I am also an Alderete-Ramirez. I am descended from the blue-eyed Ramirez clan of Isleta, Texas. My great grandfather Don Victor Ramirez had a pharmacy in El Paso. I have a picture of it from 1912. About 1923 the entire family abandoned Texas for Los Angeles where the Ramirez pharmacy still flourishes today.
He was famous for making his spring tonic in his bathtub. It was virtually 100 proof!

I am related to Kiko Alderete. I suppose he was Enrique Alderete, and it could be spelled Aldrete, I'm not certain. I have been told many times he was a judge in Ysleta. But can find no confirmation of his existence, no land records, probate, brith, death nor parish records for any Enrique Alderete what so ever. I would like to see what he lookd like, and get his parent's name so I can research my family tree.

The lineage is very confusing as what is now part of Texas I believe was New Mexico before the Texan revolt. Our family wandered back and forth along the international border for many generations and includes members of the Brassell family who left Georgia after losing the Civil War and settled in Chihuahua.

Any confirmation of the Alderete linage in particular is appreciated.
I think Texas must have not recorded a lot of Spanish names in their records, or dumped them later on. I find Brassell everywhere, but hardly any Alderetes, and Alderetes certainly outnumber Brassells.
