Surnames: Rizo, Torres, Sendeno, Ortiz, Angel
I was doing some resarch on my father's side of the family and found that his grandmother's family name was Rizo. I traced our Rizo family back to Ygnacio Rizo B abt 1740. He married Ynes Villegas, possibly in Ayo El Chico, Jalisco, date unknown. They went to Arandas and had alot of children, one being my ggg Grandfather, Andres Rizo B abt 1776. He married Encarnacion Sendeno in Arandas, unknown date (She might have been his second wife). They had my gg grandfather, Julian, abt 1799 in Arandas. Julian married Paula Ortiz Angel, in Oct 1839. (She was the daughter of Pedro Ortiz and Basilia Angel of Arandas)Together they had at least six children. Their daughter, Juana Rizo B abt 1855, married Sebastian Torres. They had about ten children. Their son, Francisco Torres b 1890 came to the U.S. about 1912 to work. He eventually worked and retired from Railroad work. He passed in 1974 in San FRancisco Calif. Francisco married Carmen Torres (his 1st cousin) in 1919 in Calif, possibly in Salinas. They had 3 children. David, their oldest was my father b 1920 D 1988. I would love to know more about the Rizos, particularly where they originated. Judging from the name it seems that they must have been Spanish or Italian. If you know anything about this line of Rizo's will you please let me know. Maybe we are distantly related.

Hi There,
The information you have posted is of great interest to me in regards to my own search. My Grandfather, Jose Maclovio Torres was born 1900 in Jesus Maria - Arandas, Jalisco Mexico. He immigrated to Texas alone when he was 12 years old, he lived in San Antonio, La Vernia, ultimately settling down in Houston. My grandfather died in 1947 and did not leave any information or documents with any information of what family or relatives he might have had back in Mexico or Spain. Now what really got my attention is that he did have a one cousin...or so my grandmother told me...(but he never visited)that had lived here in Houston and his last name was RIZO. Could this be the same Family? I have no information at all.

This may seem kind of ironic but my family is from Arandas also. My father has been doing a lot of family research on his father's side and some of the names (if my memory serves me right) sound a bit familar. So far my father has collected quite a bit of information regarding this side of the family including birthdays, siblings and death (not actual records though) all because of my grandmother's inpecable memory of these things (unfortuntly, my grandfather's more forgetful). So if you have any questions feel free to email me :3 Maybe we are realted....I forgot to add the Rizo's originted from Italy (southern), the surname means curl which refers to someone with cury hair.

Hello there long lost relative,

I can also trace my fathers family to Ygnacio Rizo and Ynes Villegas. My family tree should be public if you would like to take a look at it. Otherwise, send me a private message and we can compare notes.
