I was just surprised to find a record of the marriage of my great great grandparents in Wilson County. I knew they were born in Kinney County, as were their two known daughters, so I expected that they were married and buried in Kinney as well.
But there it is. Nestor Gonzales married Guadaulpe Perez on February 3rd, 1875 in Wilson.
Their duaghters, Catarina was born in 1877, and my great grandmother, Antonia, in 1879, both in Brackettville.
Of course I want to dig up whatever other information there might be if someone on the ground there will give me a hand. I'm in Los Angeles, California.
There's another marriage listed for Nestor Gonzales, to an Antonia Padilla on August 18, 1895 in El Paso. I'm not sure it is the same man, but if it is it helps verify certain data.
I've found possible marriages for both daughters in Brackettville, both in 1895, so that would be quie a coincidence if all three were married in the same year. Antonia married a Cleofas Figuero and Catarina married Juan Martinez.
