I just finished a thesis on Antonio Zapata who was an Indian fighter and Federalist cavalry commander on the Río Grande border during the Federalist war, 1838-1840. Among the Federalists was Cristóbal Ramírez, grandson of Cristóbal Ramírez and Matiana Hinojosa. This Cristóbal was the son of José Santiago Ramírez and María Gertrudis Serna.
This Cristóbal was a tough character...he was 59 in 1840 during the waning part of the Federalist War leading rancheros and Anglo-Texans against Arista's troops. After hostilities ceased in November 1840, Ramírez reconciled with the central government and received a commission of Lt. Col. in the Mexican Army and led men in fighting Indians.
Anyway, I thought some of Cristóbal's descendants might want to know this.
