Hello. I'm am looking for information about my grandfather.amy dad was born in Laredo,tx in 1909. At that time my grandfather Francisco Garza(born 1876) was 33 years old and my grandma Isabel Villareal(born 1892) was 17. By the 1910 census, Isabel and my dad(listed as Lino Garza in the census) were living in lareado and she is listed as divorced. My dad always talked of being raised up to the age of 10 or 11 in Browsville, texas area. My granddad and grandma had to have gotten back together after 1910 as they had another child ,a daughter together in 1913 -14. My dad remembers his dad and says he rode with Pancho villa. He also remembers working on the King's ranch as a water boy. My grandma left her husband around 1920 and went north to Indiana/illinois area. She remarried a Manuel Hernandez. I cannot find out what happened to my grandfather Francisco aftre that. My dad's sister said he did at one time in the 1920's come up north looking for his son. If anyone can find out anything about him it would make my day. Thanks for your time
