Helen, My great grandmother's cousin---Maria de la Paz Cisneros Trevino born abt. 1862---was born at place called "El Ranchito" a village or settlement within the bonderies of "El Paraje Chapeno" one of three larger ranchos in the area east of Matamoros, Tamps. The other two being "El Gomeno" and "El San Juan" along the south bank of the Rio Grande river facing Brownsville on the north bank. Many Cisneros as well as many other families originate from these places. In keeping it short most of the church and civil records of this area would be had at Matamoros. My family has had much success at gettingrecords from the local church. PARROQUIA DEL SAGRARIO-CATEDRAL DIOCESIS DE MATAMOROS APDO. POSTAL 128 TELEFONO 2-01-12 H. MATAMOROS TAMPS.
