My father Juan Carlos Farias was born in El Paso, his father Juan C Farias was born and raised in the Piedras Negras,Coahuila Mexico area his father(my great grandfather)owned the Hacienda de Santa Cecilia in Coahuila Mexico and died defending Torreon Coahuila during the seige by Francisco Villa. That is what my dad told me before he passed away.
