Am looking for any info about my mother's family. My ggrandmother was Carmen De La Garza de Gonzalez. Born 1878 in Chihuahua City. Her father was Melchor de la Garza and mother was Lucrecia Flores who died in 1918. She married Federico Gonzalez. Her siblings were Jose Maria, Franciso, Philipe, Melchor, Pedro and Rosa. I know that she and her surviving daughter Maria Luisa, who was born in Gomez Palacio,Durango in 1916, were living in Hermissilo, Sonora at least in 1925. I have a picture to Maria Luisa from Lupe Noriega dated then(any relation to Pedro?) Carmen and Maria crossed to the USA in 1927 and may have moved to Blythe CA, then to Arizona for a while. After she seperated from Federico, who I think preceeded her to the states and died in San Jose CA, she always lived with Maria Luisa. Maria married Pedro M. Noriega who was killed in a Southern Pacific Railroad accident while working for them, in 1931. They were living in Douglas AZ at the time Pedro died. They had two children, Emily Anne born in San Diego and Olga Z. born in Douglas. They all later moved to Califorina where Maria married Raymond Sanchez from El Frieda AZ, who had worked for them on their ranch near Gleeson AZ. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
