    I found something that might be relevant, but I don't know enough about Latino naming conventions to be sure. I know the first surname is paternal, second is maternal, but I'm confused about Emiliano. Would he be Vargas Felix or Vargas Lopez? Would Isabel's married name be Vargas Lopez or would she take Emiliano's surnames? I'm also working with Google translate, so if any Spanish speakers can better translate... Relevant sections snipped by me:

    DOF: 06/07/1976
    RESOLUTION on recognition and titling of communal assets of the town of San Mateo, Municipality of Acaxochitlán, Hdo
    The 158 community members found in the census are:
    116.- Emiliano Vargas López
    DOF - Diario Oficial de la Federación

    There's an Isabel Vargas but she's Isabel Vargas Jimenez, and I'm assuming she's not the same woman. If our Isabel isn't listed in this document, does that mean she's not in Acaxochitlan anymore? Would she be counted in this census if she didn't own property/land?

    I was looking at the watch. It could be nothing of course, but I am reading R 1/2, and at first I thought it said Norwegianoa...or something, but when I zoomed in it looked more like Nouvagianoa...I am unable to make out the last letter.

    Brand: Bradley, Swiss made, Walt Disney production.

    It appears the mickey mouse design was fairly recent, since the one in 1972 had a more old-fashioned style to it, whilst around, cirka 1975, Mickey Mouse took on that pink face, and rounder shape that we are familiar with today.
    So this watch is from somewhere between 1972 and 1974 when she died.

    It definitely says Norwegian-something. It could be oah, oahl, ouh, ouhl, cah, cahl...

    I think the R 1/2 means refers to right wrist and the band size, but I'm not completely sure. If it was a right wrist watch, she was likely left handed.

    Her Independent Lock Co key is from Fitchburg, MA. The company closed in the 70s. Her jacket was also manufactured in Boston. I don't know how far outside Boston these items could have traveled. If they stayed close to the area, it could be where she was living before making her way out to WI.

    I don't think it has any particular relevancy, but to
    satisfy your curiousity, it would be;
    'Norwegian Oak' - there seems to be some support
    for thinking that that type of oak has that type of
    grey colour (like the watch band colour).

    That looks right, thank you! I agree, it's probably not relevant. These watches were mass produced. There are a ton of other Does with watches like it.
