    i see the name of Vicente Robles page 99 , my great grandfather was from Pilar Sorsogon shot by the Guardia Civil Lolo Vicente had a daughter Justina Robles ( mama grande ) who married a former Spanish Soldier Rodolfo Torrella ( Papa grande ) and they started the Torrella clan in Bicol .

    I see the name Paulino Marifosqur ( it is probably Marifosque ) I remember the last name
    when my mom and relatives talked about the old times .
    In the the sixties when we inquired about Lolo Vicente and Papa Grande in the same sentence we always got the response ( hay cosas que no se habla or anong labot nindo >==> lets not talk about it , its none of your business )
