My father researched the Rael name to Jose Alonso Rael de Aguilar. Maria Micaela Lopez was his second wife. They were the parents of Pedro Marcial Rael. The other information I have is that Alonso was born in 1660 in Lorca Spain. Lorca is in the south of spain in the Murcia province. This information came from a Urbano Ortega artical in the Taos News, "Compartiendo el origen de los Rael"
