Looking for ancestors. My grandfather Alfonso Mireles was born in 1910 in Nueves Zacatecas. His father's name was Paublo Mireles who married a Mauricia De la Rosa. I don't know where they were from. I think my mom told me that her grandfather was born in Spain. They lived in texas and then in New Mexico. He died in Arizona of Black Lung. He worked in the mines. My mother said he spoke perfect English and was highly educated. He supposedly had a brother (Crispin?)who went to live in Mexico when they closed the borders way back when. My grandfather had a falling out with his family because he married a woman with children and not of his race. I remember my mother mentioned probably Nuevo Leon. My grandmother was indian. There are a lot of Mireles' listed in the Florida Unclaimed property list. This sort of tells me that maybe at some point they had come from Spain to Cuba to Florida to Texas to New Mexico and to Arizona. Anyone have information regarding our family please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
All his children live in Arizona. Alfonso Jr., Arturo, Francisco, Carolina, Virginia, Mercedes, Carlota, Emilia, Dora Ana, and Josefina.
