Leyba from San Luis Potosi, Mexico
Looking for information on Felipa Leyba who is listed as the mother of Anastacia Leyba who was christianed on 2/14/1836 (could be 1826?) in Vicaria De Bocas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico.Anastacia is found in the census of California in 1860 and 1870 as Anastasia(various spellings) Leba or Leva (indexed as Seva!) in Tuolumne Co and Mariposa Co.She may be the Anastacia Andrera that was naturalized in Mariposa in 1864, the same day and place as her son-in-law, Pedro Aguirre.She married a Mr. Melendrez.He may be related to Miguel Anario del Carmen Melendez(Melendrez?) Arreaga who was born in 1798 in San Luis Potosi and may be the M. Melendrez age 60 who is living in Tuolumne Co, CA in 1860, as is Anastacia.A descendant of Anastacia said her maiden name was Valencia.Her children are named Audelia, Nicolas, Angel, Simon , Phillipa/Felipa, and Guadalupe/Lupe.Lupe may be by a second unknown husband.The children don't take the name Melendrez until 1880.Anastacia died in Fresno Co, CA in 1910.Still looking for her in the 1880 and 1900 censuses.Would like to confirm her maiden name.Perhaps she is Anastacia Leyba Valencia or Anastacia Valencia Leyba?Also who is her husband?Have a lot on her children.
