IGI LDS: Miguel Triste was the son of Francisco Triste and Polonia Losoya
married about 1923 to Mrs. Carmen Weil who already had two children
Miguel Triste became the step-father of Edwardo and Junquin Weil
vi. RAYMUNDO TRISTE
born March 20, 1913 in the city of El Paso, El Paso County, Texas
died after January 12, 1920
More research needs to be done to prove that Enriqueta Rosa Triste
was the daughter of Francisco Triste and Polita Polonia (Losoya) Lozoya.
IF it can be proven that Mrs. Triste was the mother of Enriqueta Triste, than
the following oral family history verified in newspaper articles recorded:
After Mr. Triste's death, Mrs. Polonia (Lozoya) Triste remarried and became Mrs.
Pauline LaScala. After Mr. LaScala's death, when she was twice widowed, in the
1940s to early 1950s, Mrs. Triste-LaScala lived with a daughter in Mesa, Arizona.
One son, (possibly Manuel Triste) left El Paso, Texas and moved to California.
In 1955 when she was age eighty, Mrs. Pauline Triste LaScala visited her
other daughter, Mrs. Enriqueta Rosa Triste Calabrese, when Rosa's husband,
Joseph Calabrese, traveled 3,500 miles to bring his mother-in-law for a visit
from her home in Mesa, Arizona to the Calabrese home in Baltimore Maryland.
(Pauline Triste LaScala might have died after the mid 1950s at the home of her
other daughter who left El Paso, Texas to live in Mesa, Maricopa Co., Arizona.)

(Dee's note: My great-grandmother, Enriqueta Rosa Tristé Calabrese, was NOT born in Texas. She was born in Agua Nueva, Mexico.
She made a point of saying that she was born in "Old Mexico".
Her mother was born in Mexico, not in Spain, but she was of Spanish descent.
The census, although incorrect, may give a clue that it was her mother's
side of the family who were from Spain before coming to Mexico.)

When she was a young girl, Enriqueta Triste, also known as Rosa, lived with her family in El Paso, Texas. When she was in her teens, she would notice Giuseppe Calabrese, who was a barber in El Paso by about 1910. Rosie would peek into the barbershop to watch the young Italian man cutting hair. Giuseppe Calabrese, who also went by Jose, Joe and Joseph, noticed the attention from young Rosie and one day he ran out of his shop, wagged his finger at her, and said, "One day imma gonna marry you!" Joe and Rose Triste Calabrese would tell this story to their children years later.
On January 25, 1910, a marriage license was first issued to Giuseppe Calabrese and Miss Enriqueta Triste bt the County Clerk in El Paso County, Texas. In March 1913 Joe and Rose Triste Calabrese were living in California where their first son Charles Calabrese was born.

(Roberto M. Libertini was born about 1885 in Italy. He immigrated to America about 1911 and from 1915 through 1930 he was an Assistant Pastor and Catholic Priest in El Paso, Texas.)
From April 1915 through January 1922 they were living in the City of El Paso, Texas where sons Joseph, John and Frank were born.

When Mr. Triste, Rose's father died, her mother remarried and became Mrs. Pauline LaScala, Mrs. LaScala went to live with another daughter in Mesa, Arizona.
