In the road from (San Andres, Chihuahua, Mexico) to Bachiniva, one of the men wounded at San Andres died, recorded Pancho Villa in his memoirs, and we buried him there before continuing to Valie unencumbered, for we had buried the silver, too.
A buried treasure story?
Yes, and it involves 122 bars of silver - silver taken by Pancho Villa when he ambushed a train near Chavarria. Pancho Villa never stashed anything that he didn't return for, according to reports of the legendary Mexican revolutionario. But research has shown that he did not recover the 122 bars of silver referred to above.
The saga began in 1913 when Francisco Pancho Villa returned to Mexico after a short, self-imposed exile in the United States.
