Birth: Aug. 18, 1895
Asturias, Spain
Death: Dec. 29, 1974
Sonoma County
California, USA

Born Jesus Acevedo y Rodriguez to Fernando Acevedo y Perez and Joséfa Rodríguez. He left home in 1912 when his father remarried, feeling it was disrespectful to his mother's memory, and went to Cuba. He met my grandmother when she was traveling from Spain to Panama and they courted for about 10 years by mail. My grandmother traveled to Cuba to get married and they returned to the US via New Orleans on 24 Mar 1924. They settled in San Francisco and raised a family before moving to Redwood City. They moved to Sonoma County about 1969.

His uncle, I believe, was Bernardo Acevedo y Huelves, a famous Asturian poet and statesman.
