Si Esteban Aguinaldo ay ang aking lolo, siya ay pinatay ng mga hapon noong world war II ng pagbintangang isa sa mga gerilya. Ito ay base sa mga istorya ng asawa ni lolo Teban, ang aking yumaong lola (Salvacion Castaneda Aguinaldo/ 1911-1998).Ang aking katanungan ay ganito, si Esteban Aguinaldo po ba ay "KAPATID?"O ANG NAG-IISANG ANAK NA LALAKI ni Heneral Emilio Famy Aguinaldo sa una nitong kinasamang si Donya Rafaela Arqueza? mga kasagutan sa katanungang nabago o binago sa kasaysayan?
On our part, one thing is for sure and I would like to put it on record to answer part of my previous discussion. And so let me share the story of our Family "concerning us being the Aguinaldo's". First and foremost let me introduce all of you to my Great Grandmother Dona Rafaela Arqueza, first "wife" of General Emilio "Miong" Famy Aguinaldo. Although they were not married (which I think was the main reason why she was not recognized nor ever been mentioned in history) I believe that she was still a significant part of Lolo Miong's life. They had a son, my grandfather Esteban "Arqueza" Aguinaldo (married to lola Salvacion Castaneda), a namesake of the Generals "brother? " (as written in history?... I am not sure about this...)Esteban "Famy" Aguinaldo.
My great grand mother and my Lolo Esteban ( "Manong Teban" as his half brothers Emilio and Miguel Aguinaldo Jr. used to call him)are both victims of the Japanese attrocities as reported and was never been found eversince.
