my family from the ramos side is rooted in one of the original mier settlers (Jose Juan Antonio Ramos) and my family at some point in the 1800's moved from the mier area into starr county and some how up toward brooks county and the vicinity, this would have been around 1900's (1905 on). My grandfather and father were born there and I believe there is still existing family in this area. My family was in the cattle business and I believe that somehow that they ended up in that area as a result of it; I have not fully figured it out though. Yet, I still have family all over the Rio Grande Valley today. If there are certain names or dates please send me an email I'll be glad to help if I can.
