Cota in L.A. looking for original Cota's from Sinaloa de Leyva, Sinaloa, Mexico

Classification: Query
Surnames: Cota Soto Ley Rubio Leon
I'm in Norwalk (Los Angeles), California trying to find out if anyone has family links to the Margarito Cota and his wife Ynes(Ines)Soto family from around Sinaloa de Leyva and Los Mochis. They had 19 children around the late 1800's and early 1900's. The story is told that 3 of the children went to California (Margarito II, Micalea, and ?). One of the 19 is my grandmother, Lorenza Cota she lived and died in Los Mochis if I'm correct back in the 1940's. I believe she was one of the youngest. She had 6 children. The first from a previous relationship. His name I believe is Alejandro. The other 5 where from my grandfather, a Chinese immigrant, Manuel Ley. Their children from eldest are Tomas Cota(deceased around the late 1970's)& a twin (died at birth), Ines Cota-Rubio (deceased around 2002), Maria Guadalupe Cota-Sholander(living in Norwalk, CA at age 82), and my father Juan Esteban Cota (living in Norwalk, CA at age 72). I know there are a lot of Cota's up and down California going back to Andres Cota and Angela Leon back in 1700's in El Fuerte, Sinaloa. Just trying to see if there are any connections. Thanks.
