I'm sorry it has taken me so long to respond.
I talked to my father, Jose Lucas Negrete. His father's name was Agustin Negrete Negrete and his father's name was Agustin Negrete.
Agustin Negrete Negrete, my grandfather is also from Ocampo, Guanajuato. He had five siblings named Cipriano (spelling), Jose, Sabina, Maria, and Miguel.
My great grandfather Agustin Negrete had two sons, Gertrudes and Miguel, from his first marriage. After his wife's death he remarried and had six children.
Gertrudes had a son named David who everyone lost touch with after the revolutionary war. It was said that he was the father of the famous singer "Jorge Negrete."
My father said that once, while in Ocampo, they met a Juan and Jose Negrete at a nearby ranch Agua Gorda. They were not related to my father's family.
Since my grandfather's name is Negrete Negrete I need to find out about his mother's side of the family.
