I am a descendant of Isidoro Roig from Cataluna, Spain. He married Maria Sotomajor. Their children were Baldomero and Francisca and were born in Cabo Rojo, P.R.
Baldomero Roig born in 1836 and married Francisca Cardoza and had 10 children; one being Prudencia Roig my great grandmother.
Prudencia Roig born in 1866 and married Virgilio Arana. One of their children Celia Arana was my grandmother.
Some of the Roigs in our family are:
Isidoro Roig, Baldomero Roig, Ramon Baldomero Roig, Puruco Roig, Eduardo Roig, William Roig, Edwin Roig, Ernesto Roig, Francisco Roig, Ramon Maria Roig, Jorge Roig, Antonio Luis Roig, Ricardo and Goren Roig. Some of the women were Georgina, Ernestina, Alicia, Fancisca, Aurorita, Dida, Juana Clemencia, Lucia, Prudencia, Ana Maria, Carmen Patria, Myriam, Mercedes, Martina and Encarnacion del Carmen.
Do any of these names sound familiar to the Roigs out there? Some were plantation owners, some poets, and leaders in their communities,apparently quite strong and outspoken people. They lived in Cabo Rojo and San Sebastian mostly but in other places also.
