She was married to Lucas Longoria who had been captured by Apache Indians circa 1835 and lived in captivity in West Texas for 13 years. Lucas escaped circa 1849 and found his way to civilization in Castroville, Texas. He was taken in by the Anglo settlers there who sent word to Lucas' family in La Grulla. Three relatives from La Grulla traveled to Castroville and brought Lucas back to La Grulla.
After his marriage to Rumalda Alvarado, they lived at Guadalupe del Torero Ranch near Linn, Texas.
