The following is an article written for the Bustamante family reunion by my Father-in-Law, Jose Luis Sanchez of El Paso, Texas. It was originally published on May 27, 2000 for the reunion held in El Paso. This is a fascinating story of how Jose Luis’ grandfather, Manuel Almeida Martinez (photo above taken circa 1912), escaped almost certain death at the hands of the Mexican army during the time of Pancho Villa. Besides, with a title including “tequila”--it’s got to be an attention getter! Enjoy.
