Perez, Cota, Rivera, Ruiz

Circa 1888 mining families from the state of Chihuahua Mexico were recruited to come to (Greenlee county) the copper mines at Morenci. The Perez and some of the Cota families returned to Naiquipa, Chih., Mexico. Circa 1911 these and other families from Namiquipa and Bachiniva who also had been to(or had family members)in Arizona relocated to New Mexico and the copper mining towns of Grant County. In the 1920's many of the Hispanic families who had worked the copper mines at Morenci were forced to leave that area and many of them also came to Grant County in Southwestern New Mexico.Iam seeking correspondance from anyone who may have knowledge of these families which may still remain in Mexico

No, I am not the Cruz Perez you have reference to. I am from New Mexico and now live at in north Texas. My father was born at (or in the vicinity of) Morenci in 1900 his younger sister was born there in 1902 and later, on date unknown the family returned to Namiquipa/Bachiniva area of Chihuahua, Mexico where the youngest of the family was born. (I viewed an LSD film did not find any Hispanic names in the 1900 U. S. Census for Morenci.)

Gabriel Rivera age 40 [son of Dolores Rivera and Maria Antonia Marin] and his wife Maria Petra Cota age 31 [daughter of Ygnacio Cota and Maria De La Luz Vasquez] baptized a daughter named Maria who was born Sept. 30, 1894. A daughter was born in 1896. Other children were born in the 1900s

Maria Petra Cota Rivera was a maternal aunt of my father, Jesus Cota Perez.

Surnames: Vasquez, Silba(Silva), Perez, Cota
My father's maternal grandmother Maria De La Luz Vasquez-Cota lived in the State of Chihuahua Mexico. My father's parents, Juan Jose Perez and Maria De La Luz Cota came to Arizona after 1888 but returned to Namiquipa, Chih., Mexico after 1902. They subsequently migrated to Monticello, Grant County, New Mexico in about 1914.

In 1885, at Bachiniva, Mexico, Maria Clara Perez (born about 1867), who was a sister of my grand father, Juan Jose Perez, married Gregorio Silbas (born about 1860), son of Barbaso Silbas and Juana Peres. They also may have come to Arizona.

Maybe we have a common relative who dates further back. What is your great grandfather's name? I'll list the first names of the Jimenez offspring that have been passed down: Joaquin, Andres Federico, Alfredo, Rudolfo, Ramon, Mateo Francisco, Gustavo, Teresa, Olivia, Claudio, Alejandro, Luisa, Maria, Ramona, Braulio. Do we have any common names?
What is the earliest date you can place your Jimenez relatives in Arizona, Mexico and New Spain? Did you know there are Jimenez's in Florence, AZ who have lived there many years? Have you researched the Morman Church Family History Library or the AZ state archives? I was able to find info. in those records. Let's keep in touch. We may be able to figure out the puzzle of the historical AZ Jimenez families.
