Antonio & Catelina Grosso were from Turino, Italy. Catelina died in Italy, and Antonio left Italy with his daughter Enriqueta, and younger son, Antonio. They were going to Argentina, where Antonio had family. While the ship stopped in the City of Colon, in Panama, Antonio got sick and died there, leaving Catelina (who I think was 16 or 18 years old) and her brother stranded in Panama. There she met and married Jesus Parada Leal. He was a Colonel in the Colombian army and a member of the "Conservador" party. Some of their children were born in Colon, before he was sent to David, in the province of Chiriqui, where most of their children were born. 

My Grandmother, Amparo Parada Grosso, married Alejandro Perez Riva. Alejandro was a member of the "Liberal" party, which should have made things interesting in the "In-Laws" relation departmen. In Panama's history, there was a civil war, called the war of 1,000 days, (1898 - 1901), which was between the "Conservadores" and "Liberales". This was was an extension of the 150 years of civil war between those two political parties in Colombia. This particular was was fought entirely in Panama, by the Conservative and Liberal armies. My Great-Grandfather, General Sergio Perez was sent to Panama as the Liberal's Army's, Inspector General, and my Grandfather, was the battalions Medical Doctor.
