Mayor Isaac "Ike" Alderete of Ysleta, Texas.
Is anyone here descended from Isaac Alderete? He was born in 1874 in the former city of Isleta, Texas. Isleta was absorbed by El Paso in the 1950s.

Isaac was mayor, city commissioner and clerk of the court in Isleta.
I believe I am descended from him.
He would be my grandfather, or great grandfather. His son was also named Isaac Alderete.
Does anyone know if a Spanish knickname for Isaac, or Ike would be Kiko?
My father never met his father but always knew him as Kiko Alderete.
I suspect the city library in El Paso has material on him, as well as the El Paso Museum. I've called them about 30 times, but their lines are always busy.
The Texas State library couldn't find anything on him. More precisely they don't do look ups unless I know about a particular newspaper or magazine article I want them to search:(
So many dead ends in the Lone Star State for me.
I'm told there's an online genealogical service availabe only to Texan residents... I'm in Los Angeles, California.
You, my fellow Hispanic subscribers have come thru for me some many times on several of my familial lines....
