el que su terruño vende!

vende la Patria (madre) con él.

Authorship of File:Teatro_Puerto_Rico_-_1954.jpg

Hi, Marine. Are you the author of this picture? Or you just the owner of its original physical version? --damiens.rf 14:27, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Hello Damien. The copyright original owner was my father. He passed the copyright to my brother Jose Joaquin Santiago. Tony the Marine (talk) 19:54, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Thanks! --damiens.rf 15:28, 6 February 2015 (UTC)


Yes Tony, that is an uncanny resemblance! In addition to the overall shape, dimension and coastline's about ten details that match!

Hiram Bithorn

Your attribution of Hiram Bithorn surname as English or Irish origin is actually incorrect the surname was originally van Bithoorn and it is from the Netherlands. The family moved to Puerto Rico from St. Croix and some of his relatives still live there. I may not have put in an online citation but you are just guessing.

Bighorn Family History

If you follow your own instruction Tony it says you are wrong. Searching Ancestry for Bithorn Family History results in Denmark not Britain. You should not try using a source that disagrees with you as source. I know one of the family descendants, I asked them about Bithorn 16 years ago and the person I asked is still alive. Would you like me to give you their telephone number. I found where I posted 16 years ago and it seems we are both wrong. Hardy Nelthropp a Bithorn descendant said German and von Bithorn.RichardBond (talk) 16:05, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Interesting, I'll go with you on this one. Today all mention of the Bithorn surname as an English one will be removed. Tony the Marine (talk) 15:08, 2 April 2015 (UTC) check-in
