Linares ~ Album 1









Linares lies a short distance from Hualahusies. As a child, Maria lived in Hualahuises and attended school in Linares. Here she became good friends with Maria de La Luz Salce, who later became Helena's Godmother.

The Salce family lived in Linares where Mr. Salce was a professor and the historian of the area. In recent years, his papers were donated to the University of Texas for their historical value of the local area.

Ma de la Luz owns and operates the local pharmacy located in the center of town. This has been in the family for decades.
