Family stories passed down by Catherine Belaski say that Mary fled Puerto Rico alone to escape her first husband, leaving behind a child in the process. The 1910 census appears to confirm this story, stating that Mary's marriage to Esteban Feliciano was her second and that she had three living children, while her marriage to Esteban had produced only two. Mary arrived to Hawaii by boat in 1901 and may have married Esteban in 1902. Birth indexes for her children indicated that they were unmarried, so it may have been an unofficial ceremony. Mary died sometime between 1920 and 1930 in Hawaii.

Juana was born about 1880. Juana Perez married Esteban Feliciano.[1]
