User Request – Corrido of Victor Lopez General Teran, Montemorelos, Monterrey in Nuevo Leon

The following was submitted by Anthony Garza:
I am inquiring about my 2nd great grandfather who lived in the area of General Teran/Montemorelos/Monterrey in Nuevo Leon. His name was Victor Lopez (he was a concrete builder) and his wife’s name was Florencia de Ocio. The story goes in my family is that he was killed in an ambush by the police at a local restaurant near Monterrey. He was known to take the weapons from the corrupt police and store them at his house. After he was killed they threw his body at the doorstep of his wife’s house.My great grandmother (his wife) fled to Texas after that. Supposedly there is a corrido sung about him and I am trying to locate the song. If anybody knows any information please contact me! thanks. 

Any Information Please contact Anthony at anthonygarza08@me.com

Los Ebanos, Texas – Some Pictures

Here are some pictures of Los Ebanos, Texas that I took with my cell phone. I forgot the camera. Oh well.

I tried to take pictures of the ferry but due to our tax payer money at work, since they are building anew port of entry building, I could not get close to get pictures. The area was closed off. Anyone can use these pictures for non commercial use as long as they link back to www.wearecousins.info.

1900 Baptism of Maria Trevino Trevino, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1900 baptism of Maria Trevino, my great grandmother through my mothers side. She was the mother of Jose Fina Lopez, my maternal grandmother. For a very long time I could not get any information about her until I found her Civil Marriage Registration with Cesareo Lopez in Dec 21, 1915. She was born Jul 01, 1899 in Rancho Los Trevinos, Tamaulipas, Mexico and in Aug 04, 1900 she was baptized in Ciudad Mier. I have yet to find her Death Certificate and Family lore is that she is buried in Carrizales, Tamaulipas, Mexico which if family stories are true it is near Reynosa. If anyone has any other information please let me know. The following document lists her parents as being Hesiquio (Exiquio) Trevino and Maria de Jesus Trevino.
