RE: Arranagas from Del Rio Yes, Ina and Manuel were my husband's Aunt and Uncle. Manuel's father was also Manuel Arranaga. In the picture Manuel is the second from the left and his father is the 4th from the left holding one of his grandchildren. My husband's father is the 3rd one from the left. Unfortunately all of that generation has passed. Manuel Arraņaga and Victoria Guerra had three sons (Luis, Manuel, & Carlos) and one daughter - Irma. This store was on south main street @ Pafford. Until recently it was Laing's Furniture (across from United Medical Center. Manuel and Ina moved to San Jose, California with their 7 children. Please don't think me rude, but there was a little age gap between Manuel and Carlos. My husband and I are 51, may I ask your age? Maybe we went to school together.
Sam Gonzales Perhaps he was moved to a different cemetery. That location was used in 2011 when many of the burials in that section were in 1993 which makes me think he was moved. I am sorry I am unable to help you.
The Aldrete surname has come up lately in my transcribing of early Wilson County marriages. If you need me to look something (or someone) up in the early marriages, let me know. We have on a spread sheet marriages from about 1886 to or through the 1950's. Someone else transcribed them and I am proofreading before we take it to be published. This project is being done by the Wilson County Historical Society through volunteers such as myself at the Wilson County Public Libraries. We are working on transcribing the cemeteries as well, but have put that on the back burner to get the marriages done first.
