Robles p/r in Dilley Cem.
Hi my name is Stoney, you send me information on Faustina Vela (Robles) in Dilley, TX her husband was Santaigo Robles. Death certificate says he is buried in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery, but as far as I can find there is no such place, but there is a church by that name and a St. Mary's Cemetery. If my grandfather was buried there it could be possible for her to be there as well. Thank you again for all your work in that area it is very much appreciated. have a nice weekend.

Sincerely,
R. Stoney BlackRaven

I don't know. I do have family from McAllen, but a majority of them are buried in Mason Tx. I will look into it.

Thanks for the lead.

RE: Tia Elodia Cavazos
Ms. Russell, thank you so much for your prompt response. Elodia Cavazos was my dad's aunt. I met her and we visited twice prior to her death. She was kind enough to allow me to make a copy of her brother's (Teofilo Cavazos) photo and told me that she had several other photos that I could borrow to make copies. Some of the photos were of my father, Adan Cavazos (whose mother was Justa Cavazos; Teofilo's daughter). Tia Elodia was not married so I am hoping to be able to make contact with her family members (nieces/nephews, etc.) in the hope that they will allow me to make copies of my dad's photos. I also hope that they may have family stories that I would love to hear. I would really appreciate any information that you may be able to furnish. Thank you. Fannie Cavazos Hewgley.

Tia Elodia Cavazos
To: Maria Russell

Ms. Russell, my grandfather, Teofilo, was Tia Elodia's brother; my father, Adan, was born to him and Dolores Duran. I only met Tia Elodia when we moved to Rockport in 2004 and only visited her two or three times prior to moving back to Leander, Texas. She was going to share family information and make available photos (one of my father playing baseball)so that I could make copies for my family records. I was not aware that she passed until I happened upon her obituary in the Alice, TX, newspaper. I would like to make contact with you and others in your family as I am very interested in continuing my research into the Cavazos side of our family. Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you. Fannie Cavazos Hewgley, 235 Hoot Owl Lane N, Leander, TX 78641 - 512-986-5338.

RE: Vance in Morales Cemetery in Harris Co. Texas
George Allen Vance is my mothers father, my maternal grandfather. I don't know if there was a headstone, because at the time of his death, my grandmother had divorced him, and his daughters, ( my mother and two aunts ) were living elsewhere in the country, I don't think he had any other living relatives, unless he married again, which I don't know. I know he died in A Houston , Texas hospital from tuberculosis. Thank you for at least verifying he was buried in Morales Cemetery, I appreciate it. June Ashworth

Lira's in Catarina TX
Hi I found your bio on Catarino Lira and the info about that town is fascinating. I found this on Fransisco Lira In 1940 Census for Catarina TX.
Name: Francisco Lira
Age: 49
Estimated birth year: abt 1891
Gender: Male
Race: White
Birthplace: Texas
Marital Status: Married
Relation to Head of House: Head
Home in 1940: Catarina, Dimmit, Texas
Street: Durango Avenue
Farm: Yes
Inferred Residence in 1935: Catarina, Dimmit, Texas
Residence in 1935: Same House
Occupation: Labor Foreman

Here are his household members.
Francisco Lira 49
Silia Z Lira 40

Since Catarino was born in 1861 and Fransisco 1891 Could Francisco be a son? worth looking into. If I come across anything confirming this I will let you know :)

RE: Your remark about you createing memorial in 2008 and then someone did it again.
Maria, they put a lot of info about the couple on their memorials. Guess they didn't want to ask me to transfer my memorials to them so they could add their info. It doesn't happen very often. Most people ask for the memorial to be transferred to them which I am happy to do.

Maria, it won't let me take out the other Memorial for my Uncle because I didn't put it in. Thank you.
