  • Note:
    Jose Isac Norberto Gonzalez as a young man fell in love with a girl in village of Tinaja de Vargas where he lived with his parents, In those days it was called Rancho de Vargas. Jose asked permission to marry the young girl but to his surprise his parents Lorenzo and Elena flatly refused. Again and again he tried to persuade them to change their mind but they were determined not to allow the two families to be linked together by the marriage of their son. When the parents of the girl found out about the rejection of thier daughter by Jose's parents they would not allow their daughter to marry Jose even if he choose to marry her without parental approval. Desparate to break the deadlock Jose made a final plea to his parents by declaring that if they now refused to give their approval and blessing for the marriage that he would leave Rancho de Vargas and he swore to them that they would "never" see his face again. Again they flatly refused thinking that he was just being emotional and that he would soon get over this and marry one of the other girls in the village. Lorenzo and Elena miscalculated how deeply this would wound their eldest son's heart. Jose left Tinaja de Vargas and his parents never saw his face again. This story was told and re-told in the village even to those who had been born after Jose's departure. Margarita Gonzales Cobarubias (Jose's neice) related the details of this village history to Pete Moore in an interview / visit at her home in Paramount, California.

    Jose traveled North and crossed into the United States and found work at a Ranch near Ennis, Texas. In 1915 he married the second love of his life, Mary Bill Liddia Large. Pablo, the brother of of Jose, recieved word of where Jose was working and told his parents that he would go and find his brother. This he did and on the same Ranch in the United States Pablo met his wife to be. He stole her away as his wife. Pablo made several trips back to his parents home to visit and on one occation brought Jose as far as the border. Jose, remembering his vow that they would "never" see his face again, turned back. He never saw his parents again. This family history was provided to Pete Moore by Pablo's sons and daughters who reside in Houston, Texas.
