CHAPA FAMILY TREE

Classification: Query
MY NAME IS SOPHIA JANKWITZ. MY GRANDMOTHER NAME IS SYLVIA CHAPA WHOS PARENTS NAMES WERE BONIFACIO CHAPA AND JUSTA FLORES. MY FAMILY WAS JUST APPROACH BY ATTORNEYS ABOUT THE LAND IN STARR COUNTY. I WANTED TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON BEFORE WE GAVE MONEY TO THIS ATTORNEY. I KNOW THAT A LOT OF MY MOTHERS COUSINS(CHAPAS) HAVE GIVEN MONEY TO ATTORNEYS FOR THE PAST 50 YEARS. MY MOTHER REMEMBERS STORIES WHEN SHE WAS LITTLE ABOUT THIS LAND. SHE ALSO REMEMBERS THE CHAPA FARM AND VISITING THE LAND IN STARR WITH HER PARENTS AND GRANPARENTS. I KNOW FROM WHAT THIS ATTORNEY IS SAYING IS THAT THEIR IS A CHAPA FAMILY RECIEVING MONEY FROM THE LANDS MINERALS. I JUST DON'T HOW OR WHY THIS ONE FAMILY IS DOING THAT. FROM WHAT I CAN GATHER BACK IN THOSE DAYS PEOPLE GOT RIPPED OFF AND I THINK THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED. ANYWAYS I WANTED SOMEONE TO EMAIL ME SO SHARE INFORMATION. I'M JUST NOW STARTING AND ITS HARD TO GET INFORMATION ESPECIALLY FROM BACK THEN. ITS NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THIS LAND, BUT ABOUT THE ROLE THIS FAMILY HAD IN TEXAS HISTORY. PLEASE EMAIL WITH ANY INFORMATION YOU ALL HAVE.


THANKS

SOPHIA
