I have nothing but questions?Do they call you Trini?How old are you to help me put all this information in perspective?I am 53 and the daughter of Jose (Joe) Ramirez Jasso.My dad, Jose, is 85 years old, served in WWII along with 5 of his brothers?Did your dad go to WWII?Ask your dad what his father's name is?Juan or Guadalupe?We heard stories that my grandfather Antonio had brothers (maybe a Guadalupe or Juan)??? and sisters ( maybe Adelaida or Carolina)??? Does your dad remember if his dad had sisters, also?What were their names?Doesyour dad remember a man by the name of Primotivo Orozco?We hear from the oldest in the family that a brother of my grandfather, traveled to New Mexico with this person?
My dad and a primo of his (Jose Ramirez Loera) think that Antonio's parents were Jose Jasso and Valeria Beltran?Who are your dad's grandparents?
A brother of Antonio was the godfather of my uncle, Trinidad Ramirez Jasso.Trinidad Ramirez Jasso happens to have been my godfather, too.I think there is an old family photo of my uncle (4 years old at the time with his padrino).
My grandfather Antonio was born in 1884 in Zacatecas, Zacatecas Mexico.He married Genoveva Ramirez in 1906 whose parents were Apolonia (a midwife) and Sotero Ramirez.From Zacatecas, Antonio & Genoveva traveled north to Mapimi, Coahuila; then Palau, Coahuila; then Piedras Negras, Coahuila.In Eagle Pass, Tx around 1911, they found work as sharecroppers and moved to El Campo, Tx in the county of Wharton. They finally settled in San Antonio around 1918 where my grandfather found work as a painter and carpenter.Their family grew.They also had three children who did not live past their first birthday, Victor, Simon, and Anita.Unfortunately, my grandfather Antonio died in 1943 at the age of 59 of pneumonia.I was born in 1948 and now have a great curiosity about my grandfather Antonio's history.
Only my dad who is 85 years old and his sister (Lydia 75 years old)are still living.We need to connect your dad and his sisters with my living relatives?Who knows?We know quite a lot about my grandmother Genoveva (who lived to be 79 yrs old) and her family but not much about my grandfather Antonio.I sure hope we can help each other.Maybe even share some old photos?
