Thanks for replying, Dolf. The names you mentioned do not look familiar except for possibly the Olivares/Franco one. I can't put my finger on it now but I have seen that combination before, possibly in Mexico. I will check some more. It makes sense as you mentioned, that some generations spread out to differing places and of course ended up in diferent places and continues to this day. My own Olivarez ancestors were here in Texas (San Antonio) where I live as early as 1853, my Great grandfather Secundino Olivarez marrying Maria del Pilar Enriquez Lozano in that year. The Enriquez Lozano's I can trace as far as Lampazos de Naranjo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico in the early 1700s, but Secundino I have not found yet.
There is a line, starting from Diego de Olivares , born abt 1547 somewhere in Spain and arriving in Mexico in 1567. Some Olivarez lines related to me (but not my direct ancestors)descend from Diego on down to current times. I believe Secundino could have come from that line but have not made the connection.. yet.
I appreciate your information and will keep comparing it. If my olivarez data is of use to you please contact me dircetly at email@example.com and I will be glad to provide it to you. The general movement of these Olivarez was from Veracruz, to Puebla, to Mexico DF, to Monterrey, then to the little towns along the Texas border of Mier, Camargo, etc and then across the border to every other state in the United States. I have Olivarez related folks in Dallas , Texas who insist these Olivarez first came to Spain from Portugal and then to the "New" world. What is your thought on this ides?
