Published by AuthorHouseBooks
After discovering additional information pertaining to his paternal side of the family, author Christopher G. Peña revised his original book to provide the reader with a richly detailed account of each member of the Peña-Lara family, along with their respective spouses.
Both highly informative and engaging, The Peña-Lara Story: Revisited retraces the family’s roots that began in New Spain (Mexico), including the military exploits of the family’s patriarch, Lt. Col. José Emeterio Pozas, who served under Spain and Mexico. In addition, the story includes an account of the family’s life in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, the Peña-Lara’s forced evacuation of the city during the height of the 1910-1920 Mexican Revolution, the family’s assimilation into the United States, including the military service of six of the Peña-Lara sons during the Second World War and, finally, the family’s postwar years. It is a family chronicle that includes almost two centuries of history telling.
The Pena-Lara Story: Revisited provides the reader with a wealth of new and detailed information about the family’s origins, some of which was recently discovered during an exhaustive search through Mexican Civil and Church archival records, as well as many United States civil and religious documents. This information now enlightens – and contradicts – long-held beliefs about the origins and lives of the Peña-Lara lineage.
