The graves of Rhonita Miller and four of her children lie in a cemetery in LeBaron, Mexico. Surrounded by dozens of his descendants, Adrian LeBaron gave thanks to God as he prepared to celebrate Christmas for the first time since suspected Mexican drug cartel hitmen murdered his daughter and four grandchildren last month. The patriarch of a large family of U.S.-Mexican Mormon origin, LeBaron was thrust into the media spotlight when gunmen shot dead nine women and children in the northern state of Sonora on Nov. 4, sparking outrage on both sides of the border.

LeBaron, who has 35 living children, 87 grandchildren and a great-grandson, cried as he remembered his daughter Rhonita Miller, 30, whose charred body was found after the massacre in a torched vehicle on a rugged dirt track near her home. "We thank you for giving us the strength to withstand the things that have brought pain to our souls," the 58-year-old said in Spanish standing next to Shalom, Rhonita's mother.

Before the family sat down for a dinner of roast turkey and Mexican food, mementos of Rhonita and her dead children adorned his spacious hilltop home in the northern state of Chihuahua with a commanding view of surrounding farms and walnut groves. As the night ended, LeBaron sang a song to Rhonita in memory of their last dance at a Mexican celebration in September while Adriana LeBaron (pictured) and her children react.

Rusty cars, some riddled with bullets, sit in a police station in LeBaron. Mexico has arrested several suspects linked to the massacre, which investigators believe pitched the women and children into a dispute between warring drug cartels. Gang violence in Mexico has claimed more than 200,000 lives in the past 12 years.

"I'm happy to see them all play, but a part of me is dead, asleep," said Shalom LeBaron, one of four women to have borne Adrian children, including 12 of her own. At length, she raised her hands to her eyes, unable to contain the tears. "They took away their chance to live," she wept.

The LeBarons first came to Mexico in the early 20th century when their polygamist beliefs brought them into conflict with U.S. authorities. Ever since Adrian's grandfather founded the village of Colonia LeBaron in 1941, violent organized crime groups have been a threat to their farming activities, said Adrian (pictured driving past a statue of his father and grandfather in LeBaron).

Though the family prospered by growing walnuts, peppers and cotton, the rule of law in the sparsely populated arid expanses of the borderlands has remained weak, posing constant security challenges. Some have even taken to arming themselves. "Life isn't life if you're being threatened. My message to the world and to my children is that you have to fight to know that you're free," LeBaron said.

Migratory birds fly over LeBaron. Like dozens of his relatives, Adrian LeBaron said he will keep pushing the Mexican government until those responsible for the brutal massacre have been brought to justice. He believes Mexico must work closely with the United States if it is to get a grip on record levels of gang violence.
