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 Coyame, Chihiuahua; the descendents of Domingo Franco from Shafter, Texas; The descendents of Francisco Franco from Terlingua; and more recently in 2012 we encountered Franco's who are now scattered in the West but descend from the Colonel in the Spanish army, Antonio Franco, who came from Spain in the early 1800's and settled in a large hacienda in San Pablo Meoqui.
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. How Domingo Franco is related to either the Coyame or the Meoqui Franco's is not known but Shafter is so close to Terlingua where Francisoc settled and not too far from Coyame either.
Please send information and photos of the Franco's. Maybe we can unify them all in the future.
