Raul N. Longoria
RE: Daniel V. Pena
I want to give you a little more explanation regarding the name. As you probably know the Spanish custom was to state a person's name as [Given Name] [Paternal Surname] [Maternal Surname].

Daniel's mother was named Arcadia Pena; hence, he gave his name as Daniel Villarreal Pena. The complication arose when the name was sometimes shortened by converting the paternal surname to an initial only, creating the impression that the middle initial was for a second given name and that the paternal surname was the last name listed. I have no logical explanation as to why they did this. Perhaps Daniel was only following the example of his father, Celso Villarreal Ramirez, whose own gravestone gives his name as Celso V. Ramirez. (Celso was my maternal great-grandfather.)

I offer this explanation in case you should come across other similar apparent inconsistencies in your work.

Thanks for the update. I am going to post the corrections in the biography part of the memorial. The picture of the death certificate only has the date of the death and not the birth. Are you related? That death certificate was the poorest documentation I have ever seen in my ancestry searches. If you would like I can transfer so you can add additional info if this is your family member. They sure got the dates way off on this one, which happens sometimes.
Thank and get back with me.

RE: Daniel V. Pena
Thank you for deleting his interment in the Longoria cemetery.

I apologize for my poor job in explaining the situation. The information you had on him was correct. The problem was that there are four different Longoria cemeteries in the immediate area of southern Brooks County. Unfortunately, many obituaries and death certificates just say that the deceased was buried in the "Longoria cemetery" without specifying which of the four cemeteries it is. The cemetery shown on historical maps is referred to as the "Longoria cemetery" and is the one started by my grandfather Eugenio Longoria. San Mateo was started by Mateo Longoria, my grandfather's younger brother, and is about a half-mile east of the official "Longoria cemetery". So, yes Daniel Villarreal was buried in a Longoria cemetery in Brooks County, but it was not the official "Longoria Cemetery" but the San Mateo Cemetery.

Daniel Villarreal Pena is not buried in the Longoria Cemetery in Brooks County, Texas; he is buried in the nearby San Mateo Cemetery,

There is already a memorial for Daniel Villarreal at the San Mateo Cemetery, so this memorial should either be deleted or merged with the existing one at San Mateo.

Thanks, I downloaded the PDF on the Stadelheim executions (the prison is right next to the cemetery in Munich).

In Pleasant Mound Cemetery. Just heard the story of this little girl from someone in the family - and how ironic we found her today - only a month after she was put on Findagrave.com. We just love this site and the people who are devoted to putting information online so we can find our relatives. Thanks Ash. Tex-Ranch on findagrave.com

RE: Cecile Beard
Thanks for changing his name in the bio. Also, I sent an edit to change Lucy's father from Calvin to Charley, and to take out the mother's name. I didn't look at the Dawes enrollment card close enough the first time!

RE: Blackbear
I literally JUST made that page for Chief Blackbear has a gift for his son. While I was cropping pictures you added one, so I was curious how you knew I had added the page so quickly, and thought perhaps you were related since you added the photo.

Hi Ash,

This is my great grand uncle who was an inmate at CIH who died there in 1904. I am having a VERY difficult time in tracking his records and all I need to do is have confirmation of who his parents were and that he is buried on the hospital grounds possible grave #3958. I have information on hand that tracks him to his birth in Co. Roscommon, Ireland in 1839. Feeling 99% sure though that it's my Martin.

Anyway...I have a lot of "feelers" out trying to help with his ID. Once I know, I will memorialize him. I am hoping that the NYC Mental Health Office in Albany will relinquish the info after I've sent lineage info to them beginning with me back to Ireland. We'll see. Any suggestions gratefully accepted. Thank you.

Great to hear from you re: Geyer
Thank you very much for the additional info on Mary Geyer, as well as for the clean-up you did on my dark photo of the graves of her and her husband. May I ask how on earth you found their marriage and her maiden name? I had really struggled with this and am so pleased you nailed it.

You're most welcome! Happy to do it! She was such a young woman and apparently very loved by her family. "Anonymous" left a very loving tribute to her. I'm sure she is missed very much.
