Hello J. Antonio!
Thanks for the reply and my apologies for the belated follow
Its refreshing to receive a message from the Salido side of the
family (I assume Salido is your family name) and I will add
your indispensable information (Juan Gonzalez de Zayas
Borboa and Francisca Loreto de Quiros--his wife?) to my
growing genealogical database.
That said, Almadas and Salidos are crossed over through
marriage and through friendship several times over in Mexican
history, (you must know of the great friendship between
my ggg grand uncle, Bartolo Almada and his maternal
cousin, Martin Salido).
Let's see---Luz de Almada, the wife of the first Almada in
Sonora, was the goddaughter and ward of Don Bartolome
Salido, the wealthiest merchant in Alamos and Royal
Treasurer in that same city.
He married an Elias Gonzalez de Zayas, and her sister
was the mother of Luz de Almada (Gonzalez de Zayas being
the maiden name of the mother of these two Elias Gonzalez
What have you learned in terms of tracing the Salidos
back to Spain? According to the author Albert Stagg, the
Salidos were related to the Ducal House of Albuquerque (a
Portuguese name, just like Almada ).
Salido blood does flow through my veins, because Pioquinto
Almada--my ggg grandfather and brother of the
aforementioned Bartolo---was a Salido on his mother's side
(as in Trinidad Salido)
I so much would like to contribute information to your Salido
search, J. Antonio--please, anything I can do.
You mentioned Cevallos as a surname--are they interrelated
with the Salidos? (whom I understand originally hailed from
Chihuahua--but which town or city?)
Other surnames in my family tree are Bautista, Ronquillo,
Verdugo, Diaz Martinez, Andrade, Barroso, Crawford
What are your family surnames beyond Salido?
Thanks again for answering my email J. Antonio, and I
look forward to hearing from you.
