Hola Nuestros Ranchos. Hope you all are doing well during these crazy times we live in.

So far, I've been able to complete the side of our Matriarch's Family Tree and establish connections to the past, but have found myself at a Brick Wall while researching our Patriarch's past.

I've been compiling notes since the late 80s regarding both sides, and have done a lot of research online since, viewing countless record slides on and MyHeritage, and "Googleing" in order to find the missing pieces of the puzzle to complete my Tree. But like he would say, "Nariz de Godornis."

My great-grandfather was Rito Pacheco Rodrígues, born according to a marriage dispensation record in 1871, in Hacienda de Lobatos, Valparaíso, Zacatecas, to José Sabás Pacheco Bueno and Serapia Rodrígues (daughter of Leandro Rodrígues, son of José María Rodrígues). Rito's grand-parents are listed as Petronilo Pacheco and Ramona Bueno. I've not been able to to find any other information on them, except names.

According to the story passed on from my great-grandmother Lorenza Magallanes Franco, daughter of Camilo Magallanes and Francisca Franco, he was hung along with other Villistas in Valparaíso circa 1916. She, along with my grandfather and his youngest siblings, personally witnessed his hanging. She died in 1949, but their oldest sons, Agustín, and Antonio, while alive, were able to corroborate this story. They too were almost killed by a Carranzista firing squad, but according to them and those involved, a last minute message from the Carranzista leadership, prevented them from being executed.

The Tree drawn by Rosendo E. Muñoz, interim priest at the Valparaíso Parrish in 1898, reads as follows:

José María Rodríguez
Leandro Rodríguez __1__ Cirila Rodríguez
Serapia Rodríguez __2__ Higinio Franco
Rito Pacheco _______3__ Francisca Franco
____________________4__ Lorenza Magallanes

A modified excerpt from another Tree:

Aniceto Magallanes
____________________1__ Luís Magallanes
____________________2__ Florencio Magall.
____________________3__ Camilo Magallanes
____________________4__ Lorenza Magallanes

I'm also stuck at Magallanes, because of conflicting Trees on that have Florentino Magallanes as well as Florencio Magallanes, and have Florentino listed as Camilo's father.

Believe me, if I could drive down to Zacatecas to do further research I would, but the way things are down there right now...

Hello Jesus,

Telesfora Gómez shows up with a different surname in some records. In those records her surname is Amaro. Her family comes from Guanajuato.

Hello Rick,

Thank you for the heads-up on the surname for Telésfora and her family's location. I appreciate that.


Hello Jesus,

I found a “José Leandro de Jesus Rodriguez Cortez” that May be your ancestor. This Leandro Rodriguez does have a father named José María Rodriguez and he is from Zacatecas.
More research needs to be done to clarify if the two “Leandro Rodriguez” are the same person.
