Born in a small village near Guadalajara,Jalisco,Mx. She was left an orphan at 2 months old. Her mother was Monica Gonzalez. Her father was Mauricio Garcia.
Leonor was then taken in by her baptism godmother name? She lived w/her godmother until she got married.
She had a sister named Aurora Garcia Gonzalez, and a brother named Eluterio Garcia Gonzalez.
Eluterio moved to New York with his wife and 2 children. Leonor was asked to go with them but on one condition, that she say she was there nanny and not his sister she was approx. 15yrs of age at that time. Now as to our Leonor, three or four grandparents on Leonor's side were of the Aztec race. My mother for her part had a brother named Eleuterio. When she was little her brother took her in. He announced to Leonor that he was moving far away, and that if she wanted to come, you must say that you are the children's nanny, not my sister. He was different in color (lighter skinned) than Leonor. Leonor being the color of Native American descent.
It was related to me that Leonor had two children, Josefina Rodriguez and Emilia Rodriguez. At the time that both girls were very little, Mexico was witness to a revolution. Leonor and little Emilia took some clean, washed clothes to another town, and left Josefina with grandmother Rodriguez. While Leonor was making her deliveries, guerillistas came into the town she had left and a began a fight with the townspeople. When Leonor returned, she did not find Grandmother Rodriguez or Josefina. The Townspeople told her they had left during the fight. Leonor never saw her daughter Josefina again.
Pastor was brought to the U.S. from Spain when he was three months old, and was the first generation. Afterwards we went to Mexico during the depression. After living in Durango we moved to Sonora. I remember he used to say, that the day that he is ever gone he wanted us to go back to California, probably because he was not happy in Mexico.
He would say that the majority of his brothers and sisters were in California, and that only his sister Nacha was in Mexico and it seemed that wherever Tia Nacha was, he was too. Besides Tia Nacha, his other brothers and sisters were, Tomasa, Juan, Francisco, and Francisca.
