Hello J. Antonio:

Just curious: Have you heard of a book called "The

Hummingbird's Daughter" by Luis Alberto Urrea? This is

the story of the real life saint of Cabora, Teresa Urrea who

was a curandera for the Yaquis and Mayos in Sonora and

Arizona. (Soon to be a major motion picture)

"Urrea" like Salido and Almada, is a family surname from

Alamos, Sonora. Surely you must know of General Jose

Cose Urrea y Gonzalez de Zayas (related to Ana Petra

and Barbara Gonzalez de Zayas), and his ancestors

Mariano Urrea and Bernardo Urrea.

Miguel Urrea of Alamos married Justina Almada y Gonzalez

de Zayas (her father was Jose de Jesus Almada and her

mother was Rafaela Gonzalez de Zayas).

All the prominent families of Alamos seemed to be

interrelated, especially Los Almada, since many branches

married into other branches.

Thanks J Antonio!

Best Regards,

Peter Almada
