Re: Castruita line from Santa Clara, Durango
This is a correction to my previous post. I had posted the last names in the wrong order.
Are your Castruitas from Santa Clara related to the Castruitas from San Juan de Guadalupe, Durango? A great number of people from there are related to someone in Santa Clara.I am currently trying to find a Lopez family (specifically the father of Tomas, Rutilo, and Petra LOPEZ-Catarino) from Santa Clara.I know that both of these families originally hailed from Zacatecas (Tepetongo, Jerez) and settled in Santa Clara and San Juan de Guadalupe. These are some of the families which I know came together or arrived separetely but not too distant in timefrom each other in the late 1700s and early 1800s: Castruita, Lopez, Escobedo, Barron, Trevino (I have more).They have all intermarried. Get in touch with me. I think we might have common lines. I have some info on all of these lines.
