Just came across the Rio Arriba County NM Query Forum
Message Board while looking for something else related to Geneology. Even though your message was dated September 1999 I am replying to it.
Jose Julian Jaquez, Maria Paula Martin, Juan Joseph Jaquez and Maria Rosa Villalpando were related to my paternal Grandfather. There is a very interesting story about the life of Maria Rosa Vllalpando Jaquez who was taken captive
by Comanche Indians and remained in captivity for ten years.
There is a Jaquez, Jacquez, Jacques family reunion in Farmington, New Mexico every two years. The last one was this past August, and there were 153 people at our reunion dinner. This year it was only one day, but all the other years it has been a three day event. Our reunion in the year 2001 will be held in Colorado, in the San Luis Valley area. If you still want any more information about the Jaquez ancestors of the above mentioned names please let me know. One cousin has done a lot of research on the Jaquez, Jacquez surname and publishes an updated list to take to our family reunions.
