Your father is William (Willie), brother to my father, Joe (Jose/Luz) who was married to Lina Guerra, my mother. All of the Apodaca names listed on this El Paso family board are related to my family. My uncles are Ramon Jr., Solomon, Jesse, Rafael, Luis. My aunts are Delfina, Angelina, Elisa, Isabel, Adelaida(Lala), Aurora, Ernestina, Francis, & Genoveva (Beva). Our grandparents had 16(?) children. You & I are cousins....and so is Freddie & Tilly along with Richard & Gilbert and many more because this is a large family. My mother is still in El Paso as are my sister, Gloria and two brothers Danny & David.Last month my brother, Joe Andrew passed away.My father, Jose passed away about 7-8 years ago. I now live in the Austin area with my husband after retiring from school administration. I remember as a child Uncle Willie and Angie along with their children (Loretta,Junior & Dolores) would visit us from California. Yes, the family was estranged and that was sad. My grandfather was named Ramon Apodaca (1881-1962) and his wife was Adelaida (1891-1974) and they had a large farm in Ysleta. I have been doing family research on our relatives for many years and have been able to gather information about our relatives. I will be glad to share this information with you.
