    1. Hi
      Estela aka Stella Hur0on (1916-1941) is my 2nd cousin 2xremoved, I have lot’s of info on the Huron’s.

  1. Hello Andrew Martinez; My name is Virginia Mauricio Pena. My ancestors are from the Losoya, Thelma area. Their family names are Casillas, Mauricio and Librado Garzas. I also have ancestors named Cardenas from Elmendorf. Please add me to your group as I am interested in stories, photos,etc of these families. Thank you, Virginia Mauricio Pena.

  2. Hello again, Mr. Andrew Martinez. In response to your photo of transcribing the letter written by los Senores Martinez to the parents of la Senorita Huron. This is a beautiful formal letter asking for the hand of said Senorita Huron. I remember my parents and grandmother saying that this was how the grooms parents went about asking for a marriage meeting for their son with the brides parents. I believe it was called “piede la mano de la novia”.The letter was usually covered in a fancy calligraphy cover and the grooms mom wore a fancy scarf that were both usually presented to the future in-laws at the time of the said meeting. My grandma said that she had a letter and scarf presented to her family ,saved with her trousseau. These items were lost many years later in a flood. I was happy to see your ancestors letters posted in the photo.
