I only have this info on the Riojas family. I have researched all the
records pertaining to Rumalda and Thomas and cannot find any further info
on her family. I remember her telling me of visiting her family in Mexico
and she traveled by train many times. She told me her family came from the
area of Piegras Niegras/N. Leon/Monterey and originated from Spain. She was
told stories of family in Spain. Her father had horses and sold to the
railroad and others and that is how she met Jesse Southworth and married.
They had several children who died young. She then traveled on her own to
Los Angeles and met and married Thomas E. Graden. I have his railroad
retirement papers and Rumalda does not give any info that will help in my
research. I do not speak the Spanish language and so have difficulty in
research. Because Rumalda was educated and spoke several languages and
traveled a great deal to Mexico, I am sure there must be some family info
around that I need to find. Rumalda talked and told of stories about early
days and family but I was so small and young that I don't remember today.
Would you be able to help in any way? Do you have info on your family that
you could send to me?
Thank you, Carroll.
My grandparents, Rumalda & Jesse

I know of the stories you were told by our grandmother and have some of the pottery she brought back from mexico. Are you the daughter of Mable, my fathers half sister?
