I have relatives in Fronton, Texas. I am also looking for my grandparents roots.My gparents were Praxides Guerra married to Luz Perez and they lived in Fronton until about 1925 or so. They moved from there to San Juan, Texas. Any information about Luz Perez, whose parents were Eulojio Perez and Antonia Trevino, is greatly appriciated. Her sisters were Maria Perez married to Valentin Guerra. Clotilde Perez married to Santos Barrera,and Paula Perez married to Toribio Rojas.I believed she had a brother Felix Perez but I am not sure.
If we go to the Valley I will try to visit Fronton and will asked questions about your surname Menchaca. I will keep in touch with you.

I called my mother when I saw your post. My mother's family is from Fronton. I don't know too much to help you out, but maybe this will help some. My mother is related to Santos Barrera. He was her mother's brother. My mother's name is Juanita (Garica) De La Cruz. Paula Perez is my cousin's (Fabian Garcia Jr. from Corpus Christi, TX) grandmother. My mother's cousin, Evita Sandoval lives in San Juan. She is very knowledgeable about the families from Fronton. Maybe I can ask her for more information for you.

Are you related to Belia Guerra that lived in Fronton, then moved to San Juan Texas. Supposely her family was one of the better off familes in Fronton. I think she had a sister name Luvina, or something like that. I am trying to see if any one has a picture of my mother Celia Guerra when she was young. My mother and this women were very close friends. My mother is now decease. My father name was Ruben Barrera. I was born in Fronton also, now reside in Corpus Christi, Tx
