Hi,
I'm Amanda Moya Sheppard. My mother is June Moya and my grandparents are John and Dolores Moya. My grandpa passed on New Years Eve 2001 and my grandma is kinda senile. Finding out our family history has been pretty tricky. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about Jose Remigio Moya from Clayton N.M.? As family legend has it, he was actually the son of a German fruit peddler and his mother gave him up for adoption to some Moyas in New Mexico in the mid 1800s. John's mom, Placida, is said to be Native American, but that's all anyone seems to know. If anyone out there knows anything about John C. Moya Sr. or Dolores Montoya Moya's heritage please let me know. Both families originated from New Mexico and moved in and around the panhandle before making it out to California in the 1950s.Thank you very much!
-Amanda Sheppard
