Ignacio Mendiola Cruz
Talo' in Chamorro means "middle." Gaige gi talo'. It's in the middle.
So the family story is that there were three Josés in this branch of the Cruz family. They were all, somehow closely related.
Since all three were named José Cruz (or de la Cruz, at the time), they called the oldest one José'n Dångkulo ("Big José"). In time, people pronounced it Ångkulo and this family is still called this.
The youngest of the three was called José'n Dikkike' ("Small José").
And the one in the middle, José Candelaria Cruz, was called José'n Talo'. "José in the middle."
He married Dolores Pangelinan Mendiola. Their son was Ignacio Mendiola Cruz, pictured above. Ignacio married Angelina Rosario and raised a family. We all called her Tan Angelina'n Talo'.
