She had 91 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. The birth order of the children is uncertain. Source 287 states there were 29 children. 2. They lived on a small farm near Bisbee. 3. The 1900 Census records her name as "Serita"; perhaps this is a variant of Sarita or Sara. 4. The 1900 Census lists a son, Jose Maria, born about 1886. In the 1910 Census, there is a daughter, Jose Maria, born about 1888. She works out as a laundress. Perhaps a son and a daughter with the same name? 5.
