I've looked at the 1880 cenus in Duval County and I did not find Higinio Alaniz's family there.In fact, I did find my grandfather's parents, Guadalupe and Lucia Garcia, and Guadalupe's brother, Vidal Garcia, there.
But, I know that Higinio's family were in the area because of Eulogia's baptismal record which shows that she was baptised in San Diego but maybe they lived in a different area around Alice.
Now, my goal is to find out where Live Oak, Nueces, might be.I heard that the area around Alice, Texas, was considered Nueces back in 1880's so I am assuming that they were near the San Diego area but in a different area. ?????
