Thomas Jones stone
Hi Randall - Thomas is my G-grandfather. I wanted to ask you if the crack in the stone is very bad. Does it look like it might topple over? I wonder how much to maybe fill in the crack.

Hi Randell
I am the granddaughter of Delfina Tarin Puente and see that your last name is Tarin as well and wondered if you are related to my grandmother Delfina? I am currently working on our family tree and read some interesting things on the Tarin family in the Handbook of Texas online.

Take care and look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Maria Josefa Garcia
Well, now you have me looking for my initial reference to the name "Maria" Josefa Garcia. I am not certain where I found the Maria part of it.I will need to look through some more records.

However, it is probably unimportant at this point in time since that particular memorial is already set up by another member and my great grandmother is merely set up as Josepha Garcia Gonzales, Josefa having been misspelled and I have in a request to that member to correct that spelling. And I have no problem dropping the Maria at this point in time without my knowledge as to where I first found the reference.

We will get it all squared away eventually. :)

Sorry for some of the redundancy. I had not read what I wrote to you previously and then noted that I had written to you the relationship already. Did not mean all of that to sound condescending in any way. :)

RE: Petra Josefa Lombrana 134857626

Petra Garcia Lombrano is one of my great aunts. We are looking at the same death certificate I believe and my great grandparents are both listed there. However, the name listed is Lombrana, which judging from the penmanship of the person filling out the form, it was written down incorrectly. Her husband, Lino Lombrano is listed correctly in his death certificate. And actually, if you look at the upper right hand corner of Petra's death certificate, the last name is spelled again correctly as Lombrano.

I am left wondering though, if she is buried in Paso de los Garzas Cemetery, or at our family cemetery which would be the Ruiz-Herrera cemetery. I think a lot of the mortuary homes listed incorrectly the place to which they were actually going.

I also do not see her listed in documentation that I have regarding the burials at Paso de los Garzas, but it might be incomplete.

I am trying to reach one of my cousins who is one of the caretakers of said family cemetery to see if she has a listing of her grave there. I have not had much luck reaching her today. Hopefully tomorrow I will have more information.

In the meantime, I am trying to link my great grandparents to her. Can you do that for me while we await confirmation of said information? Thereafter, if you don't mind, I would like transfer of her memorial to me for maintenance if you are OK with that.

I will list their numbers via the website. Thanks for your help.

Petra Josefa Lombrana 134857626
Petra is one of my great aunts and I was wondering where you located the middle name of her mother Josefa "Perez" Garcia. Josefa would be my great grandmother. I have been trying to find out her middle name and noticed your listing of "Perez" on Petra's bio, but I don't see it listed in the death certificate. Is it in one of John Ogden's works by any chance? Thanks!

I didn't notice the period after Archibald either. No worries, I removed it. Thanks for the information!

Randell, I have a copy of her death certificate and it states she was buried in Atlanta Cemetery, Atlanta, Cass Co., Texas.

I am not sure about this information. I have known death certificates to be wrong.
