Affectionately known as “naña Te”, Maria Esther remained single all her life and was a teacher. She is known to have taught in Riobamba and the family has strong memories of her.
Ines Married Carlos Wilson from Peru. Carlos was the son of an English father and a Russian mother. The family name of this Russian mother is believed to have been Petrovitch. Carlos was a Chemical Engineer and owned property in Cuba with a partner. Together, Carlos and his partner had an agricultural business there – intended to develop improved fertilizer. Ines had three children, Agnes (born in Peru; deceased), Carlotta (born in Ecuador; deceased) and Charles ((Born in the U.S., currently residing in Long Island New York) . Agnes and Carlotta were sent to Boarding school in New York.
In 1919, when she was pregnant with her son Charles, Ines had traveled to New York so that the boy could be born an American Citizen. Later, sometime after the birth, she returned to Ecuador and in 1928 when the boy was 9 years old she became ill and passed away. Her remains are interred in Riobamba, Ecuador. After her death, the 9-yr old boy Charles was taken by his uncle Pastor to Panama where his Father met them and took him to Havana Cuba but shortly thereafter he was sent to New York near his older sisters. One of these sisters, Agnes, is known to have been sent to Eagle park boarding school in Ossning New York according to her daughter Mary Ann.
…Teodoro is known to have lived in the New York area at least in the 60’s and probably earlier but research is still underway regarding him. He was single and did not have any children.
