RE: Cleotilde S. Garcia

Awesome, I just wanted to make sure when I added the information to the family tree it was the correct information. In San Antonio, within the same fenced cemetery, it houses 4 DIFFERENT cemeteries. So, when it comes to things like this, I like to verify with people who live or have visited the cemetery to make sure before I get it wrong in my personal records.

Thank You so much for responding so quickly. I really appreciate it, and I hope I didn't offend you in any way. And, thank you for taking the picture of Cleotilde and Nicolas Garcia's headstone. BTW, her maiden name is Stillman.

Have an awesome day...

Cleotilde S. Garcia
Hi! I came across one of your memorials and I'm a little confused. 89719965
On the death certificate, it has her burial place as Garcia Cemetery in Duval County, and the obituary you added online also has Garcia Cemetery. However, you have her memorial for Conception Cemetery with a picture. When I went and looked, it said that Garcia cemetery was near Conception cemetery. Is there anyway that there's a mix up on your part (not to be ugly), or do you think that both the death certificate and obituary was incorrect...

Thank You,

Jesus Maria Cemetery
Hi David,

First, thanks for all your wonderful work! I am trying to find out where the families who lived around and near the Jesus Maria Ranch were buried prior to the 1900's. My great,great grandmother Emilia Moncayo and her husband, Manuel Anzaldua both passed away at an early age and before 1900. If you have any information I would appreciate it.

Anselmo Gonzalez
Hi David,

I think you and I have emailed before on another ancestor but this time I need your help on another.
I have been trying to find information on Anselmo (anselino) Gonzalez who owned, I believe, Rancho Viejo, next to the Ramirez's tracts in Jim Hogg county. In a census report I saw, it says his birthday is Jan 1853 but I cannot locate ANY anselmo born in that year or within a couple of years. No death certificate, birth, or baptismal records indicating his family or parents. I do know one of his wives was "Maria Rafaela Vidaurri Lasulde Gonzales" He is my second great grandfather and my mother passed away last year before I could get any information from her. He had about 9 children from 2 spouses, his children being josefa, Antonia, Inez, adela, maria, adelina, francisca and jose and pedro.
Anselmo married Rafaela in 1888 in starr county, tx.
I cannot find out who his parents or sibling were. Do you have him in your tree? I believe he may be the same anselmo as the one you have listed in the Ramirez cemetery born in 1860-1922 but am not sure. Can you help? Any information would be a great help to me...please.

I wait patiently for your reply. You may email me at

Guerra Cemetery
I added a memorial to Guerra Cemetery and I see you have taken pictures of Guerra Texas Cemetery and I'm thinking they are one and the same. I'm going to delete my memorial and then ask for a merge of the two but before I do, I want to be sure they are both the same cemetery. Any help you can give would be great and is the official name Guerra Texas Cemetery?

RE: Lorenzo
Thank you, David. I did not know he was your Uncle. I went to school with most of his children in Thorndale. He was a good man and has a wonderful, loving family.

Lorenzo "Pancho" Hernandez Photos
Hello David!

I appreciate the photo of the headstone you posted on Pancho's memorial. I am about to transfer his memorial to his youngest daughter and wanted to ask you if you would considering removing 2 of the photos you added. The headstone photo posted 3 times. I would like for her to have room to add a couple more photos if she chooses to do so. You kind and unselfish work is much appreciated.

His Memorial is #:103782890

Thank you for your time!

Best Regards,
