Lauro Garza Marroquin was born in June 8, 1944 to Eulalio Garza Lopez and Dominga Marroquin Gonzalez. He is the third of six children.
Chances are that you have never heard about him and you will probably not hear about him from anyone other than me, Moises Garza, his fourth son. He is not famous, or rich. He is only a man that has lived and is still living his life. Whose only legacy, will be those he will leave behind. A legacy that we all should be thanking our parents for, since that legacy is us and has been the one of our ancestors as well. No other legacy will endure the millennial as this one has and will continue to endure. It is important to talk about him to better understand that men and woman like him have contributed a lot and are contributing to society without being seen or named, since a person’s life no matter how great or small will forever resonate.

Rancho Viejo is the name of the ranch were the Marroquines through my fathers side once lived starting in the 1880′s in Northern Tamaulipas, Mexico. This place is located near present day Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
The Marroquines in my family were originally from Allende and Santiago Nuevo Leon and I have traced them back as far as 1680′s. I have yet to discover why they left their native Allende Nuevo Leon to settle in Tamaulipas.
Pedro Marroquin, my fathers grandfather, was born and baptized in Allende and ended up marrying my great grandmother Maria Amalia Gonzalez in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico on Aug 27 1912. I have traced her ancestors as back far as the early 1700′s.
What is left of Rancho Viejo:
|Chimney at Rancho Viejo
This picture is of the chimney that is left from my great grandparents original jacal. According to my father his aunt accidentally burned it down to the ground.
The family then built another jacal about 300 feet in front of this one but only the chimney remains of that jacal too.
Still to this date Rancho Viejo continues to be property of the Marroquines and the vast ranch that once was managed from Rancho Viejo continues to be in the hands of my father’s cousins.
