My name is Louis Graham and you were recently in contact with my sister (yxg3) regarding the Trillo family. I have done some family research regarding the Trillo family in Chihuahua. As noted in a previous email (dated 4-4-12), my grandmother was a Trillo before she married my grandfather.
A lot of the information we have is oral family history and some we have been able to verify. I want to share the information we have verified and hopefully determine if there is some relationship with Socorro Trillo.
My grandmother’s maiden name was Esther Trillo. Her father was Procopio Trillo, who during the 1890’s was a practicing doctor (surgeon) in the city of Chihuahua. Procopio did acknowledge being the father of Esther and did take a significant amount of financial and educational responsibility for Esther.
Oral family history indicates (unconfirmed) that Esther was in some way related to Miguel Trillo, a high ranking officer who fought in the Mexican Revolution with Francisco Villa. Our research found that Miguel Trillo had a brother named Antonio E. Trillo – who also road with Villa.
Esther mentioned several times, when reminiscing about her father (Procopio), that Miguel Trillo at one time had been wounded during a battle and had been brought to Procopio to treat his wound. Esther was present with her father and recalled him treating Miguel Trillo. She also recalled her father telling her that Miguel was related to her.
Hopefully, this information may be of help. I do have a question. Did Socorro, by chance, ever mention having siblings?
