My grandfather (on my mother’s side) Mr. Cenobio Vargas also came to South
Central Texas from Cerritos, San Luis Potosi, Mexico in the early 1900s due
to the political unrest in Mexico.   From listening to one of my Uncle’s he
was the first Mexican land owner in Fayette County (near La Grange, Texas).

My mother states he came over from Mexico on a train.

The Public Library in La Grange has a big black back in its Library about
early Fayette County..  and there is a picture of him as a young man.

I enjoyed the program “Children of the Revolution” very much on KLRN.   If I
could contribute anything, I would be more than honored..

Thanks for all your great programming..

“It is a time in history – important locally, in Texas, the United states and even the world- that is, perhaps, not as often recounted as other military conflicts. Yet however significant the Mexican Revolution may be to history, it is also filled with many resulting stories that are even less commonly shared in the public spotlight – until now.”

“Documentary puts positive light on those who came to United States.”
