Carlos (Charles) Jaimes (Eames) was my husbands gg-grandfather. He married Donaciana Manchego (b; 1842 in New Mexico) He was listed in the 1880 Chaffee county, Colorado census as:
born in New York <1832>, single (he was divorced by this time), occupation "fisherman," his parents are listed as being born in Mexico. I have searched for years in the New York indexes trying to find a parent connection and now have run into a brick wall trying to trace a Mexico connection. Any clues?
