About Juni Clan - Philippines
THE HISTORY OF THE JUNI CLAN
by Filomeno A. Juni, Historian-Juni Clan
(1927 - 2007)


  In the early 1860’s, three first cousins, two of them surnamed JUNI left Bo. Botoc, Loay, 
Bohol to seek  their  fortunes, agreeing that they  will  return and let their families know 
the results of their adventure when they are already settled in the places where FATE will take 
them. One of the three  was  FRANCISCO 'Baraoy' JUNI.  He settled  in sitio Baong-baong (now 
Magting),  Mambajao, Camuigin.  A place between  the  flowing brooks of  Luangan and  Megi, for  
water was  his  prime consideration in choosing his land.

  FRANCISCO became a ‘kaingero’, ‘gabasero’,‘hag-otero’, and fisherman. Then he bought and 
developed choice lands in  what  was then the forested and  sparsely populated sitios which are 
now  barangays Anito and Magting. When settlers came, he gave them favourable tenancy 
conditions so that his choice lands will be fully developed. When this came to pass, he thought 
of marriage.

  Grandmother GRACIANA 'Gaci' BONGAO was  said to  have been  drifted  away by the westerly 
winds 'habagat' while fishing with her father from San Ricardo, Panaon Island in Leyte. They 
reached land and  were found by FRANCISCO at the shore of the  place now owned by an  American 
Mr. Tom Palmere. They stayed with him. As a young girl at 16,Gaci became Francisco’s wife at 
the age of 32.

  After his marriage, Francisco went back to Bo. Botoc, Loay, Bohol (his birthplace), to 
fulfill the agreement with his cousins. It  was there that he learned  where his two other 
cousins had settled. The one NOT surnamed 'JUNI' had  settled in then undivided Negros and the 
other surnamed JUNI, was employed in the Spanish Navy stationed in Portugal. So, it is not 
surprising that we have relatives in  both  Negros and Portugal. When he went back to Magting, 
FRANCISCO brought with him his three unmarried sisters known only by their nicknames Ogay, 
Agday, and Ampy.

  Out of that winter-summer  marriage were born six children, 4-girls and 2-boys.  The 4-girls 
were Estefania, Bebiana, Susana, and Basilisa. The 2-boys were Fermin and Eusebio.  ESTEFANIA 
married RUFINO CARILLO whose children were Victor,  Primitivo, Margarita, Eulogia, and  
Consorcia.  BEBIANA married JOSE MAYONE whose children were Leonila, Valerio, and Toribia. 
SUSANA married DONATO LUMBA whose children were Regalada, Francisca, and Rosario. BASILISA 
married  MACARIO BACOL whose children were  Eustacio,  Mercedes, and Lucio. FERMIN married  
MARIA DOLDOL  whose children were Francisco, Felicitas,  Casildo, and  Lucita. EUSEBIO married 
JULIA AVES  whose children were  Deogracias, Bienvenida, Rosales, Leon, Gerarda, Clemencia, 
Augusto, Filomeno and Julieta.

  Out of the six children and 28 grandchildren grew the JUNI clan whose 4th reunion is the  
subject and purpose of this souvenir  program. We are the descendants of that illustrious 
Boholano who rose from ‘kaingero’ to ‘Cabesa de Barangay’ of Magting and Anito. Ours is the 
duty to carry on his priceless heritage of  making the JUNI surname an excellent name, a name 
to be PROUD of.

  We have produced all kinds of professionals: physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurses, 
lawyers, physical therapists, engineers, teachers, seaman, foresters and other professions all 
dedicated to the progress of the Philippines.

  Whatever we may become, wherever the westerly winds may carry us, we must always remember 
what that noted black author William Haley as his “ROOTS”. We are only the branches and leaves 
but OURS is the solemn  PRIDE and that WE are the  pro-genies of a sturdy, valiant, courageous 
and steadfast “ROOTS” personified by FRANCISCO (Baraoy) JUNI and his cousins in Negros and 
Portugal.
