I am researching my mothers side of the family. My maternal grandmother was Eloisa Acosta Alvear and her father was Lorenzo Acosta Jr. Lorenzo Acosta Sr. was born in 1884 in the Nacogdoches-Louisianna area. The origins of my Acosta lineage in from the Canary Islands via the Venezuela(Donaldsville) settlement. I'm lost after that. Lorenzo is a family name and has been in every generation of my family. My great-grandfather was a farmer and migrated from Nacogdoches to Kenedy, Texas in Karnes County. We are also related to the Martinez family currently in Floresville, Texas, but originally from Nacagdoches. Any fill in the blank info would be a blessing. Thanks
As well the Acosta's introduced to New Orleans are of Seraphadic Jewish lineage out of Spain and Portugal, via the Canary Islands.
