In Reply to: Unanswered Questions by Alberto Zarate of 184

There were some Zarates that came to the border towns in 1943 from El Tecuan, Guanajuato. One of them was the family of Agustin Zarate. They moved to Candido Aguilar, Tamaulipas where he acquired land given out by the government. Candido is next door to Valle Hermoso and Matamoros. He also was a wife beater. They say his wife died from all his beatings. I haven't been able to find out if he had any brothers or sisters. He had 3 sons (Benjamin, Juan & David) and one daughter (Maria Luz). He used to tell us stories of his runs with Pancho Villa and how bullets used to wizzz by him in the battles they had. In his olden days he turned relgious and moved in with his daughter and her family in Rio Bravo, Tamps. When she moved to Harlingen, Texas he went with her and he died there about 10 years ago. I think he was 89 when he died. If you think this might be related to your Zarate, I can ask Luz for more information. She has given me a lot on her current family but she is very vague about the past.
