Am looking for any info on my mothers family.
My ggrandmother was Carmen De La Garza de Gonzalez, born in Chihuahua City, Chihuahua Mx, in 1878. Her father was Melchor De La Garza, mother Lucrecia Flores. Siblings were Jose Maria, Francisco, Pedro, Phillipe, Melchor and Rosa. Carmen married Federico Gonzalez in Mx. They had only one child that survived who was named Maria Luisa born in Gomez Palacio, Durango, MX, about 1913-1916. Carmen came to the states in 1927 though Nogales. Maria Luisa married Pedro M. Noriega and had 2 girls. Emily born 1929 in San Diego, CA, and Olga Z. born 1931 in Douglas, Cochise Co. Pedro worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad in Douglas and was killed in a work related accident in 1931 or 32. AZ has no death certificate on him, so may have been in route to CA. The family had a ranch around Gleeson that they used to visit. Close friends in Douglas were Manuel & Socorro Mendoza and in Gleeson, Nacho and Loretta Valdez. My mother went to grade school in Douglas at the 15th St. or Ave School. She and Emily were christened in the Catholic Church then again in the Presbiterian Church in Douglas.I believe they moved to Califoria about 1939. After Maria Luisa was widowed, she married Raymond Sanchez from El Frieda AZ. He was suppose to have been one of her fathers ranch hands in Gleeson, but they married around 1941 in CA.
Would be grateful for anyone knowing any of these names and any info they might have. I know next to nothing about Pedro other than he was from MX and was 29 years old in 1931.
