You are descended not only from Rudolfo Fierro, but from General Roberto Fierro, the pilot! General Fierro set an aviation record in the
Thirties by flying from New York City to Ciudad Chihuahua non-stop. He
later helped organize the Mexican air force. The airport at Ciudad Chihuahua is named after him.

My maternal grandfather was Esteban Fierro, but I don't know who his father was. Esteban had a brother nick named "Lalo", which I think was short for Laureano. I think he also had a brother named Candelario. He married Manuela Lozano, my grandmother. She had a brother named Marcos, who was killed in an auto accident around 1952.There is a photo of Rudolfo Fierro in Wikipedia, and he looks like I did in my thirties.

My mom (Romana Ruffina Fierro) passed away in 1973. My tia Anita is
In her nineties but she does not remember much as she has dementia. My grandmother married Manuel Pena after Esteban Fierro left her "To fight with Villa." (A lot a men used that excuse to take off!) My mom was born in Terlingua Texas, and they moved to the Chamizal in El Paso at some point.
Does any of this sound familiar?
