HISTORY:

Santos Valdez Cemetery is located in San Ramon Land Grant (1804).

The cemetery was established in 1943 by Santos Valdez (26 Jul 1896-14 Nov 1999). Valdez came from Starr County about 1923 when he married Guadalupe Sanchez (21 Mar 1904-23 Dec 1990)of Brooks County. They had five children.

With his brother Natividad, he established Javelin Ranch. About 1939, the brothers bought part of Santa Monica Ranch. Santos renamed his part San Pedro, and raised cattle and goats.

His parents Petronilo and Pioquinta also lived at San Pedro. He was a cowboy all his life, went on cattle drives, tamed broncs, and rode in rodeos. When he retired in 1966, he converted his ranch to a hunting lease. Santos and Guadalupe Valdez are buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Mission.
