The Longorias from southern Brooks County have a ranching legacy. Some people say anyone interested in joining this family needs to prove their worthiness by showing they can handle cattle. As examples, I offer the following photographs.

 

Harold J. Jones (from Pennsylvania)

married Maria Estella Longoria Treviño in 1946.

Uncle Harold knew what was expected of him. However, he was prepared to make a quick getaway if the cows didn't like him.

But, he soon rose to the occasion, had the cows eating out of his hand and earned the right to be called “Tio Harold”.

 

Judy Laverne Gill (from Tennessee)

married Raul Noe Longoria Alcalá in 1990.

At first it was an old-fashioned stand-off, and Judy’s prospects of becoming my daughter looked bleak.

But Judy soon had the bull eating out of her hand. And within 10 years I would become a proud “grampa” 4 times over.

 

I welcome any comments, suggestions and questions. I also welcome any information you might wish to share about any person in my database. There is nothing I would like better than to “discover” new cousins and learn more about our ancestors and our heritage.

Replaced by modern technology years ago, the windmill tower still stands as a sentinel over the Eugenio Longoria Villarreal and Raul Longoria Treviño home sites in southern Brooks County, Texas.
