Zapata County Museum of History

2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.

 

Speaker: Alfonzo Uribe, The Bull, the Leopard and Lion,

 

The inspiration for my book came from my musings on the origins of the De La Garza Falcon family, one of whose ancestors, Alonso de Estrada, was reputed to have been Duke of Aragon.  I've been able to establish our family connections to many of the ruling houses in Europe and several interesting historical figures, some of whom appear in my book (along with our connections to them). But it is very important for me to state that without the research my uncles, Joel, Omar and Jorge Uribe, did, my project would never have possible. I had a huge advantage in possessing the story of our family in America, work that my uncles had devoted the better part of 40 years developing. My ambition was to study part of our story in Europe and present it to the family.
