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
J. Jones (from Pennsylvania)
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.
he soon rose to the occasion, had the cows eating out of his
hand and earned the right to be called “Tio Harold”.
Laverne Gill (from Tennessee)
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.
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.
