Passed down to me verbally by my grandfather.
My ancestor was a Spanish Admiral Ceballos. One of my Ceballos ancestors was an architect, there are still buildings of the Mexican ornamental type with a plaque with his name on it.
There is a town of Ceballos Mexico, can see it on Google earth, which my father and uncles visited. Nearby there is a ruin of a hacienda where my ancestors lived until escorted out of Mexico by Pancho Villa to the US border.
Also told that my ancestors place of origin was Barcelona.
