This is not my family, but here's some information for you.
1920 census Starr Co, TX, some names are not real clear:

Rivera, Manuel, hd, 61, md, b TX, TX, TX
" Juana G., wf, 47, md, b TX, TX, TX
" A______ , son, 19, sgle, b TX
" Albino, s, 17, b TX
" Lucia, dau, 15, b TX
" Anita, d, 13, b TX
" Jose, s, 11, b TX
" Francisco, son, 2?, md, b TX
" Maria G., dau-in-law, 24, md, b TX, TX, TX
" R_______, son, 21, md, b TX
" Candida J., dau-in-law, 18, b TX, TX, TX

On the 1910 census there is another daughter still at home, Mecila, 18, b TX. Could be more children, but the 1900 census for Starr Co, isn't very clear and I couldn't find the family.

On the 1910 and 1920 census Manuel owns farm free and clear.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Rivera, Manuel, b 1859 + or - five years, spouse Garza. Someone else is working on this line and has more. I would contact that submitter ask for sources share what you know. They don't have all the children from the above census record.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
