I am doing a family search for my lost relatives. My grandmother's last name was Urbina. She claimed that her uncle was part of the Poncho Villa party. Grandmothers name was Julia (Julian) Urbina, born in Chihuahua Mexico 1907-1908. She had one sister. Name unknown.

My grandfather was named Roberto Montes, born in Tuluca, Mexico 1896-1897. He was suppose to be in the Mexican Military? He later changed his name to Pastor Garcia.

Help..any information or links would be appreciated!
Thanks!!!!

I have some photos of General Urbina before he "broke away" from Pancho Villa. It is a long, but fascinating story and can be found in several books. One book that details the Urbina story is "Pancho Villa" by Friedrich Katz, Stanford University Press,1998. I hope this helps.

I came across your message on ancestry.com that you are looking for relatives by the last name of Urbina. General Urbina is my greatgrandfather. He was part of Poncho Villa's party. I also am looking for other family conections.

Surnames: URBINA (Urvina in Mexico)
Just started looking at my family tree. My grandfather was Catarino Urbina (Urvina) from Chihauhau (1901?). Rumor has it that one of our distant cousins rode with Pancho Villa.

Contact me if you wish. We may be distant relatives.

My father, Raul Urbina, often tells us a story of his grandfather, Manuel Urbina who served under Panco Villa and was killed by him. Could this be the same Urbina?

To my knowledge there are no relatives with the name Catarino. What is the birth year of Catarino?
