families, then a British
Planter, followed by His Majesty's Councillor, member of the Governor's Staff, then the former
Attorney general.. .among others... finally to the well known Florida born Sanchez-Ortigosa!

Fabulous relationships. You'll hardly credit it. Makes my Avero complex look small.

I suggest that we clear the north end of the town this way before proceeding south. What do you
think? I have sent in since June 1st, partial St. George, partial Charlotte, all of Cuna, all Treasury.
Suppose we do from the Gates to Governor's mansion, finish Charlotte and do Hypolita before
passing the Plaza?

Reports will be in about Thursday.
