I AM REALLY EXCITED TO FIND OTHER PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR RODOLFO FIERRO. ACCORDING TO MY FAMILY TREE RODOLFO FIERRO IS MY GREAT-GREAT UNCLE HE WAS MY PATERNAL GRANDMOTHERS UNCLE ISELA FIERRO SILVA,I KNOW MY GREAT GRANDFATHERS NAME WAS ESTEBAN FIERRO,RODOLFOS BROTHER. THEY ORIGINATED FROM CHIHUAHUA,CHIHUAHUA,MX. IM HAVING TROUBLE FINDING ANYMORE FAMILY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN RODOLFO FIERRO AND MY GREAT GRANDFATHER ESTEBAN.I DONT KNOW EXACTLY IF MY GREAT GREAT UNCLE RODOLFO, WAS DISTANT FROM HIS FAMILY INCLUDING MY GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER ESTEBAN. BECAUSE I CANT SEEM TO FIND ANYTHING ON RODOLFOS FAMILY. MOST OF MY GREAT AUNTS (HIS NIECES) THAT LIVED IN CHIHUAHUA HAVE ALREADY PASSED, SO HAS MY FATHER MY CLOSEST CONNECTION TO THE VILLA/FIERRO HISTORY. NOW I HAVE HEARD THE GREAT STORY THAT HE HAD DIED IN QUICKSAND AND THAT HE DIED IN FRONT OF HIS SOLDIERS,BEING LEFT TO DROWN BECAUSE OF THE HATRED THEY HELD FOR HIM.AND THAT HE DIED DROWNING AND SINKING FROM THE GOLD HE HAD IN HIS POCKETS,THESE ALL SEEM LIKE FOLK STORIES JUST TO SOUND MORE INTERESTING.FIRST OF ALL THERE IS NO QUICKSANDS IN MEXICO.
BUT WHILE TRAVELING FOR A BATTLE TO "AGUA PRIETA" THE FAMOUS DEATH OF RODOLFO FIERRO, THEY COME ACRROS TWO RIVERS,ALMOST SIDE TO SIDE BUT IN MEXICO BECAUSE OF THE HEAT THE WATER LEVELS LOWER AND SOMETIMES ONE WATER STREAM WOULD SLIGHTLY FLOW INTO THE OTHER,SO THE MIDDLE BETWEEN THE TWO RIVERS IS VERY VERY MUDDY, AND ALMOST THICK,STICKY CLAY LIKE MUDD. NOW FIERRO BEING THE BRAVE MAN THAT HE WAS,ATTEMPTED TO CROSS IT WITH NO FEAR.THATS WHEN HIS HORSE TRIPPED AND FELL ON HIM,NOW I DONT KNOW IF THE HORSE KILLED HIM OR THE SOLDIERS THAT WERE TRAVELING WITH HIM SHOT HIM. ONCE HIS DEATH WAS ANNOUNCED PANCHO VILLA SENT FOR HIS BODY. THIS IS WHERE THE STORY REALLY BECOMES UNKNOWN.WHAT HAPPENED HIS BODY? NOW FOR A TIME I WAS TOLD THAT HIS BODY WAS BURIED ALONG ONE OF THOSE RIVERS AND THE SOLDIERS MOVED ON TO THE BATTLES. BUT RECENTLY I HAVE HEARD OF THE MEXICAN AUTHOR,DR,RUBEN OSORIO. WHO CLAIMS THAT IN A TRIP TO CHIHUAHUA HE WAS VISITING A LOCAL CEMETERY WHERE HE WAS TOLD RODOLFO FIERRO WAS BURIED HE DIDNT INITIALLY BELIEVE UNTIL FURTHER RESEARCH WAS DONE AND PROVED IT WAS REALLY THE GEN.FIERROS TOMB. NOW HIS TOMB JUST RECENTLY HAD ADDED THE TOMBSTONE WITH HIS NAME.I WOULD LOVE TO VISIT HIM ONE DAY.BUT TIL THEN I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS/MY FAMILY WAS LIKE.
I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT THERE IS A SONG ABOUT GENERAL RODOLFO FIERRO,A TRADIOTIONAL SONG OF THAT TIME KNOW AS "CORRIDOS DE LA REVOLUCION"
