Hello there,
i did some quick searching and found Ramon Cerda age 30,wife Minerva age 26 ,cresencio age 9,antonia age 8,Elvira age 8,and Natividad age 3 living in Karnes county texas.
they also list the mother in law. which would be Minervas mother. her name is Petra Molina age 50 widow.
i also found they immigrated in 1908.
sometimes the spelling of Spanish surnames change due to the fact that people were not familiar with those names. they wrote what they heard. i live in an area with lots of polish surnames. if i had to write some of those, they too would be butchered.
i hope that this info helps.
