I am the daughter of Charles R. Jojola Jr. and Maria S. Jojola. They live in Highland, CA. My grandfather is Charles R. Jojola Sr. and resides in Los Angeles, CA. His wife of over 50 years, Adelaide Jojola, recently passed away a while ago. My brother, Eric C. Jojola, recently moved to Virginia and stayed with my uncle, Rudy Jojola and cousin Kogi Jojola, and now resides alone in Washington D.C. My sister, Brenda E. Jojola, has a cabin in Arrowbear, CA. I live in Orange County, CA. All three of us are still single and happy.

I too live in Highland, CA and have descended from Jojolas. My grandmother was Juanita (Jennie) Jojola and her father was Juan Jojola. I don't see any names that correspond to my family but who knows. I don't know some of the children of my great grandfather's sisters and brother. I think there were 8 of them. E-mail me if you would like to talk on the phone or get together. I have extensive family in LA county.

My grandfather Robert Avila Jojola lived in Corona, CA at the time of his death in 2001. My uncle Desiderio Jojola and his son Desi Jr. live in orange, ca. My other Uncle Richard Jojola lives in Fontana, CA and has two sons Jason Jojola and Derek Jojola. I researched my family history and I know that my Great Grandfather Desiderio Jojola came from Bernalillo, NM and most likely the Isleta Indian Reservation. They had 17 children!! One of whom was my grandfather Robert. He as two sisters still living.. Annabelle and Elsie (who still lives in NM). I know there are hundreds of Jojola's in New Mexico and somehow we must all be related.. but the extended family is just too large to figure out for me. good luck.

Hi Richard,
I think you just found another relative. My name is Mary Ellen (Jojola) Barger. Your grandfather, Robert was my uncle. My Dad was Ralph Jojola. I live in Paradise, Texas, but I have lived in Southern and Northern, California, New Mexico and Nevada. Please email me and tell me about the rest of the family. Unfortunately we haven't kept in touch with much of the Jojola side of the family. The only one I ever kept in touch with was Lydia Castillano. She was my uncle Joe Jojola's daugher. Please feel free to email me at rockie004@sbcglobal.net or rockie004@msn.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
Mary Ellen, your long lost relative.

Well, This is your lucky day and you've hit the MotherLode!!!

I am first cousin to Ricky, Carla and Pat and Uncle Robert, their father is of course, my uncle. By the way...... your grandfather still owes me $50.00. Given that it's been about 50 years since he borrowed it, I'm thinking he now owes me a truck load of dinero!!!

Uncle Robert and my mother, Mary, were siblings.

I have photos of Uncle Robert at my mother's wedding when he was around 10 years old or there about.

Your information is a bit off. These Jojolas were all born in Sabinal. I've been working on our family tree for some time. If you're nice, I'll share with you. Also given that Grampa Jojola was 6'3" with green eyes, we're still wondering where the Isleta Indian came into play. I haven't been able to find the Indian connection yet but it may be there.

Have Pat contact me or you contact me. I live in Oregon and Pat and Morgan came up to visit me about 16 years ago. I can be reached at 503 743-3856. ibdoowop@aol.com. If I'm not home, please feel free to leave a message.

I have traced the Jojola's to Isleta. My great grandfather Juan Jojola had blue eyes. Many of the Jojola men married Spanish women. therefore, we do see alot of the family with green eyes.

That may be true but my Grandfather Desiderio born in 1887 in Sabinal and he wasn't born at Isleta. I had to go back to 1730 before I found an Indian link. Up until then, the family was in Sabinal then later Belen then further back in 1730 at Isleta. I have his birth certificate so I know where he was born. It also doesn't even say Juan Pedro Jojola was born in Isleta in 1730 or that he was Indian or white, just that he was Christened there at Isleta Mission Church. Doesn't mean he wasn't actually born there. I'm guessing Juan Pedro was Pueblo Indian. I just know where everyone else was born up to there. But thanks for your comments. On my Grandfather Desiderio's mother's side, Maria Peña, I got back to 1480 in Spain. How cool is that to have gone back so far? By the way, I'm quite sure there was inter marriage a number of times, it's just not always clear. Also, in the US Census documents, all of the Jojolas in my family were designated as "White". It shows that and other race designations on every person in the census. Have you read any of the cenus documents yourself? By the way, my grandfather was 6'3". Some Indian.......probably....... but mostly Spanish and the Indian was back a way. It is what it is. Makes no difference to me. I'm cool with anything. I have to say, I did get a shock when I found out Francisco de Salazar was beheaded in 1643 for being involved in the assassination of Governor Luis Rosas. No suprise........a beautiful woman was involved in a steamy affair although that wasn't the only reason he lost his cabeza. My ancestor didn't do the killing with a sword!!! Google it. It's a fascinating story. Not for Señor de Salazar and the other seven men, though, who all lost their heads. Apparently, the governor was not a nice person slapping the Indians and Pueblo Mission friars around. I guess they got the last laugh, though, didn't they?
