Re: Robert Beltran b. 1902 Baja Ca. Mexico
My Beltran line is from a few generations back, but thought you might be interested. Maria Nicolasa Beltran, born ca 1757, San Miguel de Horoasitas, Sonora, MX married Juan Jose Lobo/Villalobo (spelled both ways) ca 1770 Sinola. Juan Jose Villalobo was born in Sinaloa, MX. He was a soldier who went into Alta California in 1781 with Rivera y Moncada. 1790 Census shows him and his family in Los Angeles. Maria died 5 Jun 1792 (may be burial date) in San Diego, Alta California. Juan Jose died after 1793, also in San Diego. A lot of families went back and forth between San Diego and Baja California several times, sometimes part of the family in one area and another part of the family staying in San Diego. The population flowed back and forth even after the war.
Have you found out any more about your Beltran family? Gotten back any further? I think that somewhere there might be a connection!
