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..
