There is a twon near Muzquiz, Coahuila called Palau. I understand it was named for a person surnamed Palau.
In my dad's ancestral line I have an ancestor by the name of Maria de Jesus PALAU married to Jose Antonio NAVARRO, circa 1800. They were of Zaragoza, Coahuila around this time period. I believe that this Palau may have come from this Palau town but have not been able to substantiate that.
I would appreciate any information anyone may have on these Palaus.
