Surnames: Gardea, Olivas, Cheverria
I was just looking at an album a cousin, Yvonne Rivera, made about the Gardeas descended from Jose Simon Gardea and Maria Paula Olivas. I'd always heard from my mother, Julia, daughter of Carmen, who was the daughter of Magdaleno Gardea and Juana Cheverria, that Magdaleno was French, but I'd never heard about the earlier French connection. Fascinating to hear about all this! I'd also heard about the Tarahumara line, but not many details beyond that. My mother used to tell me that her grandfather, Magdaleno, was a wonderful charactier and used to dance around campfires in Los Angeles and tell stories about his life with the Indians. And I'd heard that the family fled an hacienda and migrated to the U.S. to get away from Pancho Villa raids. I have the names of Jose Leon Gardea's and Rosario Dominguez' children in this album:
Maria Franca
Maria Atilana Pilar
Jose Nieves
Jose Cruz
Jose Magdaleno Propspero (later married to Juana Cheverria)
Maria Pomposa Geronima
Jose Encarnacion de los Dolores
Maria Juana de Dios
Jose Trinidad Bacilio
Jose Urbano Felisiano
Maria Luiza Rayo
