Jésus de la Torre and Ygnacia Torres had a son Juan Manuel born 23 May 1858 in Santiago, AGS. Juan Manuel was a carpenter by trade.

Manuel Tallabas and Ysabel Araujo had two children. Amalia born 1859 and Mariano born 1866. (It is not certain but I have reason to believe that this family originated in Encarnacion de Diaz, Jalisco, Mexico.)

Juan Manuel married Amalia in Rincon de Romos, AGS on 4 Aug 1882. They had two children. Mercedes, born 4 sep 1892 in Aguascalientes and Dolores.

Mercedes married Rosendo Yáñez on 25 Jan 1910. They migrated to the U.S. via El Paso, Texas in 1912. They had four children. Amelia, Onofre, Rosendo and David.

I need to speak with a member of that branch of the family. My family tree information lists Rosendo Torres' mother as Agustina del Castillo. Contreras is not on file.

Surnames: Torres, Contreras, Martines
On the Texas Death notice 17 May 1937 El Paso, Tex. Jesus Torres' father is listed Vicente Torres b Mexico and mother Consolacion Guerrero b Mexico. On the Baptism record of Jose Jesus Torres, son of Jesus Martines Torres and Agustina Contreras. Speculation about Martines being perhaps a grand parent of Jesus Torres???

Still need assistance in finding Cemetery Records for Agustina Contreras Torres, b. 1871 Mapimi, Durango, Mexico. Up until the 1940 Census she resided on Alameda Ave. in El Paso, Tex. Word is that in the 1950-1960 time period she returned to Mexico to be with her daughters, Carmen, Guadalupe, or Otelia. Carmen md Maria Maximo Garcia. Guadalupe md Garcia also and may have remained in El Paso, Texas. Otilia md Frollian Silva with dau. Otila b 1921, and possibly another dau. The daughters attended private school in San Antonio, Tex. and son Frollian Jr. b 1926 and had connection to Hacienda La Losa near Leon. Silva may have had a Shoe Factory.
