This is the Genealogy of the Tiburcio Reyes and Antonia Reyna. They both were from Matamoros, Mexico; they married and settled in Brownsville, Texas. It is here they had their children, and raised them.

November 28, 1993. Corpus Christi, TX.

I became interested in genealogy in 1985, after hearing my wife Janet Van Vleet-Reyes
discussing with her nephew Olin Gene Love about their ancestor's heritage and their Partial Indian
GrandMother, Rosa Brown-Van Vleet.

The start is somewhat incomplete, and I leave it to be research by a future
releative, or myself at a later date. 1. Pablo B-------: My great Grandfather, this death cerificate is unreadable, It is written in 1915
with horrible handwriting. 2. His Son Tiburcio B. Reyes was born in Mexico, Pueblo del Ganado.
Later he married Antonia Reyna of Matamoros, Mexico. They started their family in Brownsville, Tx.
The Children later migrated to San Marcos, Victoria, and Corpus Christi. Tiburcio, my grandfather
died in Corpus Christi, TX in 1915, at the age of 77 years, and is
buried in Holy Cross Cemetery. His last residence was 1109 San Rankin St.,
Corpus Christi. 3. Antonia Reyna, my Grandmother, was also born in Mexico, A birth cerificate of her
daughter, stated that both listed their birthplace as Matamoros, tamaulipas, Mexico. 1 Tiburcio and Antonia Reyna-Reyes: Children were all born in Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas, with the exception of Estefana and Severa Reyes who were born in Corpus Christi, Texas. This family made the move to San Marcos, Victoria, and Corpus Christi, Texas, in search of work, farmhands and industry labor, the year approximately 1982 and 1984.

I have provided he last info that I have on Tiburcio & Family, My paternal grandfather. and for some of you, he is your great or great great grandfather. Researching the U. S. Census o 1880: Texas: Cameron County, The City of Brwonsville, dated: June 24, 1880. I found the Surname Reyes, spelled Relles, which is a variation of the name Reyes, I found Tiburcio living side by side on the same street with the other "Relles." So I have concluded that the following "Relles" ae related and strong possibility that they are brothers: U.S. Census: Brownsville, Cameron County, TX Dated: June 24, 1880. NAME AGE PAGE: Relles, Secundino 25 #455 Relles, Tiburcio 36 #455 Relles, Agapito 44 #455 Relles, Pedro 55 #456 Relles, Inez 38 #456 Relles, Zacharias 20 #456 They are living in the same street. next to each other. They list Mexico as their birthplace. CAUTION: Texas became a state, after these Relles were born. Except for Zacarias. What, I am tryng to say is, prior to 1846, the Brownsville Area belong to Mexico. Researcheres need to prove these guys are related and same father. This Census is in the Central Library, Corpus Christi, TX. in the History Room. (upstairs.)

The best is here.- Enjoy. Don't forget Email me the latest in births, marraiges, and death.
