My grandmother was Ventura's sister! My grandmother was Luz or Lucille Fuentes. She married Gabino Jimenez in 1930 in Crown Point, Indiana. My grandmother's father, Antonio, was killed in 1917 in an accident in Topeka, Ks. Lucille was born 19 Feb. 1912 in Leon, Guanajuato, Mex. Ventura was born in 1914, also in Mex. There was a brother, Cipriano - not sure when he was born. There was another sister, Antonia, born 17 Jan. 1917, in Topeka. Some time after Antonio was killed, their mother, Serafina, brought them to Chicago. Serafina Gomez Fuentes died in East Chicago, In. on April 19, 1938. Lucille died 19 Feb. 1987. I'm not sure when Cipriano, Antonia, or Ventura died.
I have been doing my father's side of the family off and on for a couple of years, but it has been a little difficult to get documents to verify information. I would be glad to share what I have and hope to hear from you regarding your grandmother. Please keep in touch.
