Surnames: Urquidez
I have read with interest on several families by the surname of
Urquidez. Most seem to stem from Sinaloa, Mexico. My ancestors by that surname, too, came from Mexico. However, the word is they came from Chihuahua, Mexico in
1867. The only persons I have reaching that far back are
Andres Urquidez born in 1820, and his son Ylario Urquidez born in 1860. I have no information as to the wife or other children of Andres. These two are first listed in the 1900 U.S. Census in Barstow, Texas. Ylario is later listed in the 1910 U.S. Census in Loving, New Mexico. His father no longer listed. Unfortunately, several of Ylario's children and grandchildren died as adults in their 30's and 40's, family information was not recorded or passed on to the next generation, nor were photos. I post this message in hopes that some descendants from this branch may read this and perhaps provide some clues to the puzzle. Ylario Urquidez
is my great great grandfather.

I have a Magdalena V(B)asquez born in Barstow, Texas in 1895 or 1905. Her mothers name is listed as Florencia Hurquidez on her application for social security. According to the 1910 census Magdalena's parents were both born in Mexico. I could not find the census records you were referring to (only Alberto Urquidez in 1920).Was the last name spelled differently; I would love to see the census records you were looking at, maybe you could give me a reference point. Let me know if you find a connection, and I will do the same. Thanks.

It never occurred to me that the last name Urquidez could also be mispelled as "Hurquidez." When I found the census
to which I am referring, I spelled it as "Urquides" because that is how it was spelled on my great grandfather's tomb. If you can't find the census with this info, let me know and I'll tell you how to get there. Are you subscribed to Geneology.com?

Its amazing how many different ways a name can be misspelled, isn't it. Thanks for the right spelling to find the census. I think I found Macario Basques and Florencia(Hurquidez?) on the bottom of the page after your Urquides family. It is very difficult to read so I need to try to find a better copy of that page. I am subscribed to Geneology.com, but haven't been there in a while. There would be a good possibility of a connection between our families, but I wonder how? How did you hear of what part of Mexico your family might be from?

My grandmother was the person to indicate that the origin of
my great great great grandfather was the same town as my
mother's which is Meoqui, Chihuahua, Mexico. She said she would here this mentioned in conversations while my great great grandfather was alive. This past summer I spend an entire week at the city hall searching for any clues. It was very hard for several reasons. First, the records on birth there only dated as far back as 1861. During the Mexican Revolution many record books or ledgers were destroyed. Secondly, the births were recorded by the first names only and I had to read the entire entry in search of the parents names. There were no indexes in these early books.
I found some Urquidez names, but not the ones for which I
was searching. I then looked into the Church records. I found one Andres Urquidis who had a daughter in Dec. 1959;
the one I needed had a son in Jan. 1960. I did find in a recently book on the history of that town the name Dionisio Urquidez, a soldier among the first military settlement in northern Chihuahua which later became Meoqui. Now that you gave me the "Hurquidez" spelling, I have a new search lead. I have also sent for a death certificate for Ylario Urquidez in hopes that I may find exactly where he was born.
I know there is another Urquidez clan from Sonora, Mexico. They are also have a website and a family tree on Geneology.com. May I ask if you are an Urquidez, too?

Urquidez is the maiden name of my husband's gg grandmother. I have been trying to trace his family line for a couple years. It has been very difficult to find much online. Not a lot of people searching the same family and very hard to find census records. I have just recently started sending for documents, that is where I found the Hurquidez name and that his g grandmother was born in Barstow. I will have to try to get a death certificate in hopes of finding the gg grandmother's parent's names. I have read about the other Urquidez family. I haven't seen them mention Barstow, and my husband's family is in Texas. Still anything is possible, and I will just have to see what I can find. I will try to keep in touch and let you know if I find a definite connection to Andres or Ylario. I hope you are successful in your search. I know how difficult it is to find the right pieces of information.

Surnames: Urquidi, Urquides,
I have a marriage record dated 23 June 1878 for Andres Urquides and Juliana Carrasco. Rites of Matrimony performed by Father Joseph Hoban of St. Joseph's Church, Ft. Davis, Texas.
I don't know if this is the Andres Urquides that you are looking for, or this may be his son. Also have a Cornelio Urquides born to Hilario/Ylario Urquides and Braulia Sosa on 27 October 1889 in Ft.Stockton, Texas.
My line of research is Maria Calistra Urquidi/Urquides, my grt-grt-grandmother. I believe these Urquides are related but I still have not found the definitive link connecting them to Calistra.
I hope this information is of use, good luck on your search.

Luis,
From where is your great great-grandmother, Calistra?
Do you know who her parents were and the name of her children? Who did she marry? I am trying to determine if
indeed we are related. The Andres, Ylario, and Cornelio you
mentioned are my ancestors.
