  1. Good Morning, Moises! Hope all is well.

    My father was a Munguia, born in the Rio Grande Valley. Crispin Rendon was nice enough to send me a long ancestor’s list a while back.

    I’m thinking Dona Maria Munguia must have been another branch of this family, since I didn’t notice her name listed on my ancestor’s list. Maybe I’m wrong.

    It’s interesting, though, that my grandmother was a Chapa. Paula Chapa:

    Rosalio3 MUNGUIA, born 22 Dec 1870 in Hidalgo County, Texas; died 8 May 1940 in Hidalgo County, Texas,
    son of 8. Francisco MUNGUIA and 9. Petra RODRIGUEZ. He married 5. Paula CHAPA, born 11 Jul 1881 in
    Texas; died 2 Feb 1981 in Hidalgo County, Texas, daughter of 10. Faustino CHAPA and 11. Maria Carmen

  2. I am also from the Munguia Family of South Texas. I can trace my family to the two brothers Ramon and Gabriel in 1750’s. But I need to connect to the Munguias of Monterrey. It seems that Ramon and Gabriel were from there, any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
