To follow is my grandfathers obit. I am looking for info on his mother and father. His mother was Barbara Alvarado: I believe her maiden name to be Vargas her birth place is listed on her death certificate as Uvalde TX but I sent for it and they dont have her born there. I know she was born Dec 5 1877.
Her husband was Juan Alvarado I know they had 13 children together but that Juan was also married before and had other children. My grandfather Antonio B. Alvarado was the last child born to Juan and Barbara on 06/13/1919 Im told Juan died when my grandfather was 5 or 6 so that would be around 1925 or 1926
