My Great Grandfather, Jesus Basillio Vidal was married to a Juana Acosta in the late 1800's. He had two daughters by her, one named Elena Mercedes and another named Lede. He also had a son by another wife named Martha Buck, his name was William. The family was in the shipping business trading Sugar, Rum and Wine. I believe their home was near Havana before emmigrating to the US. around the turn of the century.
