The Making of Mitt Romney
The Boston Globe
Miles Park Romney and his first wife, Hannah, had a child named Gaskell, the grandfather of Mitt Romney. Gaskell helped develop Colonia Juarez and the neighboring Mormon colony of Dublan. Gaskell (right), is shown with his son, George W. Romney (fourth from the left). George is the Mexican-born father of Mitt Romney. The family fled during the Mexican Revolution in 1912, when George was 5, losing their home and belongings and forcing them to build a new life in the United States.
