Jesus and Luisa Pena, Texas 1880-1950

I am looking for any information in reference to my paternal grandparents. I have limited information. I was told by a relative that my grandfather Jesus and his brother Oscar may have migrated to the USA from Spain. They were both light complected with hazel eyes. My grandmother, Luisa or Maria Luisa, I believe was a Texan born Mexican. Her maiden last name is Gonzales. I believe our family roots may have originated in Hebbronville, Texas where our family continues to own and manage many acres of land. Both of my grandparents passed on before my parents married. I believe my grandfather passed when my dad was a small boy and my grandmother died somewhere around World War II. She produced 9 children with my grandfather Jesus. In no specific order, Jesus, Antonio, Manuel, Luis, Sophia, Faustina, Rita, Maria Luisa, Angelina. After the passing of her husband, my grandfather, Jesus, she was then encouraged to marry my grandfather's brother, Oscar and produced 2 sons, Oscar and Ocatavio. I believe in total their were 11 children. As a child I remember visiting many cities including Hebbronville (the ranch), Laredo, Benavides, and most recently San Antonio where most of the Penas' live now. Unfortunately, all my aunts and uncles have passed with the exception of my aunt Angelina (Tia China). I am seeking any information in regards to my grandparents, their places of birth, dates of birth, parents names, siblings names etc. If you have any information or feel you may be related to our family, please do not hesitate to email me. Thanks!!
