Plutarco married my great-grandmother Manuela Portillo on 1 December 1923 in Tucson, Arizona (see their wedding photo).
I previously posted about Plutarco and Manuela's 1929 visit to Nogales, their Barrio Viejo neighborhood in Tucson, and the family in the 1930 and 1940 US Census.
Plutarco first came to the US in 1910 with his father Vicente Campuzano. He obtained permanent resident status on 10 January 1929. We're very fortunate to have these records, as they help fill in the gap between his arrival in Arizona and the years between the 1930 & 1940 US Census.
A copy of Plutarco's resident alien border crossing identification card from 14 October 1945 is below:
Plutarco and Manuela regularly appear in the Tucson City Directory. A page from 1936 shows them at 1321 E. 11th Avenue in Tucson.
This picture is of me and my sister with Plutarco from about 1983 (such a bad picture of me, but the only one I have of me & my sis with him).
