  • my goal (and personal interest), is to list all those who are and were connected to "El Morro" in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Wanted: Profiles and Trees, to research and further connect, of those who interacted on and in the grounds of "El Morro".

Guards/Watchmen, Caretakers, Soldiers (which may eventually, branch off into Sub- Projects, per Conflict or Military Definition i.e.: Branches, Battalions, Squadrons etc.), Gardeners, Cooks, Hunters/Fishermen, Horsemen etc.

My Grandmother used to play there as a child. Her Uncle was a Caretaker/Watchman @the Morro. She was there so often, that he set up a room for her to take a nap in, when she was tired from her daily adventures, in/at and throughout, this amazing Historical site. It was a historical site, even for her and her family... as she is said to be an 8th Great Granddaughter of Captain Antonio de los Reyes Correa, who is forever commemorated, with the words "Muy Leal" (Eng. "Very Loyal") and the Belt in the coat of arms, of Arecibo, Puerto Rico, for defending the town, from a British attack. (1703)
