Message Board Post:
Hello, I am granddaughter of Elvira De La Pena,(Cantu).
Grandmother had 10 children and my mother was EVA and she lived in Ohio with my father.
They eloped from Michigan in 1950 and got married in Laredo, Texas. They eventually
settled in Findlay, Ohio. My Grandmother Elvira always referred to her father as papa
Augustin. I came to understand mercedez was her mothers name, but I could be wrong. I
know I have family in Weslaco. Grandmother had a brother in California, thats all I know.
She also has alot of family in Texas, De La Pena's in Rio Grande. Brothers and sisters
of her were: Magro,Amelia,Aurora, Julio, Emilia Silverio. Ring a bell? I have just
started my search. But I am going by memory as to what was told to me. I guess I should
start calling the Cantu's and get their info, since my mother passed away. Most of the
Cantu's are in Michigan. Could you send me a picture to my email address? I will do
the same. This is really fun, looking into the family! Can't wait to hear back!
Thanks! I am at aol.com
