By going to familysearch.org
and doing a search, I MIGHT have found some information about
your grandfather, although there are inconsistencies in dates (not unusual).
I found this baptismal information:
Felix Daniel-- on 5 June 1881 a baptism took place in San Francisco de Asis General Cepeda
Coahuila Mexico. His father is listed as Margarito Daniel and his mother as Petra
This might be the same man in the 1940 U. S. Census for Cameron Co. Texas
Felix Daniel, age 60, b. Mexico
Delfina Daniel, age 35, b. Mexico
Polo Daniel, male, age 18, b. TX
Delphina Daniel, female, age 14, b. TX
Juanita Daniel, female, age 7, b. TX
Francisca Daniel, female, age 6, b. TX
Was your father ever called Polo as a short for his name? The birth place could be a
mistake, but is the age even close?
Also at familysearch.org
I found a death certificate for Felix Daniel, but the age is
Felix Daniel, b. 18 May 1888 in Mexico; died Nov 1957 in Cameron Co. TX. His father is
shown as Margarito Daniel and his mother as Petra Martinez. Delfinia Daniel is shown as
the person who provided the information.
Here is a link to the findagrave entry for his burial information, which is from his death
certificate. However there is a photo of him.
