My mother is Victoria Davalos Tuacao and my father is James Emmett Starks, but the Tuacao family came from a very historical background. According to stories handed down from one generation to another, our great grandfather was Lapu-Lapu, the great chieftain who killed Magellan. After Lapu-Lapu killed Magellan, all of the chief's family members were beheaded, and those who survived changed their name to Tuacao to make their names sound Spanish so that the Spaniards would not kill them. As you can see there is an in that last name (which makes it sound Spanish). Unfortunately due to old typewriters that did not have the key eventually the is slowly disappearing and becoming an n. And yes that is the history of the Tuacao name, which originated from Cebu.
