  1. Hi,
    I'm Rod Falcon, I've been told I'm a descendent either 7th or 8th generation from Blas María de la Garza Falcón (or Blas María de la Garza Falcón de Villarreal; 1712–1767), the Spanish settler of Tamaulipas and South Texas. I've been working on trying to start a geneology/lineaage from info I got from my dad and a cousin, but having difficulty with some of the details. Is this the ancestor you are referring to? If so can we share info to see if we have similar info? I'd like to corraberate it. Thanks so much!

  2. Hello Moises,

    I am a descendent of Manuel Contreras (c. 1810 – 1904) and Maria Rafaela Garza (c. 1810 – ?) and Rafaela is often listed as being a daughter of this couple. I found a baptism record of a certain Rafaela from 1809 in Camargo born to this couple, but without a marriage record between Rafaela and Manuel I do not know how this can connect those two Rafaelas. Do you know of a marriage record that can be found between Manuel and Rafeala, or perhaps another record proving that she is a daughter of Mauricio and Francisca? Thank you so much.

    1. My only citation linking her to her parents is Crispin Rendon but unfortunately, he does not have a source listed for them. But based on my database there is no other Rafaela de la Garza living in the Camargo area during this time period that I do not have parents for. This may not be proof but the chances of it being correct is very high.
