It's great to hear from you! Yes, his middle name being "Luis" may have something to do with the confusion between the two.

Andre has been in touch--I'm really looking forward to comparing notes. Thanks!

Nancy Padron

Juan Padron, my grand uncle, was Juan Luis Padron. Possibly the reason for some of the confusion. Not sure where Acosta came from, but I've heard it from the family. As a family historian, still not making the connections. If you can help, great.

To the best of my knowledge and according to census and ship's manifests, my Juan Luis Padron was born in NYC, Oct 20, 1892 and died in Grand Rapis, Dec 7, 1981. He was the son of Manual Padron Sr. His brother, my grandfather, was Manuel Padron Jr. My son Andre Padron, will send you the obits and news articles re: Juan. Hope this helps.
