I believe this picture was taken on March 25, 1940 because Gabriel D. Tafolla, Jr. (#1, above) died in late 1940. The occasion was the Annual Tafolla Family Reunion on Gabriel D. Tafolla, Sr.’s birthday. The photographer was Judge Jimmy Tafolla; the photo was taken in Pearsall.

There are so many persons named Santiago and James that I have prepared what I hope is a legend, if not a disclaimer. The original Santiago (1837-1911) is not in the picture, obviously. Nor is he mentioned. His son Santiago, Jr. is not shown either, but his name is mentioned. Santiago Jr.’s son, James, is listed as James Tafolla, Sr. because he is the first one to use “James” as his name. His son also uses “James” but is listed as “James III” because that is how he is listed in family records. There is one more “James” but he is the son of Santana.
