Armondo, Have you looked in any of the LDS baptism, civil registration, and marriage records that are online? I have found my own ancestor's records back to about 1730 by using these records.

There are no generally available census records that show the names and surnames of those living in Sonora until the 1930 census. All other existing census records that I have found for the years you are asking about only detail the numbers of people living in a specific area. No names were gathered during these census. One more thing.... There is definitely NO 1884 or 1885 census in existence! None was ever taken during these years, and there were good reasons for this. There was a war going on between the Mexican government and the Yaqui people. Any census takers that would have been roaming the countryside at that time would probably have been killed - perhaps by either side, as their questioning of people would have been very suspect.

The LDS films and digital records are your best bet.
