One of the towns you mentioned reminds me of Chacabuco, or Chaco. I think most times when you see migration like this it was basically for work. If you look at the history of Argentina you will probably find that they were recruiting people from other countries to help build railroads and develop crops or the like. You can search through recently posted records on this web site. Their names may have been spelled phonetically or spelled differently to blend in with the culture.

Click on "Historical Record Collections" and you will find many records and towns listed for Argentina. If you know the names of the parents, that might help you.
