My grandmother Lilia Elizondo Sayas is the daughter of Teodora Sayas and Procopio Elizondo of San Benito Texas. Teodora and Procopio were married in Cameron County TX in 1898. She was born in San Benito and he was born in Mexico. My grandmother told me her father was a general in the Mexican Army. They had quite a number of children, Lilia, Lule (Lillian), Rene, Manuel (Manny or Meno (nickname)), Ricardo (Richard), Viola, Cuquita. I believe there could be one more but I am not sure of the name. I know that Teodora (Lolita) was mexican and italian. If you have anything to share please email me.
I hope these Sayas are yours too. :-)
