If anyone come across this Family name in your research, any information or help would be appreciated. My Great-Great grandfather was Emitero Cedillos who was born in Tecolote, NM south of Las Vegas, NM to a Manuel Cedillos and Pabla Baca. Manuel Cedillos father is listed as a Cimon Cedillo and Francisca Molina who, supposedly were from Valencia, NM. I can't seem to make a number of connections on how Manuel landed up in Northern NM and how the name came to be spelled so many different ways (prolly census takers spelling them differently down through the ages). So if anyone has researched and as any other information I would be really...really thankful, if you would share.
Thanks in advance
Sedillos (spelled many ways!)
Well, as you can see, even an English word can be spelled more than one way if you read words phonetically.
I can't tell you how many Baptismal records I've read where the priest writes the child's name on the side of the record and again within the text of the record and spelled the name more than one way in the entry. (Probably many hundreds)
I have seen Sedillo spelled Cedios or with a Z. I finally gave up trying to stick to "one way". It doesn't really matter -- if you phonetically sound out the written name and come up with Sedillos (or Luzero or Montolla or Sanches) you are probably on the right track.
Anyway, there are many Sedillos in Lincoln County. The migration pattern seems to generally follow this pattern.
Santa Fe (early to mid 1700's)to San Miguel County - then some went to Lincoln by the mid to late 1870's -or-
Another group from Rio Abajo (Valencia and/or Socorro county) started moving to Lincoln County by 1868 (earliest baptismal records). The period of Mexican control of New Mexico has been the most difficult time period for me to research. The Spanish priests took great records, but something seemed to happen about 1840's (Gadsen purchase). I know that Lincoln County had land to offer people and many homesteaded there.
My Sedillo relative was Marcos Sedillo who was married to my great Aunt Beatrice Vigil. Marcos was from Manzano in about 1912. His parents were Juan Pablo Sedillo and Refugia Trujillo.
Jose Simon Sedillos bap. 28 oct 1831, age 4 days; son of Jose Ramos Sedillos and Ma Josefa Duran of Savinal; Godparents were Jose Benito Chaves and Maria Guadalupe Montoya is the only Simon (or Cimon) listed in the Our Lady of Belen Baptisms 1810-1851. No Francisca Molina listed

I was attempting to trace my former surname, ( Cedillos ),
to it's point of origin when i ran into your inquiry.
Though i've not seen it spelled with an S before, I was
pleased to see your message nonetheless.
My biological father, Florencio Marquez Cedillos, was born
in, Fabens, TX. in October of 1940.He is one of seventeen
siblings. He currently resides in, Las Vegas, NV.
Most of his family still live in and around Texas,
primarily in the Fabens, Ft. Hancock area.
Unfortunately, I've not met any of the, Cedillos, family
members therefore, I have little knowledge of the family
I wish I could assist you further in your research. Good
luck with your search.
In the course of researching my family name which originated with the spelling of Cedillo. I traced my origins in this country to a Pedro Cedillo Rico de Rojas who was an officer with the Juan de Onate expedition of 1598. You may find that your lineage in this country originated with this family. The expedition established present day Albuquerque and as far north as Sante Fe. As I continue my research I would be happy to exchange information with you.
