Concepción
Ceiba

 
During the first half of the 1900s, Concepción belonged to a group of Frenchmen, one of them with last name of Danoi who installed an oxen driven trapiche and then sold it to Miguel Antonio Veve Ferand and two gentlemen by the names of Garcia and Dorvir.  In 1864 Dorvir sold his part to Veve and García and in 1878 Garcia sold his part to Veve who then became sole owner.  Veve Ferand was the brother of Miguel Adolfo Velez Ferand owner of Hacienda Monserrate in Rio Grande and the son of Santiago Veve and Josefina Fernad, immigrants from the French island of Guadaloupe.
 
Hacienda Concepción was inherited by Veve's daughter Maria Clotilde Veve Diaz who was its owner of record in 1902.  At that time, she was the widow of Juan Vahamonde Lopez.  Miguel Antonio Veve Ferand also had ownership in Hacienda Aurora in Vieques which was inherited by two of his four daughters Concepción Veve Diaz (1849-1930±) who married José Sastrano Belaval  (1848-1917) and Josefina Veve Diaz (1845- ) who married Juan Ramón Zalduondo Becerril and later Dr. Prisco Vizcarrondo Vizcarrondo.
 
The remains of this Ingenio are currently in the middle of a residential area about ½ Km northeast of the town of Ceiba.
