Having come in possession of sufficient data, it is opportune to define and trace the Neri-San Jose branch of the Neri Genealogy.
At the start of the 1800’s, we begin with Salvador Neri, who married a Coronado. History notes that Salvador became gobernadorcillo from 1831 to 1832.
We also have information about his known siblings. They were Lino Neri who followed Salvador as gobernadorcillo from 1832 to 1833, allowing us to presume that he was a younger brother.
Another sibling was Leon Neri and from him we have the start of what we may call the Neri-Velez branch of the genealogy.
Salvador produced three known sons, Pedro, Graciano, and Ramon. Graciano and Ramon married two San Jose sisters, namely Dominga and Emmanuela.
My family comes from the Graciano line (he died in 1907).
We did not know much about his one sibling named Pedro. But for his other sibling, Ramon, we know a lot. And one significant detail was that 2 sons of Ramon, namely Vicente and Ramon, Jr. married two Fernandez sisters, namely Vicenta and Josefa.
Graciano and Dominga produced 8 children and they are as follows:
Anastacio Neri, who was married to Marianita Velez, and who died in August 14, 1923, childless. At one point, he was a mayor of Cagayan de Oro.
Pedro “Edrit” Neri, who married Crescencia Mercado/Rabatido. Born in 1898, he died on December 24, 1925, childless. He had spent his life in what was then called Tagnipa. The place is now known as El Salvador.
Filomeno “Minoy” Neri, who was single and childless.
Faustino “Tinoy” Neri, who married Matilde Menciano.
Ramon Neri, who married Cleofe Velez (born in 1875). Born in 1878, he died in 1932.
Paz “Inday” Neri, who married Nicolas Pelaez of Tailisayan
Conchita Neri, who married Juan Borja. Born on January 3, 1883, she died on January 25, 1945, childless.
Felisa “Feling” Neri, who married Casimiro Tamparong, Sr.
Our direct line started with Ramon Neri-San Jose who married Cleofe Velez.
The attached chart outlines the rest of the branch up to the current generation

In the photo the siblings are Pedro, Felisa, Conchita, Faustino, and Paz. Thus, the other siblings not in the picture are Anastacio, Filomeno, and our grandfather, Ramon, to complete the eight offspring of Graciano Coronado Neri and Dominga San Jose. In the above photo, the only person not included in that generation is Lucia Neri, an elder sister of my father.
Our paternal grandfather, Ramon Neri-San Jose.
