Yes my dad is Bidal Zavala born on 27 april 1910. his dad my grandfather was Ponciano Zavala. And yes they did cross into maverick county at eagle pass. I have been to Corizzo Springs and Crystal City in Maverick and Zavala counties. About 50% of the phone book listings is Zavala's.We started a family tree about 8years but I can't find all my findings. they were on paper.
