I am John E. Chavez, son of Ernie, grandson of Juan C. etc. etc. As you know the Van Wagners and Chavez families are intermarried (my uncle is Sam II Van Wagner, my aunt is Eunice (Van Wagner) Chavez. Lisaida (Ruuval) my grandmother, born in Conejos CO, was daughter of Ruybal & Manzanares.
PLEASE contact me. I have traced the Juan C. Chavez line back many centuries and am now actively trying to follow other threads/branches. I have a LOT of family data, in particular a spreadsheet with loads of family info. I used to live in NM and spent a lot of time in NM archives researching family history (and church, NM, Spain history). I have been to Trujillo, Spain ("Chavez-ville" !!) and my sister will be going to Chaves, Portugal in a few weeks. I will gladly the extensive family data I have.
I now reside in Chula Vista CA (San Diego area).
?? How are you connected to Juan C. Chavez, Samuel (I) Van Wagner and his wife, "Prima" Rebeca (Chavez) Van Wagner ??? I need more specific data on Rebecca - I may have linked her family back many generations - not sure.
