  • Note:
    In his obituary, his parents are listed as "Tomas Adame and Lydia Aguirre," and
    his deceased brother is listed as "Saul Adame." His father's last name was
    ADAME; his mother's last name was AGUIRRE. Among many Spanish-speaking people,
    a woman does not change her last name when she marries. Alphonso is listed on
    the 1930 census with his mother, his brother, and his sister; all three
    children have the last name ADAME, while their mother has the last name AGUIRRE
    (although the census taker garbled both names). His brother Saul was listed
    with the last name AGUIRRE in a 1946 document, but was listed with the last
    name ADAME at death on the Social Security Death Index. For whatever reason,
    Alphonso ended up using his mother's surname (AGUIRRE) as his surname. It's
    possible that as a young man he listed his surname as "Adame Aguirre" and that
    English record keepers recorded the last name as "Aguirre" and that Alphonso
    simply accepted it rather than battle over something that he saw as
