About Our Family Research


A land far away from the city of Juan Aldama, was Jalpa, a desolate place, where locals lived on the farms of certain estates. A group of villagers sent out a plea to The President of Mexico Benito Juarez. The plea was in writing that stated to set out from the Fort of Jalpa a 1000 "cordeladas" to the east, to the west, to the north and to the south. This land was now declared a private and government to the locals. Migrant farm workers settled in the area since the land was out for grabs. In this land there settled two families. The Salaices Clan that consisted of Salome' Salaices, her parents and two sisters Hilda y Libreda(not confirmed). The Carrillo Clan that consisted of Jesusa Carrillo, and her children Victoria Carrillo, Enrique Carrillo Carlos Carrillo & Jesus Puentes.


I can begin from where I know. The land was inherited through Salome's father to her after his death and to the two sisters. The Salaices gave birth to a daughter name Francisca. Francisca had 3 children in wedlock with Alberto Villa. Little Manuel, Ramon and Barbara were left farhterless when their father went to fight along side Pancho Villa during the Mexican Revolution of 1910. For unknown reasons Jesus Villa, brother of Alberto Villa, stayed during this truobling times. The dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz was coming to a bloody end, because Francisco I. Madero was running aginst him for the presidency. Diaz won, through Francisco's popularity, because he had him jailed. Then there was revolt to overthrow Diaz. Madero had an unsuccessful presidency because Mexico needed more reform and there was to many opposing groups. Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata wanted extreme reforms and went to raid New Mexico, in revenge for the treaty between the American President Wilson and Mexican President Carranzas, because the 1915 Treaty halted the export of guns to Carranzas enemies and Pancho Villa. Alberto survived the raids but about 90 Mexicans shed their lives to reform the constitution. Francisca Salaices had Cesario and Pablo with her lover and brother-in-law, Jesus Villa. In her wait for her husband word was sent ti her that Alberto was dead but time will only tell that was not true. The exact time frame is not known but he showed up to find out that life will continue without him. He latered died along side Pancho Villa in a raid. Pablo Villa, son of Francisca, never adopted his last name and took Salaices as his own. Pablo married Carmen Carrillo and had 11 children. The eldest was Maria Isabel Salaices, Clara Salaices, Rafael Salaices, Elviria Salaices, Siria Salaices, Cipriana Salaices, Barabara Salaices, Martha Salaices, Beatriz Salaices, Estela Salaices y Ismael Salaices.
