Hello! My name is Naomi Maldonado, and I am researching my father's family line. From what I remember growing up, my Grandfather Irenio Salazar was from Nuevo LEon. They lived on a hacienda called Ramirez. His parents were Pedro Salazar, and Crispina Tamez. During the MExican revolution, they mirgated to Texas around 1910. One of the stories I heard was that Pancho Villas guys were hanging around the border (rio grande valley) and my grandfather was about 10 years old, and these soldiers stopped at the farm my great grandparents lived on and demanded food and other things. They stayed the night, drinking around the campfire, and they half-jokingly threatened to take my grandfather Irenio to fight for Villa, and if my grandfather didnt go, they threatened to hang him as a traitor or something. IF this story sounds familiar, I hope to hear from some relatives. Thank you for your time. I have more stories to tell next time.
