La Familia Campos holds reunion at Walbridge Park


This Sunday, July 30, the Campos family will host another reunion at Walbridge Park, with an anticipated 400-500 in attendance.


Ancelmo Elisarraraz Campos (who was born on April 21, 1886 in Irapuato, Guanajuato, México) moved to Saspamco, Texas in the 1900s. Prior to the journey, he married Ascensión Herrera, who was born in Santa Ana, Guanajuato on December 18, 1890.


Rumor had it that Ancelmo looked so much like Pancho Villa that he had to leave México. The Mexican Revolution was in full swing, with Madera, Caranza, and Villa all wanting to be the new president, by deposing the dictator Porfirio Díaz.


Five children were born in Texas: Sylvia (1909), Angel (1910), Susie (1911), John (1913), and Santiago (Jimmy, 1918). Subsequently, the family moved to Ohio and settled in Toledo. 


In this 1958 photo, Ancelmo and Ascensión are seated in front of their home at 1847 Clinton Street, surrounded by their children (L-R): Carmen, Sally, Susie, Sylvia, John, Jim, Frank, Joe, and Ed.
