He and Manuel were captured at an early age by the Indians. Julian became a paid civilian scout at Ft. Clark and acted as a Spy on Mexican Indians for both Col. MacKenzie and Lt. Col. Shafter. About 1876, Shafter offered a reward of $500 for the capture of an Indian in Mexico. Julian responded but broke the neck of his captive from lassoing him. March 1877, jailed in Piedra Negras as a n American Army spy. Shafter and troops surrounded Piedras Negras but found the Mexican Jail empty.

I am so glad to read about all of this history, my family is trying to trace our roots and have found that my grandmother Josephina Espinosa whose mother was Brigida Frausto is the daughter of Juan Frausto. Juan Frausto is the son of Gregorio Frausto whose father is Jose Victoriano Frausto. Any more information you might have would be great! jmj1993@gmail.com

I am related to Refugia Frausto-Longoria, the wife
of Julio (Julian) Longoria. Julio performed many heroic
deeds, like roping an Indian in Mexico for the bounty,
and performing spy duties for the US Army, but I have
searched the Congressional Medal of Honor rolls and Julio
Longoria NEVER was awarded a 'congressional Medal of Honor'.
Sorry!
