My notes on Enrique Balaguer......
Enrique Balaguer immigrated to the US in 1881.
He married Juana/Jennie/Jane about 1883. This was probably Jane's second marriage. Jane may have been married to ? Garcia before marring Enrique (1900 census) Jane's daughter, Josephine Garcia, born Oct 1878 in Pa., was listed with this family in the 1900 Phila. census and living on North 20th St.
In the 1910 Phila. fed census, this family was living at 1108 Myrtle St. with 3 of their children, Helen, age 20; Marie, age 14 and Margaret, age 8. Enrique was a cigar maker.
Enrique's wife, Jane, was born in Cuba, and the 1900 census stated that Jane's parents had also been born in Cuba. Jane immigrated into the US abt. 1869 and gave birth to about 12 children, only 4 were alive in 1900, Josephine Garcia born Oct 1878, Anna F. Balaguer born Sept 1884 born in PA, Helen H., born Nov 1889 or 1891 in Pa and Marie born Nov 1895 (1900 Phila. Fed. Census).
Most of Jane's children died in infancy and were buried in Mt. Peace Cemetery, Philadelphia.
Four of the Balaguer infants that were buried in Mt. Peace are: Joseph Henry d. 17 Mar 1887... Jane d. 16 Sept 1894.... Juana or Luana Marie d. 8 May 1888 and Louis b. 8 Jan 1889 (PA. Phila City Death Certs.)
Daughter, Anna F. was born Sept 1884. She married Rafael Ortiz who was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico in 1884.. and died between 1918 and 1920. There were 3 children from this marriage... Henry b. 1916 born in Chicago, Cook Co. Illinois. Agnes b. 1910 and Elenore b. 1918.
In 1916, when Anna and Rafael's son Henry was born the couple resided at
6032 May St. in Chicago, Ilinois. After Rafael's death, Anna returned to Philadelphia.
Enrique's daughter Helen H., born Nov 1889, had a daughter named Margaret. They resided with her parents at 1417 Faun St in Phila. (1920 Phila. Fed census).
Enrique's mother, Nemicia, was listed with the family in the 1900 Phila. census.
She was born Sept. 1850 in Cuba and immigrated to the U.S in 1882or 1892.
I have more info on Joseph Balaguer. I believe he was Enrique's father or his brother.
