Thank you so much. This is definatley the family. There is a new name I have not heard of. Leonor Valdez (18) This might help me with my search for Virginia's late husband and his family,(Virginia nee Martinez). I am still stuggling with anything earlier. All I know is that Efren(9) was born in Rio Arriba. I shall keep looking. Thank you again!

I know it has been a long time since my last message but I have been unable to trace any more of this tree. I have reason to believe that virginia's husband died in about 1924, but this is not definate. Very greatful for any help at all as there are so many rumours to this side of the family and being in uk it is very hard to find anything. Thank you.

Surnames: Valdez, Martinez, Cox, Baca, Montoya, Carter, Scott
Where do we start?

I'm not sure if you know more than I do already.
One thing that does puzzle me. On the 1930 census

Esther Valdez. Is there a way I can find her
fathers details, as we were told that Efren Valdez
died about 1924 and she has not yet married Eduardo
Carter. As I said I don't have much more than this
to go on.

Virginia Martinez 31 may 1892 married Efren Valdez Senior
at 1893 died about 1924

Juanita Valdez 1920 still living Married (unknown) Cox
Children : Wayne, Bruce, Ike, (not sure of an others).

Efren Valdez 26 Sept 1921 Married Margaret (unknown)
Children: Efren Dan Valdez Born abt 1947, Michael Valdez
(died abt 1960)

Ester Valdez married Ernie Baca Both deceased.
Children: Judy, Cruz, Lillian, Teto, (about 6 children in total).

Genevieve Carter married Bill Montoya.
Children: I know of. Ginger, Gene, (4 children in total).
Ruby Carter married Walter Scott.

Children:
Dorothy and Donald

I am very interested in finding out more about Leonor,
it seems in one census it states Leonor is male another
female.

I think I'm just going to have to slowly keep searching.
I haven't given you really anything to go on. But sadly
this is all I know. But thank you for your help it was
so so kind of you to go to so much trouble.
I shall get there eventually.


With much thanks, J.
