Concepcion Isaac Abella
Concepcion Isaac Abella was born in 1880 in Nueva Caceres, Ambos Camarines and was the youngest child of Manuel Pinzon Abella and Bibiana Isaac.
Conchita married Domingo Diaz of Albay, and bore five children: Bibiana, Jose, Domingo,Ramon Manuel and Jesus. Her husband, Domingo, was the representative of the first district of Albay to the Philippine House of Representatives for two terms — from 1912 to 1919.
This is how she was described on the Abella Family’s website: “Conchita was known as the ‘Queen of Naga’, and by most accounts, imperious and arrogant. On her way to church, she would walk in the middle of the road, and one and all gave her room to pass”. Her name appears in many Supreme Court rulings as it relates to the administration of her family’s vast land holdings.
Concepcion Abella de Diaz passed on 17 October 1950 in Naga City, Camarines Sur, Philippines. At the time of her death, she owned the land on both sides of the main road of Naga City, among many others.
