My ancestors are from Orange Co and Los Angeles Co. early settlers of CA and Land Grant owners from the King of Spain.. I would like to contact anyone who is working on these lines to share what we have.
My direct Yorba line starts with Jose Antonio Yorba, a Catalonian soldier from Spain with the Portola Exp. Then through his son Bernardo, second wife Felipa Dominguez, their son Vicente, his daughter, Felipa F. Yorba, my Grandma. Her mother was Marriana Peralta, her father was Rafael and mother Caterina Manriguez.
On the other side, from the Culver City area, Felipa F.Yorba married Juan Farias, whose father was Jose Farias and mother Tomasa Talamantes, her Grandpa was Felipe Talamantes. They owned the Spanish landgrant La Ballona.
