I am looking for more information on the family of Merejildo Vigil born October 1848 in Chacon. He married Petrolina Fernandez born February 1865 also in Chacon. Their children were Jose M. born Jan 1881, Juanita born Nov 1884, Julian born Aug.1886, Cleofas born Sept 1889, Santiago born May 1892, Daniel born July 1894, Filomena born about 1910, and Crisencio born about 1917.
I would appreciate any information on this family.

ESQUIBEL, Emilio, son of Fernandez, son of Carlos Diego
I'm trying to identify my grandfather Emilio's ancestry. I thought I had found it in the great new mexico database, but it didn't jive with family history.
Emilio was born in 1894 in Mora county. His father was Fernandez (not Fernando) Esquibel, and his mother was Altagracia Quintana.
The father of Fernandez was Carlos Diego. Mother said to be from Picuris pueblo.
Family history said that Carlos Diego had travelled from the west and the north with his two brothers, Martin and Florencio. Martin settled in Tierra Amarilla; Carlos Diego in Mora; and Florencio in Mosquero.
Any information greatly appreciated.
Mil gracias,
hija de Alfonso

I am interested in finding info as to where to find my ggrparents Manuel Vigil m. Maria Lucia Gallegos in 1870 in N.M. I found them in the 1900 Census in Las Animas CO. Colo then by sheer accident I found them in 1800 Mora Co.La Junta Precinct No.11 in Boone Valley. Where does one look for them inbetween.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I am in search for my Greatgrandfather's real last name. His known name, John Babtista Apodaca, was correct exept for the last. He changed it in Aguliar, CO. His actual surname was a hard-to-pronounce Indian name.
All I know is that he was born in Ocate, NM in 1891 or 1892.
Thank you!
