Avelina ~ this is the only lady I can find who seems to match with any Mary Ramirez who was born in New Mexico. So far, I can't find any of this family in the 1930 census, but in 1940 they were living in Ontario, San Bernardino, CA.

The father was named Juan who was born in Mexico. The mother, Ramona, was born in New Mexico as were the children Antonia, Henrietta, Lucia, Maria (age 13), Gumersinda, Isabel (the only male), and Julia...baby Margarita, age 2, was born in CA.

Name: Ramona Ramirez
Social Security #: 548149712
Gender: Female
Birth Date: 10 May 1904
Birth Place: New Mexico
Death Date: 28 Dec 1967
Death Place: San Bernardino
Mother's Maiden Name: Roque
(Ramona's own maiden name not listed so can't verify she was a Chavez; many of the Roques lived on the Santa Domingo Indian Pueblo so that might be where Mary meant she was born.)

Nelda
Whoever posted the data about Nelda is way off because this lady is on FindAGrave, and her maiden name was Alford, not Ramirez...back to square 2.

RE: WestropeFamily
I tried to pass you some other info that someone posted in an online tree, but it disappeared somewhere. That one said that Nelda Maria Ramirez married William Westrope and was the mother of your mother and a son named Gary. This lady was born in 1912 (not stated where, nor were any parents listed) and died in Oregon. I've tried to find "Nelda" in any census record, but found no match...often common in NM records to rearrange names. I can find a Maria Ramirez born that year whose parents and some siblings were from Texas. HER parents were named Doroteo and Pavla (maybe should be Pabla?), but I cannot determine what happened to them. They had several children beside "Maria" in the 1920 census: Rafaela, Tula, Ladislada, Porfiria, Pilar, Casimiro (the only boy), Candelaria, & Apolina.
