HI! - sorry this will be lengthy

I am wondering if we are maybe part of the same family?
I have a JOSE VILLEGAS (1885-1943) married to Maria (I THINK Sandoval (1886-1945), as this shows as her middle name on the death certificate)
according to the 1920 CENSUS (Oxnard, CA) there were about 6 children at that time:

Jose (jr I would think) - born about 1910
Luis (maybe louise...not a clear census)-born about 1911
Catalina - born about 1913
Ricardo - born about 1915
Rosendo - 1916-1986 died in Perris, CA (hubby's grandfather)
Juanita - born about 1918

Maria's death certificate states she was living in Santa Maria, Santa Barbara County, CA (Guadalupe St) at the time of her death...she is BURIED at EL RIO CEMETERY in Oxnard, CA...this cemetery is now called SANTA CLARA CEMETERY in Oxnard. I talked to someone there today who informed me both Jose AND Maria are buried there.
I found a JOE VILLEGAS living/died in Santa Maria, Santa Barbara County, CA so I am wondering if Maria was living with Joe (her son) b4 she died but was buried back in Oxnard with her husband...just a thought.
What caught my eye was today I learned that JOSE VILLEGAS (sr) Mother's maiden name was "PERA" (prob spelled wrong)
but do you think this maybe something? I think it is tooooo much of a coinsidence...let me know!!!!! :)
