Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ancestor hunting is so exciting! but once in awhile you hit a block wall- I am searching for the following people, my great grandmother Salome Francisca de la Trinidad Tarin Gomez. Francisca was born in 1849 in Texas and is the daughter of Jose Vicente del Carmel Nazario Tarin and Concepcion Ruiz y Cervantes. Francisca married Presiliano Gomez, my great grandfather on 16 Feb 1868 in Bexar County, Texas.
My great grandfather Juan Rivas was born abt. 1835 in Mexico, and married Micaela Garza.
William Henry Hare born abt. 1870 in Maryland, and married Carrie Carson of Missouri.
As a child I was always interested in anthropology and history. When my youngest child entered high school I decided to go back to school. I graduated from California State University Los Angeles with a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies and a minor in Anthropology.
I enjoyed my working years but now that I am retired, I enjoy the free time for leisure, travel, grandchildren and of course genealogical research! I occasionally take photos for others as a way to thank those that have been kind enough to have taken them for me.
I will no longer use my personal e-mail on FindAGrave, please leave a public message.

Juana Maria Isadora Leal Tarin

This is where I get my theory about Juana Maria Isadora Leal Tarin being my gggg grandmother, Hannah Mapes and perhaps why she may be buried in Ohio.
All info from the book "Refugio" by Hobart Huson

"Samuel S. Mapes, later to become"The Law West of the Mission," was in Refugio County as early as 1850. His first wife was Juana Leal, Daughter of a Mexican Colonist. Mapes originated in Ohio. When he and his family first arrived in this county, they lived on Colonel John White Bower's ranch on the San Antonio River. Later they came to the town of Refugio, and finally, about 1857, settled at St. Mary's where Mapes was a merchant, notary, justice of the peace, and postmaster. He left the county in 1877 and moved to Live Oak County. there his wife died, February 23, 1879. He then Married the widow of Benjamin Moore (Elizabeth), the first county clerk of Karnes County. Susan A. Mapes, daughter of the Squire, was the second wife of Theodore Monroe Dorsett. His other daughter, Sarah, Became the wife of Julius Leisering."

Sam S. Mapes was also a patron of School District No. 2 ( Refugio Town Tract) for the term from Feb. 04 to July 03,1856. His daughter Sarah Mapes was not of scholastic age but attended 9 1/2 days of school which cost Mr. Mapes $0.88.

"Northeast of the Cottingham home was the two-story wooden building in which S.S. Mapes had his store. He was Justice of the Peace for many years and held court in his store. The upstairs was used for many years by the Masonic lodge."

"The storm of 1875 was the beginning of the end of St. Mary's. Even before that casualty, the hopes of the town had been dimmed by the advent of Rockport and the prospects were none too bright. The storm, however, accelerated the end. Although the wharves and warehouses were once repaired, many of the principal merchants began to close out and move to other places. Some of these went to Rockport; others, such as James M. Martin and Samuel S. Mapes, moved to "Dog Town" (later Tilden) in McMullen County."
Hopes this helps, Jami

Samuel S. Mapes served as Postmaster of Saint Mary's 1869-1870.

More Juana Leal
This is my theory
Juana Leal-
Hannah Mapes
Birth: 1795
Death: August 8th, 1875
Chardon Road Cemetery
Lake County
Ohio, USA
The Samuel Mapes in the cemetery is her possibly her father-law not her husband. He remarried Elizabeth Moore when he was about 80 years old. Texas

Juana Leal
I believe she married my gggg grand father Samuel Smithwick Mapes after Tarin died.
They lived in Live Oak County. She is sometimes listed as Hannah or Johanna Mapes. She was mother to Samuel Mapes Jr.
I'm still looking for all of their graves.

RE: Amelia Moreno Request

I'm sorry this reply is so late (3 years!). I was very new to find a grave, and I only just discovered that I have messages on here.

I claimed several requests at that cemetery, and the cemetery had the people listed, but none of the graves were marked nor was there any evidence of the burial. Some of the cemetery is overgrown (while other areas are relatively well-maintained).

I'm sorry I could not find her grave.
