Jane Esther "Jennie" Morgan Thomas
Hi hi, Thank you again for all your lovely Edits. However, your Edit for Jane "Jennie" Thomas gave Morgan as her maiden name. My research says it should be Madigan.

Best wishes and Bless you for all your work.

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.
