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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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?

Forgot to say ... 2 of his grandchildren are my great nephews - Blayne and Taran Hernandez :)

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.

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!

David, thank you so much for finding my great grandfather's grave and posting a photo of his headstone! You are the BEST. I can never repay your kindness, but I greatly appreciate all your help. CArthur
May I ask how you are related to the Laurel family?

Hi. My husband is Juanita Gutierrez's Great-Great-Great grandson and I am doing research on his side of the family. I know she was born in 1861 and died in La Casita. If I can have some more information on her, I would really appreciate it. Her full birth date or the date when she died. I also found her marriage record with Jesus Lopez. Looking into the past is fun, but it's also difficult.

Thank you for ur response...I checked both sites you recommended but I don't see that they have information on finding burial plots for the people buried at Catholic Cemetery...who would have this information? Also I don't see the layout of the cemetery to help me locate the burial site even if I had the plot numbers? Someone has to have that info..the city?
Hi do u have an address for this cemetery or can you add on the intersections to be able to find it? Also is there a map of this cemtery to locate graves (the layout)? Is this the only Catholic Cemetery in Rio Grande City? Who can I contact to find a person buried there and plot numbers?
