In Reply to: Cabrera - Cano family by Cheryl Fernandez of 65411

Hi Cheryl. I almost deleted your direct email message, I didn't recognize your eddress and in the subject box all you had was Thank You, which sounded like something a spammer would try. I had to come back to the forum to see what we "talked" about, so I'm answering you here. This way if someone else out there is working on this same family they will see what has transpired.

You can go to the box that says Search This Forum, type in Cano and see who else is posting queries that contain that surname. Also Cabrera, too.

I see you have posted on the Cabrera forum, did you check to see how many people with Cabrera also are working on Cano? One fellow even has a website - David Cano.

You said in your email -- "I think my great grand parents met in Refugio, TX. I have searched the census and I think my great grandfather had relatives down the street from my great grandmother. Feliciano is listed as a nephew the year the census was taken. I forget if it was 1920 or 1910. My great grandmother was married late in life. Some of the information that you sent I do not understand. How do I decode it?"

Please use their names, not how they are related to you, I would only be able to follow the message when you use their names. Census you refer to couldn't be 1920, as I have given Feliciano to you from 1920 & 1930 census in previous post.

Two pages from the Cabrera family on the 1910 census is a Miguel Cano, and listed in his household is a "Francisco" Cano, "brother", 21, b Mex, came to the U.S. in 1892. Only Canos I see on the 1910 census in Goliad Co, TX.

Abbreviations from census info:

sic -- one of those Latin terms that means "as shown," that means I didn't make a typo. (^_^)

hd = head
w or wf = wife
d = daughter
s = son
m/md/M = married
M 11 yrs = married for 11 years
7 ch, 6 lvg = given birth to 7 children, 6 living at the time of the census
b MX, MX, MX = born/location, first is for the person on the census, 2nd is for father, 3rd is for the mother. Sometimes these are not correct.

M(1) 22 yrs = married once, for 22 years to the person listed on that census.

M @ 33 yrs = on the 1930 census they ask as what age you were married -- married at 33 years of age. This one can be confusing, if someone married more then once, it just means the first time they married, and it does not show a difference for those with multiple marriages.

Did you check out the Goliad Co, TX GenWeb site, like I mentioined on previous post? Some of your family are on there, you need to spend time and check them out. I did just a quick look see and saw some of them.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
