I am a Diel from the Philippines. My father Concordio C. Diel told me that a great grandfather came from Spain. But the Diels in the Philippines originated from Dumangas, Iloilo, an island province of the Philippines. My own grandfather, Narciso Diel, was one of the Diels from Dumangas who emigrated to Burgos, Maasin, Southern Leyte, Philippines (another island of the Philippines)and married a native of Burgos, Maasin, Southern Leyte, Beatriz Carbonilla. Narciso and Beatriz had 7 children, one of whom was my father. My father, Concordio Diel, then emigrated to Cebu City where he met my mother, Belmontina Ybanez. My parents, Concordio and Belmontina, eventually settled in Cagayan de Oro City, located in the northern part of the island of Mindanao. My parents had three children, Corabel(me), my brother Jr., and my sister Fabia Beatriz. Of the three, only my brother Jr have children, namely, Maylene, April Jean, Concordio III, Concordio Lloyd IV, and Maricel. Maylene is a single parent and has a child named Cholo. I have several Diel cousins and nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines.
