My maternal grandmother is Felisa Alesna Saclot. Felisa's
mother is Catalina Recarte Alesna ,my greatgrandmother and her husband Eugilio Alesna. I'm sure they all was on that same ship/boat to Hawaii , the first wave of Filipinos that came from.P.I. They had 5 children Felisa, Josefa, Marcos,
Pedro & Titing. If I recall grandma said she was about 10 yrs.
old when they arrived & she was the eldest of her siblings.
The youngest Titing I'm not sure if he was the only one born in
Hawaii. Some of the relatives last names also is spelled
Alisna. We had a family reunion in Hawaii in 1998 or 1999,
which my mom Genevieve "Bebang" Saclot Ramos and myself spear headed and many other relatives . Did you or you family attend our reunion @ Nanakuli Beach park? I was
amazed & was overwhelmed by the great turn out we had,
Alesna/Alisna clan from Texas,Wa,Ca, all the other isle, We
was sure over 300-400 relatives attended.Mom'a AKA : iNDAY
,bEA, she was known as 1950's Filipino Songbird of Hawaii,drama actress KAHU radio station with Mr. Tommy
Tomingbang with my Ninang (Godmother) Genevieve Romo Diate, andy many others.
We are still searching & turning in names etc. relatives to
