In Response To: Re: SALICHE, SALICH, SALUCHE - Ponce PR 1910 ()
Oops, forgot to post data:
SALICHE, JUAN R (1910 U.S. Census)
Listed are HOH - Juan Saliche 29 - PR, PR, PR, laborer
married 17 years, 5 children born, 5 living
son Victor Saliche y Suares 15
Interestingly, Victor and Elena are listed as being able to speak English, though their parents and younger siblings cannot. This is the result of being in school. The father is listed as able to read and write, the mother Matilde can read but not write.
The family is listed "N" for Negro(black) - on the actual census. On PR census of 1910 "B" stands for blanco (white) and others are listed as Mul - for mulatto. In my experience looking at PR census data - to be listed as "N" - the family must be very very dark in color. People who would have been listed as black or mulatto in the States are often listed as white. My husband remembers his Uncle Juan, who came to New York, not his grandmother, who died before he was born - and says that Juan was "jet black" and handsome.
