    Notes 
    • "My mother and my father, Erasmo, met in Texas while the 1910 revolution took place in Mexico. " [Guillermo Anchondo]

      Middle name from granddaughter Ana Elliott, who wrote: "I still remember my grandmother Emma, she played the piano beautifully. "

      We called her "Mama Emma" or "Mema" and she was great fun. She spoke English all the time, played the piano and loved to cook Scottish dishes. She had porcelaine skin and bright blue eyes. [Belina Garcia]

    The picture is labeled "Mama Emma Eva and Geo" so we assume Mama is their mother, Guadalupe Castaneda. Looking at the children's apparent ages, it was probably taken about 1914, probably in El Paso, Texas where they lived.
