There is an Ignacio Leyvas in Calexico, California in the 1942 "El Centro California" directory
Leyvas, Ignacio (Andra) lab r426 Giles av Calexico
Leyvas, Magdalena r426 Giles av Calexico
Leyvas, Serapio V, lab r426 Giles av Calexico

Note... I checked the 1940 census for this address and it is occupied by the Luis Andrada family, not the Leyvas. (Calexico, Imperial, California, ED 13-1, page 4 of 32), but I did find them!

1940 Census
Calexico, Imperial, California
ED 13-1
510 Giles Ave
Leyvas, Ygaco, head, m, mex, 77, m, no, 0, Mexico, where lived in 1935: same house
Andrea, wife, f, w, 64, m, no, 2, Arizona, same house
Serapio, son, m, w, 42, s, no, 6, Arizona, same house, laborer, farm
Francisco, son (gave the information for the census), m, w, 33, s, no, 5, Arizona, same house, laborer, farm
Magdalena, daughter, f, w, 26, d, no, 7, Arizona, same house, maid, private home
Fierro, Dolly, granddaughter, f, w, 5, s, no, 0, California
Leyvas, Rita, granddaughter, f, w, 12, s, yes, 5, California, same house
510A Giles Ave
Munez, Teofilo and Yldefonso family
510B Giles Ave
Leyvas, Cornelio, head, m, w, 39, m, no, 2, Arizona, same place
Esperanza, wife, f, w, 23, m, no, 6, Mexico, AL, Same place
Bertha, daughter, f, a, 15, s, yes, 7, Mexico, AL, same place
Nicholas, son, m, w, 13, s, yes, 5, California, same place
Beatrice, daughter, f, w, 5, s, No, 0, California, same hous
Alice, daughter, f, w, 3, s, No, 0, California
Rebecca, daughter, f, w, 1, s, California

So, Cornelio married Esperanza after Maria. Esperanza is definitely too young to be the morther of Bertha and Nicholas, but is the mother of Beatrice, Alice, and Rebecca.
