About Albert Pengelly

Melinda and I met with Francine and Kimberly at our home in Aledo this past Sunday, June 12, 2011. During this meeting we shared many stories about their grand father, my uncle Albert Pengelly. One of the stories that they told was that my uncle Albert told them many times that he knew where there were veins of silver just flowing out of the mountains around Pachuc but he would not share the location with anyone because the government would just come and take it all.

Francine and Kimberly also shared a story about uncle Albert had a wood burning stove in his kitchen up until the time that his home was sold. All of his meals up that were cooked for him in this home were cooked on this wood burning stove.

I actually saw this wood burning stove in Mexico City this past October. When uncle Amber's home was sold, this old stove was given to Raul by Jean, Albert's daughter. Raul had the stove completely restored back to its original condition. It is simply beautiful.

My Uncle Albert Pengelly is credited with being a founder of soccer in Mexico. He and his brother William (Uncle Willy) were on one of the first soccer teams in Mexico. Back then it was called the Pachuca Athletic Club.
