My great-great grandparents were Florencio Parra and Crencencia Carrales Parra. I was always told that her her last name was Parra before she married Florencio. I have no proof of that but thier daughter Cyrilla Parra Bribiesca (my great grandmother) obit says that her moms name was Crencencia Carrales Parra so is possible that her name before marriage could be Carrales? Florencio and Crencencia had eight children during there union. They are:

1.Juan Parra-Dead
2.Nieves 'Snow' Parra-Dead
3.Francisca Parra-Dead
4. 1 Infant Daughter-Dead
5. 1 Infant Daughter-Dead
6.Cyrilla Parra-Dead
(I am only listing the ones that are dead for I do not know if the ones that are living want their names posted on the web)

Now on to my great grandparents they were Florencio M. Brviesca/Bribiesca (changed when came to the U.S.) and Cyrilla Parra.

Florencio M. Briviesca/Bribiesca was born on October 28,1897 in Mexico and died October 28,1991 (yes on his birthday) in Kansas

Cyrilla Parra Bribiesca
was born on July 9,1905 in Mexico and died on September 6,2003 in Kansas.

all of there children except on is alive, the one that is no longer with us is Dolores Parra as with her aunts and uncles I do not know when they died.

Florencio and Cyrilla were married on December 15,1928 in Taylor, Williamson County, Texas. SO I assume this was where Cyrilla lived ever since she came to the U.S. up untill the mid-1930's when she and Florencio moved to Holcomb, County Kansas. Flornecio came to the U.S. I wanna say when he was 23 I knew the year on but it has locked me out of my shoebox since my three day trial was up. Can anyone help me find anything on any of these people?TIA
