Ok, I went to my dad to see if I can find out just a little more information. So this is what I know: my grandfather Jesus Espinoza Barba aka "Cleto" received an inventation to the 2000 Barba Family Reunion. His cousin from Sylmar, CA got it from their cousin Salvador Casillas Barba from Mexicali that my grandfather does remember.
Here is just a few of the family that he has told us about. My grandfather's father's name was Tranquilino Barba Gomez who married Emilia Espinoza Perez. Tranquilino's father's name was Petronilino Barba who married Norberta Gomez. My Great Grandparents and Great Great Grandparents were all from El Valle De Guadalupe, Jalisco, Mexico. My grandpa's cousin Silvano Barba Gonzalez was the Governor of Jalisco, Mexico.
If any of these names sound familiar or you yourself are a family memeber, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am very eager to know about my family.
