Hi, I'm Roger Alderete and I was born and raised in the Bay Area. My father (of the same name in spanish) Rogelio Alderete was born in Yerbabuena. His parents are Lisandro Alderte and Natividad Hernandez. My grandpa Lisandro had just one brother named Juan and sisters were Mercedes, Rosario, Luz, Amalia, and Aurora. Juan was named after his father. And THAT Juan had a brother named Cristobal. Cristobal was also named after HIS father who was the son of Santos.
I think it's easier to understand it like this (all are generations of Alderete's):

Daniel, Roger(me)

Rogelio, Juan, Dolores, Aurora

Lisandro, Juan, Mercedes, Rosario, Luz, Amalia, Aurora

Pascual (son of Cristobal, cousin of Lisandro), Bitervo (not sure of his father, cousin of Lisandro)

Juan, Cristobal

Cristobal

Santos

My dad's pretty certain that Santos was the first (and probably only) Alderete to move to Yerbabuena.

Just to make sure, we're talking about Yerbabuena touching the Sierra Madre Occidental right?
