I came across your site and I would like to correct the details under Paciano Rizal. My grandmother Eugenia Rizal Lopez , whom just passed away last year is the grand daughter of General Paciano Rizal and Severina Decena. You might not know that The only daughter of Gen Paciano is Emilia Rizal who was married to her first cousin Anotnio Lopez who is the son of Narcisa Rizal.
Your information that General Paciano Rizal does not have any descendants is in correct. I am a fifth generation of General Paciano Rizal and Severina Decena.
For you information.

"Two years later, in the turmoil that followed the American
occupation of Manila, his family seized the chance to recover my Lolo
Jose's body unhindered by Church or State. Spain had fallen in the
Philippines; American troops took over in Manila on August 13, 1898.
Four days later, on August 17, my Lola Sisa, accompanied by her
daughter Angelica, sculptor Romualdo Teodoro de Jesus, Higino
Francisco and Doroteo Ongjungco, went to the Paco Cemetery and had
the grave dug up.
"The body was found to have been buried directly into the earth,
without a coffin. Nevertheless, the clothes were still recognizable,
though whatever my Lolo Jose had hidden in his shoes had long rotted
away. A vertebra showing a bullet wound was kept in a glass and
silver cup in Lola's house.
"The remains were taken to my Lola Sisa's house, where Higino
Francisco and Romualdo Teodoro de Jesus themselves reverently washed
the bones. They were later placed in an ivory urn carved by De Jesus.
This urn was venerated in frequent public ceremonies during the
1900s, when Rizal began to be honored as the National Hero of the
As recalled by Asuncion Lopez Bantug:
"In 1912, the foundations were laid for a monument at the Luneta that
would also serve as the final tomb for the hero's mortal remains. On
December 29, 1912, the urn containing the remains was borne in solemn
procession from the family's house to the Ayuntamiento, that fine
Marble Hall that had been a symbol of Spanish sovereignty in the
Philippines. [Teodora Alonso was laid in state in the same location
the previous year.] In the salon of the Ayuntamiento, the urn was
enshrined on a magnificent catafalque surrounded by innumerable
floral wreaths, offerings of the nation. Throughout that night, the
Knights of Rizal and other patriotic groups as well as the public
kept vigil round the catafalque."
