Hi Vanessa. I'm a Montanez too and my family is fron Juarez Chih. I know my grandmother (Francisca Montanez) moved to Juarez from Madera about 6 months after giving birth to my father and she gave him her last name because she was a single mom. I'd like to know more about this and also know if we have some kind of family link. Please send me an e-mail and let me know what you think!
