Alex- This is outstanding. I came across it while looking for info on the Loya name. I recently found out my six times great grandmother was a Loya, Leonor, from Chihuahua. I don't know when she was born or died. She married Francisco De Irigoyen and they had a son (my 5 times great grandfather) Francisco Javier Irigoyen in 1720. Irigoyen is a Basque name, so I suspected that Loya may be too. I am very proud of my Basque roots. Thanks again for post!
