Ellen Garza/Carlos

Ellen stayed on the River road for her whole life. She married Henry Terrell, a black cowboy who had a small ranch on the Road adjacent to the Matthews/Fagan property (part of the Miguel Manchaca grant). They had at least ten children.

Ellen Carlos married Harold Henry Terrell (1879-1905) on 24 December 1890. On the 1910 census, she states that 11 children were born to her and only 7 are currently alive.

Fred James (1897-1967)

Lilly (1900-1964)
Pearline (1902-?)
Bessie (1904-1981) Was this Betsy after her mother?
Mary (1911-?) Born after Harold Henry Terrell’s death; another father? Or perhaps a grandchild?
