Joaquin was the son of my g.g.grandfather, Joaquin Alejandro Bazan and is listed in the 1860 us census for villa del Bosque, in Valencia county, New Mexico, along with his 7 siblings, sister sarah (saraphia moved to Arizona about he same time).They moved there to help Hubble ( family relation )with his trading posts. I am descended from his oldest son, Jesus Maria Bazan. Joaquin Alejandro was the 1st born son of Don Ygnacio Ricardo Bazan (master weaver B. in Puebla, Mexico, sent to Santa Fe in 1807 to teach weaving (was the father of the Rio Grande Blankets). industry)and his wife Dona Maria Apolonia Gutierrez (daughter of Don Lorenzo Gutierrez, the heir to the Pajarito Land Grant purchased by his father Clamente Gutierrez of Spain (the "Sheep King".."the richest man in the Kingdom of New Mexico"). The Pajarito ended up with the Hubble family when her niece, the heiress married an american soldier. The Bazans descend from Don Alonso de Bazan, son of Andres de Bazan, secretary to the Duke of Albuquerque....closley related to Don Alvaro de Bazan III, the 1st Marquez of Santa Cruz, the most famous person in Spanish Naval history. The Bazans, for 16 generations, were the Lords and Masters of of the Valley of Baztan in Navarre, since 1135 AD...who's Baztan River seperates France from Spain, spilling out into the Bay of Biscay....and the Viscounts of Valduerna, etc. The Bazans that moved from New Mexico to Arizona, also moved there to join a Spanish speaking community settling there to get away from the anglo-Americans populating New Mexico who were often prejudiced against Hispanics.
