Hi Wendy, Hmmm-m-m-m-m interesting... Well, for starters does Elvira (or Mary) have a sister by the name of "Queta" (Queta ---aka Enriqueta, resides in Burbank, CA.) Yes, Queta spoke of Texas as "the territories" and they visited there quite a bit. Elvira must be approximately 90+ years old. Was her mother's name "Maria Vasques"? Was her father a copper/gold miner and maybe also did masonry work? You may contact me at:firstname.lastname@example.org Elvira may have relocated to Los Angeles after her marriage. When I was introduced to her (during a visit) she had reddish hair and blue eyes. She was close to another brother (I believe his name was) David. There was another older brother who changed his name to "Bob Davis". What is her married surname? (It might ring a bell.) Hope this helps. P.S. I reside in the Los Angeles area.
