These are my relatives.
The abbreviated genealogy is:
Samuel Santiago VAN WAGNER married Rebecca CHAVEZ.
Samuel was son of Charles VAN WAGNER (born in NY) and Manuela BARELAS (or Barela). Samuel was a Presbyterian minister.
Rebeca was the daughter of (Victor) Venceslao CHAVEZ and wife Pueblita (surname??).
Vensceslao was son of Rumaldo CHAVEZ and (Maria) Barbara TRUJILLO - this family was originally from Peralta NM and early on relocated to the Socorro area (most of the time in San Antonio NM). Rumaldo was one of the earliest Protestants in NM - a Baptist. Rumaldo also had a son Blas CHAVEZ who was a Baptist minister for most of his adult life.
Venceslao had a sister, (Juanita) RUFINA CHAVEZ who married Teodocio CHAVEZ - these were the parents of the Rev. Juan C. CHAVEZ (my grand-father), a Methodist minister. Teodocio was an early Methodist convert and preacher.
