Elias - I believe we are related. My Great-Grandfather was also Gorgonio Menchaca. I am the grand-daughter of Maria Menchaca Rodriguez. And we are blessed to still have my Grandmother around, although she has diminished quite a bit these last couple of years. I just started looking for more info on my family roots. I've heard over the years that someone in the Menchaca family did a detailed family tree.
