NOTE: The census taker wrote Andres’s surname as Rambo, though this is very obviously Andres Gamboa.

NOTE: Although their listing says they’ve been in the US for 22 years, and that they have been married 20 years, I have never been able to find a marriage record in Hidalgo County or across the river in Reynosa, Mexico.

NOTE: This info says that Francisca has 7 living children. The other one that is missing is Santos, who was already married to Paulino Serda. Also, Francisca was still having children as late as age 50, and had another child some time later, which would throw into question whether she was actually the mother of all the children attributed to her. Possibly she was younger than her listed age, since she would have married at 30, which seems especially old for that time.
