I think we might be related as well (not hard to do with such a large family). My whole family is from Berclair/Beeville/Goliad area. I live overseas right now but have been trying to get our history for sometime from my relatives. My grandfather (Prajares Carabajal) had researched all the family history back to Spain. No one knows where this is? He died in 2000. He is as far back as I have gone. I have researched a little on the internet but can't verify it with anyone, so it is very difficult. My Grandmother, Francisca Ponces Carabajal is also deceased. Your information is very helpful. WE have a relative in Austin. Prajares’ (spelling from the obit) son, Fernando Carabajal and his wife Rita live in Austin.
I am curious as to how we have any history in Austin, Texas. Did it start there and move south? How far back are we Texans? Was Procobio Carabajal & Pridad Saenz born in Texas or did they come over from Spain?
Please let me know if you have any information on my questions.
Thank you for posting this information.
