I was browsing through the messages and noticed the name of your grandfather.My mother's (sarita leal) uncle was named Luis Leal as was her grandfather. The grandfather was born in ca. 1867 in either rancho san francisco or reynosa, tamaulipas. He married maria eufemia guzman and had eleven children (3 sons and 8 daughters). one of the sons (ramon) was my mother's father.we still keep the family house in san benito. this may be a coincidence but the name "luis" has not shown up very often in my research of the leal name. if any of this info. sounds familiar please drop me a line. I'm living in new york, which is crazy, but I will reply as soon as possible.
