      About 10 years ago I had exchanged emails with a young man by the last name of Milmo.  I think he was related to Laura Hickman Milmo I wonder if he is the same guy.  This guy was the one that referred me to Patricio Guerra O'hart which is also a Milmo.  He had infact emailed me a copy of their geneology atleast a rough draft of it. 
      Robert where do you live?

      Hello Chris,
      WOW, I must of opened a can of worms when i said all questions welcomed.  I will start off with Laura questions just to get a response and if i feel that he is interested to learn more about the history then I will give him the documentation that you provided Chris.  He seems to be a nice person and interested in his family history.  He mentioned that he has several boxes with documentation that he has collected for his book, I cant see us making it in his book but it would be nice to know the facts..
      Thanks for the fast reply and your help.

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your email, and it's good to meet you.  I'm also glad to hear that you're meeting a Milmo with an interest in our history.  With respect to the website you mentioned, it's definitely an interesting account of the Milmos.

      But, if you're going to meet with Alberto Milmo, I'd suggest taking a few documents with you in addition to mentioning our family stories about the Hale-Milmo connection.  In brief, I think most Hale descendants agree that they've heard that Thomas Robert Hale (the progenitor of the Laredo Hales) was raised for some time in the Milmo household in Monterrey before he left or was kicked out, and made his way to Laredo.  Thomas Hale was born in 1856 in Monterrey and died in 1943 in Laredo.

      In addition, according to Thomas Hale's son, Fidel (by way of his descendants) , Thomas Hale's mother was a Milmo, and her name may have been Sarah Milmo.  Patricio Milmo had a daughter named Sarah Milmo, but she would have been too young to be Thomas Hale's mother, so perhaps there was another Sarah Milmo.

      There is also a family story, according to Santiago Hale's descendants, that Thomas Hale was kicked out of Patricio Milmo's household as a teenager because he was caught fooling around with one of the Milmo daughters.  Some have even said they heard stories that a baby may have been born as a result. 

      Lastly, it's likely that Thomas Robert Hale's father was named James Hale, given how common the name "James" or Santiago" is among his descendants.  I mention these stories because they strongly suggest that the Hales and Milmos were related: almost all, if not all, Hale descendants have heard these stories or some variation from their parents, grandparents, etc.  So it's likely there's truth in them -- we just need to verify them.

      Here's a brief description of the documents that I think you should bring (all are attached).  Note that, although we're looking for documentation on the Hale-Milmo connection, we have at least one document (see below) that specifically mentions such a connection.

      --Thomas Hale's 1874 marriage (mentions Monterrey as hometown)
      --Thomas Hale's 1943 death (mentions Monterrey as hometown)
      --1890 biography of Patricio Hale (mentions Hale cousins in Mexico)
      --Milmo family history (mentions rich uncle of Patricio Milmo in Mexico)
      --Milmo Bank history (mentions Patricio Milmo brought family from Ireland)

      Let us know what he says...we just want to know if they've heard similar stories or have other evidence of such a connection.  I look forward to hearing from you,

      Chris Pineda, MPP

      Hello All,
      My name is Robert Garcia son of Aminta Hale Garcia.  I was working today and ran into a gentleman named Alberto Milmo we started talking and I mentioned the Hale last name and he started telling me the history of the Milmo family and he knew of the last name Hale.  He had many questions that I could not answer and he would like to join in and fill in any of the blanks that we may have.  He wants to write a book on the history of the Milmo family so I imagine he has done some research and may be some help.  He gave me a website to visit www.milmogroup. com.  I will be meeting with him tomorrow for lunch, if anybody should have any questions I could ask please let me know.
