There is no reference of any children. Maria Villareal must have been a widow or divorced from Porfirio Villareal.

a) Lorenzo Chapa Villareal, abt. ( 1911),

b) Pablo Chapa Villareal, abt. (11-20-1913)

5. Preciliano Villareal, abt. Circa (1861 – 1851)

Father: Unkown

Mother: Unkown

Spouse: Ma. De Los Angeles Villareal, abt circa ((1851)

There is no information that Preciliano was married a second time, however, it is known that he had other children. It’s believed that Preciliano migrated from Mexico, his place of birth, to El Encino, Brooks County, Texas in 1900 and was living with his Daughter Sabina Villareal de Rodriguez age 32, the wife of Ignacio Rodriguez 42 years of age, according to the March 17, 1920 census. Preciliano is listed as living in the Household as father in law age 62, which puts his date of Birth on or around 1858. Also living in the household were Ignacio’s children: Elena (11) , Candelario (9), Eloisa(7), Aparicio (14), Ignacio Jr (14) and a Sister in Law named Ladizlada Villareal (19) and a niece, Josefa Villarea age 14. Preciliano is listed as being widowed. He died in 6-3-1932 and is buried in the Antonio Villareal cemetery in Encino, plot 26, his date of birth is listed to be in 1961, but the census in 1920 list him as 62 years of age indicating that his year of birth was in 1958. He is buried next to Sabina Villareal (Plot 24) and Ignacio Rodriguez (Plot 23). Nestor Villareal, born 2/20/1894 and died in 12/20/1946, is buried in plot #25. There is no reference of Nestor being a relative of Preciliano, but they might be related.

Ignacio Rodriguez migrated to US in 1880 at age to since he is believed to have been born in 1878, as per the age indicated in the census. Sabina and Ladizlada were born in Mexico and migrated to US in 1900; their ages must have been 13 and 1 or 2, respectively. This indicates that both migrated with Preciliano to US during the 1900. There is no reference of the wife of Preciliano he was 42 when he migrated to US, he must have been a widow by time of his migration. Josefa Villareal age 14 must of have been born around 1906 in Star County, but ther is no mention of her father or mother. Since Josefa was Sabina’s niece and Ladizlada was too young to give birth, it is concluded that Preciliano must have had a son or another daughter.
