Classification: Query
Surnames: Benavides Benavidez Trujillo Gonzales
While researching the Benavidez line I find the name listed both ways Benavides and Benavidez. I'm looking for any info on the following:

Juan Benavides Benavidez, b. c1831, NM
married: Donasiana, about 1854, NM.
She was born, about 1834, NM.

Juan's other name could be Franciso/Francesco found in the 1920, Rio en Mido, Tesuque, Santa Fe County, NM census, age 88, wife Catalina, 50. This would be his second wife, if this is Juan Benavides Benavidez.

1860, El Rio, or Rio De Tesuque, Santa Fe County, NM Territory
Children of Juan and Donasiana all born in Tesuque are:
Martin, b. c1856
Valentin, b. c1859
Jose, b. c1860
Jeronimo/Geronimo, b. c1867, d. 15 Nov 1928, NM
Santos, b. c1870 (daughter)
Felisitas, b. c1872 (daughter)
Pilar, b. Oct 1875 (son), d. 9 Jan 1935, Santa Fe County, NM
Julian, b. 1880, m. Maria (maiden name could be Roybal)

Donasiana must have died when Julian was born, as she was not found in the 1880 census, Juan was listed as widower.

Jose, m. (1) unknown, m. (2) Maria A. about 1910 in NM.
Children of Jose and unknown all born in Tesuque, SF, NM are:

Child of Jose and Maria A.:
Leandro, b. c1912, Santa Fe County, NM

Jeronimo Geronimo Benavidez married Leondra Ortega 5 Oct 1896, St. Francis Catherdral, SF, NM. She was b. c1879 NM
Child of Jeronimo Benavidez and Leonrdra Ortega:
Jose De La Cruz Benavidez, b. c1900, Tesuque, NM

Pilar Benavidez, b. Oct 1875, Tesuque, Santa Fe, NM, d. 9 Jan 1935, SF, NM. He married Juliana Gonzales, 27 Sep 1897, St. Francis Cathedral, Santa Fe, NM., daughter of Martin Gonzales and Bictoria. She was born August 1879, NM. d. 8 Jun 1937, NM.

Gumersindo / Gomisendo b. 12 Jan 1919, Tesuque, NM, d. 17 Jan 1953, he married Maria Trujillo, b. c. 1922, NM, d. c1958, NM.
Trinidad, b. c1921, Tesuque, NM (female/daughter)

Note: Maria Trujillo Benavidez, married twice.
m. (2) Estevan Martinez, d. c1958 Texas, of heat stroke
Children of Estevan and Maria are:
