Nancy Padron

See my post on Los Padrones. Juan Luis Padron was my grand uncle, born in NYC Oct 20, 1892, died Dec 7, 1981, Grand Rapids. I have pics, newspaper articles, letters, etc. My son, Andre Padron, will be happy to share.

This does sound like a fantastic resource for Cuban players. One of my projects is to create accurate rosters for the various Cuban Stars in the U.S., especially for the 1900s and 1910s--this would be a great help.

I'm using Ancestry.Com to do a study of alien passenger records, census records, death records, and WWI draft registrations to gather data on Negro League ballplayers, and Luis Padrón shows up as born between 1878 and 1880 (close to the story you found).

Juan Padrón (or Padrone) has yet to show up in any passenger records from Cuba that I've researched, but is obviously not the same person. The younger Padrone reportedly resided in Michigan after his baseball career.

The passenger lists are a good source of information on the Cuban players. I'm trying to build a database to collect as much information as possible. I'll send you some as it develops.
