Jacinto Collantes Veluz

Jacinto Collantes Veluz (1890-1978) of Del Gallego, Camarines Sur, Philippines was the son of Macario Lucban Veluz and Cipriana Collantes. 

He accompanied his father during his trips to nearby towns to trade cows. In one of their visits to Minalabac, Camarines Sur, he and his father met and fancied the young, orphaned Florentina Padilla Balid who was living with her uncle, the local judge. It is said that after “reasonable” negotiations between the elders, Jacinto gained a bride in exchange for their livestock. Their union bore several children, with the first three dying in infancy. Among their children were Salvador, Gregorio, Silverio, Celestino, Antonio, Bienvenido, Angustia and Pura.

    1. hi cassandra. i have very little research into the collantes line, although it would be great if i can grow that. if you can plot your family tree on geni.com, perhaps you can find a shared lineage with someone also interested in tracing their family tree. collantes is not a very common name, so i am sure there are gems to be had. all the best!
