Marcos,

I'm excited to hear that you found a Nilo in your tree. I am not able to view it since I have no Internet at the moment. I'm using my cell phone only for this message board post.

I looked up the old letters I had from Aquilio Zuloaga from 1890s and from Angel and Manuel Zuloaga in the 1920-1930s. In the letters from Aquilio, he states that his father, Aquilio, and aunt, Nicolosa, are siblings with Nilo. Aquilio married Delores Tejciro in March of 1893. The letters from Angel Maria Zuloaga spoke of visiting in the 1930s but ended up not being able to because he was called back from Washington to Argentina and didn't get to go to San Francisco, California.

In a letter from 1921, Manuel Zuloaga spoke of his grandfather Manuel Antonio Zuloaga being uncle of Nilo. That he has four brothers. And Nilo was brother to Nicolaza and Aquilio (who died in 1905).

At first I thought he said his uncle was Nilo so I thought Aquilio was he father. I believe I was wrong then. However, because I don't know enough Spanish to truly understand the letters, I have to use the computer to translate. I typed the paragraph that Manuel wrote in his letter below:

"Al respecto me es muy grato manifesté atarle que yo pertenezco a su familia de acuendo con los dato que se sirve reiitir. Su padre Nilo Zuloaga era hermano de Nicolasa y de Aquiles Zuloaga quien tuvo un hijo también llamado Aquiles, militar del ejercito argentino que fue muerto en el gradom de Teniente Coronel en la revolución del 4 de Febrero 1905. - Su padre era sobrino carnal de mi abuelo Manuel Antonio Zuloaga, guerrero de la Independencia argentina y de consiguiente Ustedes tía nuestra. - Somos cuatro hermanos varones, uno capitán de artillería y aviador, otro capitán de marina de Guerra, otro empleado y el suscrito, diputado a la legislatura de Mendoza y abogado. - Dos mujeres casadas que viven también en esta ciudad. - A tía Nicolasa llegué a conocerla siendo yo muy pequeño, murió hace mas o menos veinte años. - Como le digo, mi abuelo era tío carnal de su señor padre, según los datos que ha recogido."

I look forward to comparing notes and I hope to be able to find the common ancestor we share.

-Rob
