I've just returned from walking the land of my grandparents with the surnames of Luna Herrera. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Of course, I was left with only tons more questions.

It is located within a very healthy walking distance from Cicacalco, but many of my own relatives (Lunas) came to settle from Tepechitlan.

Does anyone know about this "rancho"'s history? It is very large - and easily sustained hundreds upon hundreds of families back in the 1800's, but an exodus seemed to occur in the 1900's (my own grandparents came to escape the revolutionary war), but many more came to the U.S. for economic reasons.

Would love to learn how this incredible large parcel of land called "rancho aguajes" came to be....who were the original settlers, etc...

Acabo de venir de la tierra de mis abuelos, cuyos appellidos era Luna y Herrera. Era sumamente bello. Claro, a llegar me dejo con mas preguntas.

El rancho Los Aguajes esta localizado no muy lejos de Cicacalco, tengo entendido que los que vivian en el rancho caminaban a Cicacalco para los bailes. Tambien esta situado no muy lejos de Tepechitlan (donde la familia Luna llegaron) y de Tlaltenango.

Alguna persona sabe sobre la historia de este rancho? Es muy grande - y parece que mantuvo muchos familias durante 1800's, sin embargo durante 1900's muchos empesaron salirse a E.U. Mis abuelos eras unos de los primeros que nunca regresarons - se fueron durante la guerra de revolucion, sin embargo parece que muchos mas vinieron por razones economicas.

Me encataria sabe como este rancho tan grande que se llama Los Aguajes llego de "ser" - quienes eran los que habitaron la area, etc....

The Tlaltenango Valley is beatiful.

Do you have any San Martín y Estrada's or Estrada's in your family tree?

Yes I do...goes way back to early 1800. Prudencio de Herrera married a Manuela Estrada. I think he might have married her sister later - whose name was Paulina. Manuela and Prudencio had a son Luis. I am a direct descendant of this line.

My Great Grandfather was Agustin Mota Herrera son of Vicente Mota and Francisca Herrera My grandfather was Vicente Mota Raigosa from Los Aguajes. My Maternal grandfather Asencion Luna Haro from coculiten All ranches above I believe where part of Colotlan Jalisco. I am related to the Trujillo’s from
cicacalco. The Luna family later moved Los Reales Zacatecas other family was from Los Lunas also Close by. I hope Iwas of some help .

I have a branch of the Mota surname that goes all the way back to thr late 1600's --Tomas Mota marries Josefa Luna. The line goes down to my great grandfather Atanacio Luna Trejo who marries Florencia Herrera Corchado. No doubt we are related.

I have found that most of my Luna lines come from Tepechitlan.

Facinating that all the lands were once connected to Cuculiten!
