Brawl in the Family

Beatrice Valdez has nearly 200 descendants, and nephews she's never even heard of.

[Beatrice's daughter] Teve remembers when her brother, Ernest, fought another third-grader in elementary school. Notes were sent home, and the parents of both boys showed up to assess the damage.

Beatrice and Fred arrived at the school. And so did Uncle Victor, Fred’s brother: Ernest had beat up his own cousin.

“We didn’t even know this kid existed,” Teve said. [Link]


Oh, that's a great story! It just goes to show the importance of family. There's a family that truly loves and supports each other. Very inspiring. Thanks so much for linking to it!

This family story could be mine...I once dated a friend of my cousin's from San Antonio, Texas, and it turned out that the guy that I dated knew another cousin of mine who also lived in San Antonio, who I had never met...My Gran had 8 children, and they all were Catholic...suffice it to say that there are still, to this day, many 1st cousins that I don't know...
