I am a granddaugher of Francisca Armendariz Fraide, born April 2, 1887 in El Valle de San Buenaventura in Chihuahua, Mexico.In my research I have found all our direct line Armendariz ancestors in Baptismal and Marriage records in the same place, Santa Cruz de Rosales, Chihuahua, Mexico, all going back to about 1777, or maybe before.The earliest Armendariz ancestor I found was Jose Armendariz, father of Jose Miguel Armendariz who was born about 1777, and died about June 10, 1837.He was great-grandfather of Francisca Armendariz, my grandmother.The members of researched generations had seemingly large families.
Jose Miguel Armendariz married Maria Martina Sanches Hernandez, born about 1794, died about July 29, 1838.Their children were Jose Jesus, Baptized Feb 1, 1807, recorded Santa Cruz de Rosales; Saturnino, grandfather to my grandmother Francisca, he was born about 1810, married Gregoria Nunes or Nevres; Clemente, born about 1814; Nicolas; Reducindo, b. about 1820; Luis, b. abt 1823; Teodora; Maria Josefa, b. abt Jul 18, 1833; Francisco, b. abt 1837.
All above recorded in Santa Cruz de Rosales, Chihuahua, Mexico.
Francisca, my grandmother, married Berardo Fraide in 1904 in Clifton, Arizona, and had a family of twelve.
