Thank you so much for the information, I didn't know how the Martinez name came about.
I have done some intensive research on the Martin Serrano name and have a direct line as far as Domingo Martin Serrano, as there is as yet no discoverd like between him and either Luis I, Luis II or Hernan II, but there is no doubt about his relationship to the progenator Hernan Martin Serrano who entered with Onate.
I am in the process of writing a Martinez family history, this history contains all the information about the Martin Serrano, encluding Sabastain, Luis I, II, Hernan I, II, Domingo, Blas, Pedro, Satiago, Martin de Jesus, my great grandfather Ricardo, grandfather Elimino, also is a chapter on Padre Jose Antonio Martinez of Toas.
Also some of the family through the daugters of the Martin Serranos, such as General Jose Maria Chaves of Abiquiu, and the Quitana broters that were killed at the Vega de Riano trying to settle a dispute between the Utes and the people of Abiquiu.
What I am looking for is stories about other Martinez family members that are descendants of Hernan, to be included in this Martinez family history. So if you know of any one that has information that they would like to share and have included in this book please let them know.
