This photograph taken in 1899 of Luciano Franco, son of Colonel Antonio Franco, and his family. It was provided by William P. Franco. William's father, Luciano is the baby in the photograph.
It may end up that over time we will find that the Four or Five Franco lineages are all part of one Franco family but today no one knows how they are all related. There are the descendents of Crispín Franco from
Today there are Franco's who trace back to Coyame, which is not far from Meoqui. Perhaps they are related. The Coyame Franco's are descendent's of Crispín Franco and have a strong presence in Pecos, Texas and have had family reunions in Colorado City, Texas.
The descendents of Francisco franco have an oral tradition that the Franco's came from Spain in 1802 and settled shortly after that in San Pablo, Meoqui, Chihuahua, Mexico. There are some family members who remember a photo of Franciscio in military attire with "El Coronel Franco" written on the photo. He may have been in the Mexican army. Maybe being in the military was a family tradition.
There are records of many Franco's in Meoqui in the 1800's. This makes it seem likely that Francisco Franco may have been related to the Antonio Franco Lineage. Since, Coyame is not very far from Meoqui on the way to Ojinaga and Presidio, It would not seem far fetched to consider that Crispín Franco is related to the Meoqui Franco's.

We were on vacation for about a week. I am happy to report that new material for Familias de Terlingua continued to come in during our absence. We will be updating Familias de Terlingua daily so you can enjoy all the new material.
Check every time you visit Familias de Terlingua on the first page of Familias de Terlingua. The right hand column called "What's New" will tell you of the additions and other changes as they happen so you can find new things easily.
Thank you all of our Contributors for making the first week of Familias de Terlingua's existence so successful. So much has happened since we started posting on September 29, 2009, it seems to us like Familias de Terlingua has been around a lot longer. We are off to an incredibly fast start.
We update you on changes on the upper right hand corner of the first page so you know what is new. We will be on vacation for about a week and not have internet access. So we will not update Familias de Terlingua until we return.
We have added a page, Libros de Terlingua, that has three books that some contributors have told us were of interest to them. They have links to Amazon.com so that if you decide to buy them through the link you will become a contributor to Familias de Terlingua to help defray the costs we incur.
But selling books is not the main purpose of Familias de Terlingua. So the main purpose of the page is to create awareness of other sources of information relating to Terlingua. You may decide to check the books out of the library.
By the way Juan Manuel Casas, the author of one of those books shown on the page has posted a comment in the Family Discussions. Check it out.
Note that it is the intention of Familias de Terlingua not to take stands on issues but rather to provide a forum where they can surface and inform us all. So we welcome Juan Manuel Casas' thoughts on how Terlingua history has been presented. If you get curious enough, read his book and tell us what you think.
