I would appreciate knowing more about Morro Castle, especially the history around 1846.

In my family documents it is mentioned that my Great Great Granffather was imprisoned there for about 8 Months in 1846.
He reported that he saw a Cuban rebel, Lopez, Garroted.

I would be interested in verifying this bit of family lore if any of the old records have survived.

Howard:

Did you receive a response. My grandfather Enrique Salinas, was also encarcerated in the Morro Castle Prison just prior to and/or during the Spanish America War. I’ve been unable to find documentation. He married Marcelina Capote and migrated to Tampa, Florida in 1904.
