I think Jose Romo de Vivar is my ancestor. The research that I and others have done suggests he was born in San Felipe in 1625, then married to Juana Solis y Calahorra in 1644 in the Presidio de Conchos, Chihuahua. Another source, the Chihuahua Fondo Colonial records, say they were married on 12 July 1650 in San Bartolome, Valle de Allende, Chihuahua. The Presidio was in the Valle de Allende. The birth and marriage records both state that Jose Romo's parents were Diego Romo de Vivar and Maria Rangel. Another record states that Jose Romo went west to Sonora. Another researcher has him in the Pimeria Alta (in Sonora) in 1695 when he was sent to pacify the Pima Indians. This could have been a son of the same name. This same researcher has Jose Romo, born 1625, with 3 sons: Geronimo, Simon and Jose Gabriel born between 1675-1678. Although it is possible for a Jose Romo born 1625 to have 3 children between 1675-1678, it seems to me that to be in active service as a captain at age 70 in 1695, is a stretch.

Jose Romo de Vivar founded the town of Bacanuche, Sonora. A Geronimo Romo de Vivar, married to Lucia (or Luisa) Martin Bernal, had a son, Jose Antonio who was born in 1707. His birthplace in unreadable in the IM, but it was in Sonora. My 6th great grandfather, Salvador Ygnacio Romo de Vivar was born in Bacanuche, as was my 5th great grandmother Maria Rita de los Dolores Romo de Vivar y Escalante whose birth date was probably 1747. My task right now is to see if Salvador Ygnacio is a brother of Jose Antonio, and both were sons of Geronimo Romo de Vivar. Or if Salvador was a brother to Geronimo, or aany other Romo de Vivar in the Bacanuche area.

Any thoughts or information on the above would be appreciated. From Salvador Ygnacio to me, Jose-Maria Merino Arvizu, I have documented and sourced.

I thought about translating into Spanish but it seems that most speak and read both languages, so I decided against it for now. Si a alguien le dificulta entender el ingles lo traducire.
