Welcome Bienvenidos Asencio’s!

Published by

We are Aaron, Emily, Diego and Scarlett.  To all the other Asencio’s out there, I would like to thank you for visiting our site and sharing your stories. My great grandfather Antonio Asencio emigrated from Guadalajara, Mexico. Antonio’s son, also named Antonio, had four sons: Antonio (Tony), Adrian, Edmond, Joseph, and Johnny and two daughters: Loretta and Doreen. Adrian is my father. To the best of my knowledge all of our relatives live in Southern California.  Please feel free to post where your family originates from and anything else you would like to share.

    I am Aurea Sola-Asencio. My mother is Aurea Esther Asencio of Cabo Rojo, PR. She is the daughter of Oscar Asencio & Francisca Ramos Asencio (my grandparents), also of Cabo Rojo, PR. My mother raised my sisters (Esther & Anna) & I in Queens, NY. (We grew up in the 80’s 🙂 I have no doubt that as an Asencio, I have a lot of family in the U.S. alone that I’ve yet to meet! Christine’s post above is my oldest child. I now live in Fl w/my children (Christine, Marc-passed away in ’05, Brian & Paul) who are now adults.

    Hey, My name is Herson Ascencio, I am 17 years old and I am currently living in Los Angeles. My Father Jose Ascencio was born in Santa Ana, El Salvador. My Grandfather was also born there but recently passed away. I have always wanted to learn of the origin but never could find an accurate one. I am proud of having this name and may all the Ascencio family be awesome forever.

  5. Hello! I am (proudly!) Adrienne Asencio, daughter of Rafael A. Asencio. I was born and raised in New York. I love my last name! Asencio’s rock!

  6. Nick Ascencio says:

    I don’t know if my post belongs here, but my grandfather emigrated from Guadalajara sometime in the early 1900’s. I have been told by family members that the original spelling of our last name was Asencio, but was changed due to a clerical error when great grandpa was going through the emigration process. He was hesitant to register a complaint about the error for fear of deportation.

    My grandfather’s name was Frank (Ascencio) and my father’s name is Ramon (Ascencio). They lived in the Chicago area from the 1920’s through the 1970’s.

    We have family spread out throughout the United States under the Ascencio name, but could be tied into the Asencio tree as well.

    • Edelmira Ascencio Murphy says:

      I’m first generation born in the USA. My parents come from the Zamora michoacan area. I was told that our name used to be spelled differently and when the village (in Michoacan) got a school teacher he changed the spelling. I’ll have to learn how we used to spell it. I’m looking for information of where in Spain the name Ascencio (or other similar spelling originated). Any help would be appreciated. Also last name Alonzo.

    • Sandra Conway says:


      My grandmother had a brother and a cousin from Llanos Tuna, Cabo Rojo, PR. go to Cuba in the 1950’s. Their names were Ernesto and Arsecio (or Arcenio) Asencio. The mother and Father of one of them was Maria Monserrate Ferrer Pabon and the Father Gregorio Asencio Toro. I know that one of them came back to PR to visit and then they never returned.

      I do not know anything about them but except that my grandmother’s brother left a daughter who still lives, Milagros. He left her with my grandmother, Aurea.

  9. Joy says:

    Hi everyone!

    I am so glad that I found this website though I really don’t know if we are still related to each other. I am Joy Asencio, 25 years old from Philippines. My grandfather Emilliano Asencio left when my father is still young. I am hoping that this site will help me find my grandfather. We last saw him year 1991. After that meeting, we never heard anything from him. We know that he has a second family and we admit that. All we want to know is where he is staying now. If anyone reads my comment here especially the Asencios here in Philippines, if you know something about my grandfather, please let me know.

    Thanks! Godbless!

  16. Judy Asencio says:

    Hello, My family is from Cabo Rojo P.R. My dad is the youngest of six boys, born to Blanca Perez and Pedro Asencio, My grandfather died very young when my dad was a baby. I never have seen any pictures of him and would like to know if any one who knew him has a picture My dad name is Carlos A. Asencio, his brothers are Rafael, Hector, Tabito, Rene, Ping? – this is what they called him not sure if that was his name.

    • Dennis says:

      Hello Judy, I believe we are cousins. My father is Rafael, and I did meet at one point or another all of his brothers. I hope your father is well, if you see or talk to him, he should remember me, the youngest of Rafael’s two son’s, my older brother is Ralph. Some of the uncle’s knew me as Pepe or Pepito. The last time I saw your father was in the early 80’s , I was visiting Grandma Blanca, with my wife Mayra, and by coincidence your father was there from NY. We were born in NY also, lived in Queens until 1970 when we moved to PR.

      I do know that when I was younger, both Hector aka Nino?, and Pin had passed within a few years of each other, because I remember my dad going to NY for Hector’s funeral.

      I don’t recall ever meeting you, and if so we were very young, but I do remember your dad being at our house in Queens just before we were to move back to P.R.

      I live in Fort Lauderdale now and my brother lives in Pittsburgh. It was nice to hear from one of us cousins, I do know that my father no longer stays in touch with his brothers, never knew the reason why?…..only heard a rumour that there was a disagreement amongst them after grandma Blanca passed.

      I was fairly close with grandma when we lived in PR and used to enjoy going to Cabo Rojo and visit with my dad…..good memories from childhood.

      Well cousin Judy take care, hope all in the family are well…feel free to contact me @

      Sincerely, Dennis

  19. Aurea Ascencio says:

    Hello ascencio’s

    My name is Aurea Ascencio. My family also emigrated from Guadalajara, Mexico. My Great grandfather name was Pedro Ascencio and Great grandmother Aurea Gonzalez. They had 4 children, Andres, Pedro, Maximillano, and Maria. I know my great-grandfather remarried and had more children. He also emigrated to California. I am not sure how many children he had or where they are at. It would be nice to know if I have more family.

    • cristabel ascencio says:

      hi i noticed not many people spell the last name Ascencio the same way, but with that said i noticed you spell it the same way my family does. my grandfather or great-grandfather was from Guadalajara, his name was Marco A. Ascencio, as far as i know her had four sons and a daughter that i am aware of, he was married to felicitas Gutierrez both dies over 20 years ago

    • Dan Haneckow says:

      My great grandmother was named Clemencia Ascencio. She was born November 27th 1875. We know very little of her or her family’s history, but it is believed that they came from Colima Mexico. Her mother’s name was likely Virginia. We do not know her father’s name but it is though that he owned, or was associated with a foundry in Colima. She had a brother, who we know even less about, but the one surviving photo of him looks like he belonged to the clergy.

      Clemencia Ascencio came to the United States in 1891. She later married Manuel Travers of Tulare California and raised a large family. My grandmother, born in 1919, is her last surviving child. Clemencia died in 1958.

      I have seen her last name referred to with a number of spellings, but I have seen documents by two of her children, who both wrote it as Ascencio.

      The above is nearly all we know. If anyone has information on Ascencios in Colima Mexico, in the latter 19th century, we would be most interested to find out more.

    Hey there, I’m an Asencio from San Cristobal, Dominican Republic. We have two large Asencio family’s here. One is the Asencio, who are the owner’s of the beer plant Presidente, they to put it plainly are white European.

    My Asencio’s are from San Cristobal, the birthplace of the constitution of the DR. My greatgrandfather Domingo Asencio has a street named after him since he was around since the time of the founding of the Republic. There is a street called San Miguel or Balsequillo, San Cristobal province where everyone is an Asencio!!!!! We are also of the darker persuasion, in other words we is mainly black (even though you do find us in many shades and color’s).

    Take care my fellow Asencio’s
