Hidalgo County, Texas
1920 census
Precinct 5, Abram Village

15, 16
Serda, Jesusa, head, 65, wd, Mex
____, Francisco, son, 29
“, Romana, dau, 34

NOTE: I am fairly sure that this is a listing for Jesusa Serda Ochoa the widow of Cornelio Ochoa. However, I did not seem to record the children’s surname.

Same village as above:

Serda, Diego, head, 40

Next door to:

Serda, Estevan, head, 38
“, Maria, wife, 35
“, Ramon, son, 8
“, Ophelia, dau, 5 1/2
“, Maria, dau, 1 4/12

NOTE: Encarnacion, Estevan, and Diego were all sons of Donaciano Serda & Lorenza Ruiz. Jesusa Serda was probably the sister of Donaciano, but that has not been proven. Before he was killed by Texas rangers, Donaciano probably also lived in Abram, which was also known as the Ojo de Agua Ranch. However, he was not found there in the 1900 or 1910 censuses, nor anywhere else.

  1. […] The 1920 census info for both Diego & Esteban is here. Published […]

  2. When and where was Donaciano killed?

    • Donaciano and his son Paulino were killed by Texas Rangers in September 1915. At the time, the rangers were not a government police force, but were actually a racist vigilante group, mainly employed to protect the interests of the tiny minority of new Anglo-American residents along the border. Donaciano was visiting his son Paulino at his ranch, which may have been called Las Noritas, north of Edinburg. They were taken from the house by rangers and killed out on the land. Both are burried in El Desierto Cemetery on what I think now may be La Noria Cardenas Ranch.
