Ruiz de Esparza
Thanks Bill for your words, well both of my Esparza lines are currently Francisco Esparsa (estimated birth 1828) and my other line is Matiana Esparsa (Est. birth 1832). My grandfather actually believes these two people are first cousins since all of our "families" would intermarry within our family and I too believe this. Anything is possible. I mean they both came from the same place and same time and lived in the same place which is Huanusco in Zacatecas. In the same ranch. I mean what are the odds. I think they came from Calvillo in Ags. Or near Ags city. Francisco Esparsa married Maria de la Luz AVILA. And for Matiana, she married Pablo Vasquez; they are the parents of one the six original founders of Hacienda La Luz. (Long story short the Zacatecaian Gov't gave money to Mariano Camino my 3rd grt grandfather to start up a Hacienda in Huanusco which he named La Hacienda de La Luz de Nuestra Senora Guadalupe ("La Luz") for short. The founders are Mariano Camino, Ambrosio Garcia, Leandro Vasquez, Rumauldo Lizalde, Mateo Velasco and Estevan Lopez. I descend from all of these gentlemen. Everyone on that ranch descends from most of these men since they intermarried. Thanks Bill. Hope you can help me on my Esparza quest.
