Col. Julio C. Escobar

We are looking for information on my husband's father, Coronel Julio Cesar Escobar-Ramirez. He fought with Pancho Villa in the Revolution under Felipe Angeles. He was originally from Santo Rosalia, the son of Manuel Escobar and Micaela Ramirez. He fought in Zacatecas and was photographed with Pancho Villa with a cannon during one of the famous battles. He lived in Juarez, Tuxpan, Mexicali, Mexico City, and La Paz, where he died and is buried. He was married to Enriquetta Fierro, my husbands mother from Juarez, but we know he had children from a previous marriage. He also did travel to the Middle East, China, and Europe, but we don't know why. He fought in the Revolution from 1911 until it was over. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge in La Paz. My husband was only 6 years old when he died, so he knows little else about his fathers life, except for the stories past down. If any one can help fill in the gaps, it would be GREATLY appreciated.
