Barraza family from Texas and Mexico

Not much is known about my Great Grandfather LEONARDO GUTIERREZ BARRAZA. Family legend says he was born about 1910 either near San Antonio, TX or possibly Zacatecas, Mexico. He is said to have been a laborer and a baker during his life. He may have had some BARRAZA family living in Michigan since two of his children were born there. He did, in fact, have children with Maria "Mary Vela who was born circa 1900 in Victoria, TX. The two were never married though. Their children were:

Sarah born 1924 in Detroit, MI
Jesus "Jesse" born 1926 in Detroit, MI
Jesusita "Susie" born 1927 in Houston, TX
Leonardo "Leo" born 1930 in Houston, TX
Guadalupe "Lupe" born 1933 in Houston, TX
Rosario "Rosalie" born 1935 in Houston, TX
Ricardo "Richard" born 1937 in Houston, TX

If any of these individuals look familiar or if you have a Leonardo Barraza in your line who is a mystery please contact me to see if we have a connection.
