    • "A little way along Front street was Wall & Company's store, presided over by Mr. Fernando J. Moreno, who was also underwriter's agent. Mr. Moreno was a thorough American, though of foreign descent. Courtly, polite, with distinguished manners, he was to be seen each afternoon taking his constitutional on a pacing pony, out to the bush and South Beach. He was slightly deaf, and carried a silver ear trumpet gracefully suspended from his left arm, which strangers often took for a cornet, and a wag was once known to stop him with the question, "Old man, when are you going to give your concert?" Needless to say the question was not heard, for no man was familiar with Mr. Moreno with impunity. His chief assistant at that time was Mr. William McClintock, afterwards mayor of the city; a large, portly, powerful ex-man-of-war's-man from Philadelphia, who had had among other vicissitudes the experience of going down with the United States steamship Congress when she was sunk by the Merrimac."

    • "Miss Mary Nieves Ximenez and her sister Miss Frederica, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Ximenez, were dark-eyed beauties of much charm and vivacity. Their mother was a di Borgo from the island of Corsica; a granddaughter of the statesman Pozzo di Borgo, who was a companion of Napoleon. When the latter left Corsica, the di Borgo family went to Spain, and married into the family of Cardinal Ximenez, whence they went to St. Augustine, and from there came to Key West. * * *

      The Misses Hortensia and Louisa Tatine, half sisters of Misses Petrona and Mary Martinelli, were four bright, vivacious and attractive belles of their day. Like Mrs. Ximenez, they were descended from Pozzo di Borgo. Miss Hortensia married Lieutenant Mayo Carrington Watkins of the United States navy. He, too, resigned his position when the Civil War broke out, and cast his fortune with his native land. Mrs. Watkins is living in Washington, D. C., where she has made her home for many years a charming and delightful woman, who embellishes her conversation with the flavor of the old regime.

      Miss Louisa Tatine married Mr. Fernando J. Moreno. She lived in Pensacola for many years and died in 1909. She left four children, Mrs. W. A. Blount, Mrs. W. H. Hunt, Miss Louise, and Fernando, who live in Pensacola, and Mason S. Moreno of Key West." [2]
