NOTE Estefana was my great-grandmother and Guadalupe was my grandfather. Her census info contains factual inaccuracies that may have been due to my own misreading. She was obviosly not male, and she obviously had 6 rather than 5 children. According to my grandfather, he was born in the US but christened in Mexico, which contradicts the info here. Also, Estefana’s 1930 census listing gives her birthplace as Texas, which is consistent with what I was told by my grandfather, but contradicts this census listing.

NOTE: The 1920 census listing for Estefana has not been found, though she certainly lived in the US in Hidalgo County, probably in Edinburg. The 1930 census listing for Estefana Valenzuela can be found here.
