A quote from the article from the "Dominican American National Roundtable" (DANR). http://danr.org/?p=562

"De la Renta was born to a Dominican mother of Spanish descent (particularly Canarian), Carmen María Antonia Fiallo, and a Puerto Rican father, Óscar Avelino de la Renta. The Fiallos were so embedded in Dominican society that they could count poets, scholars, and businessmen as well as top army brass among their members. One of María Antonia’s brothers, Arístides Fiallo Cabral, was an intellectual – a doctor, lawyer, architect, and recipient of every degree the University of Santo Domingo could confer. Another brother, Fabio Fiallo, was a diplomat and poet.

On his father’s side, De la Renta’s great great grandfather José Ortiz de la Renta was the first constitutional mayor of Ponce, Puerto Rico to be elected by popular vote. He served as mayor from 1812 to 1814, from 1815 to 1816, from 1820 to 1821, from 1823 to 1826, from 1837 to 1838, from 1842 to 1843, from 1843 to 1844, and 1846. He had the distinction of having held the office of mayor of Ponce the most- eight times."

from Juan Jose's expediente matrimonial:

Married Magdalena Torruella Alcala in 1833. Juan José was baptized on 8 November 1803 in Ponce; hl José Ortiz de la Renta y Nicolaza Podesta, with Domingo Ortiz de la Renta and Antonia Sánchez serving as godparents. The priest was José Gutiérrez de Arroyo. Magdalena’s parents were José Torruella and Juana Josefa Alcala. Magdalena was unable to provide her baptismal record because the parish records were lost in the Wars of Independence, so her mother had witnesses certify her identity. Magdalena was born in Cariaco (Venezuela?). Juana Josefa’s first husband was Marcos Rafael de Vetancourt. Juan José owns 200 cuerdas de terreno en el Hato de Tibes, sitio de Montes Llanos.
