My name is Jamie Leija, I'm 20 and from San Antonio, Tx. James is my second cousin. Mary Helen was correct about James' grandfather being Jesus Leija. Jesus was born around the years 1903 to 1906 and he was from Veracruz. My father Johnny S. Leija remembers Jesus' talking about his parents Macedonio and Ojenia Leija. He also remembers that two of his four brothers were named Hector and Pasqual. We've often heard that our name is Portuguese which was re-affirmed by Daniel Leija. If anyone knows anything else please feel free to e-mail me.
