So, this is as much as I know about my mom's family. her dad's name was Miguel Tijerina (not Felipe like I said before, sorry).Her mom's name was Enedina Tijerina Solis. Their kids: Miguel Catarino Felipe Melecio (three more who's names I can't remember) Enedina Esperanza Polina Margarita Lupe America Juana Delfina
I know my mother grew up in Monterrey. Her father owned a meat market that was operated in the back end of the house. She talked of the river all the time and how they used to jump in sometimes even though they weren't supposed to. One of my mothers cousin was a Mayor in Bravo. I believe it's Jesus Hinojosa Tijerina who actually looks alot like my uncles. They were light skinned with colored eyes.One of my uncles had a first wife who he left in Monterrey along with his daughter, Macrina. I know I have family there, just havent met them.My grandparents house is also there and I hope to someday go and rebuild it.All of my uncles have passed, along with my mom and her sister Esperanza. We have family in Texas in the Corpus Cristi area as well as Nuevo Laredo, Dallas and El Paso. If any of these people sound familiar, let me know. You have lots of family in Los Angeles.
