About Regino "Ino" Diaz Relova

Lola Vicenta eyed Lolo Ino for her granddaughter Dulay. She would make an effort to make him feel at ease and offer him merienda and whatever. But with the other suitors of Dulay, she would try to make their visit short.

His becoming blind due to fall did not stop him from climbing the "attic" where he kept and hid all sorts of things, organized at that. He could so nicely re-weave the end of a thick abaca rope he was tying to a native hammock that the end can hardly be noticed.

A true Relova, fond of merriment, his name was even mentioned in the book, "A Spaniard in Aguinaldo's Army: The Military Journal of Telesforo Carrasco Y Perez" by Telesforo Carrasco Y Perez Translated by Nick Joaquin. The author must have been struck by the fondness of Pilenos for fiestas and dancing.

Lt. Col. Regino Relova  was imprisoned for nine days by the Spaniards in a prison cell in Sta. Cruz, Laguna due to his links to the Katipunan in 1896.The prison cell was was so small he could hardly sit or stand with his arms tied on a piece of bamboo.

He was one of the high-ranking leaders under General Juan Cailles in Laguna against the Americans. Cailles had so much high regard for Relova that, in one of his memos in the Philippine Insurgent Records, he described the Pila-born officer as "one of the strong arms in defending sacred interests-- believes him a worthy patriot and citizen animated by love of country, incapable of abandoning its people to desolation and misfortune."
