Sep. 2009, just saw this web posting; have you made headways trying to identify the names of the exiles. My great grandfather Juan Pena was supposed to have been one of the exiles as he was implicated of having meeting with J. Rizal. Our family mythology includes discussion of how my grandmother went after the guardia civil with a bolo when they came to arrest her father. She had to be restrained so that they can take him away. We know that he made it to Fernando Po as there were mention of letters when I was a child. But have not verified these. It would be interesting to learn more about these exiles.
