I was there way back when, in the '80's, I suppose. I was very surprised to hear that Dona Maria Luz Corral Viuda de Villa is still alive. When I visited the Villa home, I knew she was there and we kept on the quiet side to respect her privacy. She was old back then. I was imagining how it must be to have her husband's original "death car" in the same house. Even after all these years it is a gruesome sight. I'm glad she held onto her guns and stayed with the house.

I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD WHEN I WAS TAKING ON A FIELD TRIP TO PANCHO VILLA'S HOUSE, ME AND MY CLASSMATES WHERE GREETED BY DONA LUZ CORRAL DE VILLA, SHE DIDN'T ACTUALLY OPEN THE DOOR, SINCE SHE WAS IN A WHEELCHAR,, I STILL REMEMBER THE ORANGE TREES INSIDE THE MAIN GARDEN,,I WAS WAY TOO SMALL TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS AND IF I KNEW I WAS STANDING NEXT TO A PERSON SO BIG IN HISTORY I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD'VE ASKED,, SO ON JUNE 1977 I WAS FIVE YEARS AND 4 MONTHS OLD!

She was my grandfathers 1st cousin and my parents took us to Mexico to meet her. I don't remember much since I was just a kid, however, I do remember walking thru the house and seeing the bullet riddled car. Sra. Luz did sit down and have a conversation with my father and as so many people have said, she so graciously posed for a picture with our family.

Did Luz have a sister name Francisca?

I have been to her home three times while visiting my grandmother. I have such beautiful memories of her home and my grandmothers re-telling of the revolution and the man who once roamed the court yard of that house. I put my fingers in one of the bullet holes by the spare tire of his car,amazed how big the holes were around my digets. I had Doña Luz's book but my brother lost it I never got the chance to read it, what a shame..

Interesting comments. i am currently researching the Corral family name. My father manuel Jaquez corral was born in chihuahua,Chihuahua, in 1907 to Jose Jaquez and Sara Corral.My grandmother Sara was born in San Andres, Chihuahua in 1890, daughter of Hipolito Corral and Refugio Trevizo.Luz Corral was her first cousin.In 1986 our family visited san andres and stayed at the home of el professor, and local doctor Benjamin Corral.I am interested in hearing from the trevizo and corral family to help fill in some of the gaps.
