Juana was Juan's mistress and they had 5 kids together, including Eva. In 1920, after falling on hard times, Juan left his second family.
Juan dies in a car accident. The details of his funeral are unknown but their are rumors that his second family were forced to trail the procession in the far back and nearly not let into the ceremony. These rumors cannot be proven and it is likely that the two families got along.
