Thanks for your reply. I really don't think we have a direct hit however, there may be a remote connection. My grandmother Margarita Herrera and her mother Teofila Velasquez came to Powell, Wyoming around 1912 by train from Mexico. Supposedly, Teofila had a brother that either owned a ranch or was the foreman of a ranch around Powell. In 1912, my grandmother would have been around 5 years old. I am not sure what happened to her mother,Teofila, as my grandmother told me that she was raised by her aunt and uncle. Any clues? Also I should note that my grandmother's maiden name was Herrera. She was born in Chilchota, Michoacan, Mexico November of 1907. According to her birth certificate her parents were not married but her father acknowledged her as his daughter and gave her his last name of Herrera. On the birth certificate it also shows that her mother kept the last name of Velasquez. In the mid 1970's a man came to my grandmothers house in northern California. I heard this story from my aunt who told me that the man was my grandmothers half brother and that he also lived in Wyoming. He had hired private detectives to find my grandmother so he could meet her. Unfortunately, my grandmother did not acknowledge him and that was that.
