Ponciano LONGORIA Villarreal1855,1858,2339,2516 was born about July 1852 in La Grulla, Starr County, TX, USA.294 The 1860 Census shows his age as 8, indicating he was born after August 1851 and before August 1852. The 1880 Census gives his age as 27, indicating he was born after June 7, 1852 and before June 7, 1853. His grave marker shows his birth year as 1855. His death certificate indicated he was 61 years old, indicating he was born after June 25, 1852 and before June 25, 1853. A baptismal index for shows he was baptized in 1853. All things considered, I have concluded his grave marker is incorrect and that he was born between June 25, 1852 and August 1852. He died on 25 June 1914 at the age of 61 in Santa Rita Ranch, Brooks County, TX, USA. He was buried in Santa Rita cemetery, Brooks County, TX, USA. Ponciano was a Rancher in Santa Rita Ranch, Brooks County, TX, USA.
Ponciano Longoria was born about 1852 and thus was probably the first "American" born ancestor from the Longoria branch. He was also a true land baron, purchasing many tracts of land starting in 1884. He established his first ranch at "La Blanca". Ponciano purchased many of his relatives' interests in the "Encantada" and "Encino del Poso" grants and combined them with his wife's and his own inheritance to form the Santa Rita ranch in Brooks County. He was a rancher in both La Grulla and in La Encantada.
My father, Raul Longoria, recalls hearing stories about Ponciano's stubbornness. He recalled one story about a time when Ponciano was standing in a pasture talking to two other men. One of the men, Celso Villarreal, noticed that Ponciano was standing on a hill of fire ants and told Ponciano that he should move to avoid being bit. Ponciano, in his stubbornness, responded that the fire ants could not harm him and he continued standing on the ant hill while resuming the conversation. Though the ants bit, he refused to acknowledge that they were there or that they even bothered him.
Ponciano suffered an apparent heart attack while holding his two-year old grandson, Raul Longoria, in his lap. He died soon thereafter.
