Jose Antonio Amaya, d. 1844, Santa Cruz, CA
My wife is descended from Jose Antonio Amaya, who was born about 1807 (my estimate) in Colima, Guadalajara, Mexico and died in 1844 in Villa Branciforte, which today is part of Santa Cruz. Jose married Maria Antonia (Rafaela) Larios April 19, 1826, at Misson San Juan Bautista in California. She was the daughter of Jose Maria Larios and Maria Juliana Linares, who had 11 children in all.
We are trying to find out who Jose Antonio Amaya's parents were. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.
