I recently found on familysearch.org that one of my ancestors is "Candelaria Payarit".
My father thinks there may have been related Payans in the family, but he is not sure.
So I am wondering if perhaps the "Payarit" is a misspelling or misinterpretation of the old record.Was Candelaria actually a "Payan" or "Payant"?I can find no other entries or search results for the name "Payarit".
Here is what I know about her based on the f's'.org records.My third g-grandmother was born about 1836 possibly around Satevo, Chihuahua, Mexico.She married Francisco Ochoa around 1857, and had at least two children, one of them being Panfilo Ochoa, my second g-grandfather.She died about 1890.
I would certainly appreciate any information.This may be a bark up the wrong family tree, but I gotta try.Thanks.
