Hello Rey: My name is Maria Elena Longoria Contreras, I live in California.I have been doing family research for some time know.I am trying to find any remaining Farias family members from Matamoros, Tamaulipas.
My mother was Martina Longoria Arballo (Farias y Sanchez) her father was Jose Maria Longoria Farias.I am told that my grandfather died approx. in 1937 or early 1938.I was told by a relative that he died in the home of tio Macario Farias in Matamoros.
Tio Macario also raised my mother's half brother, whose name was Jose Maria Jr. Longoria.Jr. died as a result of a hit and run accident, on his birthday, and prior to his wedding day.
Tio Macario had brothers named Francisco, Esteban, Alfredo and a sister named Carlota who married a Del Toro.My mother often talked with tio Panchito, tio Esteban even after she moved here to California.
We are wanting to find out more about our grandfather and whom were his parents, well especially his mother.Mom told us that Angel Longoria Cuellar was Jose Maria Longoria Farias's father, only we don't know who was his mother.
Angel Longoria married a Santos Galvan July 31, 1903.There was a triple wedding on that day among sibblings.
I don't believe Santos was my grandfather's mother, since when my great-grandfather Angel married her, Angel was 38 years old. We believe Jose Maria was born between 1885-1904.
Any informationyou can give me in trying to locate any living Farias family members of any of these mentioned above would help me tremendously.
