WOW!!!!! I knew that I was descended from Pedro Jose Otero Duran y Chavez, but this is the first time I have heard his father's name. All I have ever known is that Pedro Jose Otero Duran y Chavez was an illigitimate son of an Otero and a Duran y Chavez and that he dropped the Duran y Chavez when he registered for marriage. Can you connect one of my Otero lines to Fray Cayetano Otero? My maternal grandmother, Mercedes Aragon, was daughter of Jose Gregorio Aragon and Elvira Otero. Elvira Otero was daughter of Antonio Rafael Otero and Doloritas Paiz(Pais/Paez/Paes). They were said to have been from Chihuahua, Mexico. They lived in Kelly, New Mexico which is five miles south of Magdalena, New Mexico which is twenty-eight miles west of Socorro.
