My name is Paris Saizan (firstname.lastname@example.org).My wife's mother, Elvira Palacios Martinez, grew up hearing rumors of 'an uncle' who would 'toss 100 dollar bills to the peasants' and his name was Don LUIS TERRAZAS.This is obviously the famous landowner in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Here is some background on the TERRAZAS Link:
Elvira Terrazas Palacios b. Apr 7, 1935 in Madrid, Santa Fe County, New Mexico
Father: Miguel Iguada Palacios b. Jul 5, 1899 in Nombre De Dios, Chihuahua, Mexico d. Sep 26, 1991 in Gilroy, San Benito County, California
Mother: Ernestina Terrazas b. Nov 7, 1901 in Nombre De Dios, Chihuahua, Mexico d. Sep 12, 1950 in San Jose, Santa Clara County, California
My wife's mother, Elvira, has no information about the lineage of their mother, Ernestina.
We are confident that if we could find the parent's names of Ernestina Terrazas, we can begin to piece together this side of the family tree.
I do have many, many children, grand-children, great-children from Miguel and Ernestina and I would be most willing to share this information.
