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,

Juanita Gutierrez headstone
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.

Catholic Cemetery
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?
