What could have drawn my gg grandparents there from Mexico?
All I have are the facts, not the motivation. Mateo Ramirez and Maria Silvestra Romo were married in 1875 in Parras de la Fuente, Coahuila.
The next year they had a son, Victoriano Ramirez, in Brownsville.
In 1877 they were back in Coahuila for their son's baptism.
Mateo is listed on the marriage certificate as being a laborer. Maybe he came to Cameron County to work on the railroad.
I know Victoriano Ramirez eventually moved to Val Verde or Kinney County, where he met my g grandmother Antonia Gonzales who was born in Brackettville, Kinney County.
They had my grandma, Lupe Ramirez, in Del Rio, Val Verde County.
Before moving on to Ysleta in El Paso County.
I'd like to understand what motivated them to keep moving.
I found a death record for Mateo Ramirez from 1930 in Guadalupe County.
I called that county Friday, but they wouldn't tell me the cause of death, or anything else. Odd since he's been dead 77 years! I think it should be a public record by now.
