I want to thank Mary Joe Galindo for sharing her work with us. I never expected to receive her email with the following pages from her 1999 Masters Report and I am thankful she let me share it with you. The first time I heard about Rancho Santa Teresa was when I found the baptism record for my 2nd great grandfather Jose Martin Garza you can check it out in my previous post titled Baptism of Jose Martin Garza – Mier Tamaulipas Mexico
. I also wrote another post titled The Mystery – Rancho Santa Teresa
Finally thanks to Mary Joe Galindo now we have a complete list of all the families and names of all the individuals residing at this ranch in 1817. In page 101 I found the only person named Ramona which is the same name of the mother of Jose Martin Garza. I think it is a great clue but I still have to do a lot of research on this family to see if I can find proof that I have the right Ramona. I am exited since the parents of Jose Martin, Rafael Garza and Maria Ramona Garcia are one of my brick walls. I can’t seem to find their parents anywhere. If anyone has any information let me know.
