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 Trevi�o 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 Alcal� 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.
