Born Satero Sierra ....

< Previous | Next >


Dear all,

Would please help me to explain the meaning of "
Satero Sierra" in the following context?

Satero Sierra March 22, 1921, in Joliet, Ill., Sergeant Sanchez's childhood was beset with hardships. His mother died of tuberculosis when he was two and a half years old. His father remarried five years later, but died in 1929, when he was shot outside a tavern. He and his older sister, Magdelena, lived with their stepmother, Joquina Sanchez, until she also died, in 1934. Both children then went to live with their step-grandparents, Fidencio and Belen Sanchez.

Thank you in advance!

    That's his birth name. He was born "Satero Sierra," meaning that Satero Sierra was the name given to him at birth. Later, he changed his name and became ??? Sanchez.
