Does anyone have any information about General Jose Maria Arteaga. There is a town in Michoacan Mexico that used to be called El Carrizal. Several times during the war of Intervention (1862-1867) Republican General Jose Maria Arteaga, Carlos Salazar, and Nicolas de Regules visited this town.
In 1889 the town was renamed Carrizal de Arteaga in memory of General Jose Maria Arteaga.
My grandfather was from that town. I can't seem to trace that far back to find the in-between information for any connection.
Does anyone have any information that can help me?
