Looking for information on Lorenza Mendoza married to Benito Tovar

Looking for information on Lorenza Mendoza, wife of Panfilo Tovar, and mother of David and Elias Tovar. She died on 3 Feb 1916 in Guadalupe County, TX, at approx. 22 years old of an undisclosed illness, according to death records in Guadalupe County Courthouse, TX. Her funeral was handled by the Goetz Funeral Home in Seguin, TX, but they have no records before 1925. Panfilo died on 30 Jan 1918 at approx. 25 years old of Tuberculosis in Seguin, TX. My father Elias always told us his father Panfilo was buried in the Santa Clara Catholic Cemetery vicinity Marion, TX (close to Seguin), but death records at the Guadalupe County Courthouse indicate he is buried in Riverside Cemetery in Seguin. A binder in the genealogical section of the Seguin Public Library containing the names of the deceased buried at Riverside Cemetery lists him as an unconfirmed at Riverside Cemetery. I believe Lorenza, and not Panfilo, is buried at Santa Clara, and that Panfilo is in fact buried at Riverside. My father Elias was only about 3 and 5 years old respectively when his parents died, and I believe he may have been mistakenly told that it was his father who was buried at Santa Clara. I have checked the diocesan records in San Antonio and with the person in charge of the Santa Clara Cemetery about whether Lorenza Mendoza is buried in Santa Clara Catholic Cemetery, but have not had any success. I am also curious if my uncle Andres, who lived on Durango Street in San Antonio in the early 1960's was related to Lorenza. Would like information that might help me unscramble this puzzle.
