On 16-January,1900,Bernabe'Blea(my great-grandfather)son of Pablo Blea and Maria Zeferina Toledo(both deceased)married his first wife,Margarita Chavez,daughter of Juan Chavez and Dolores Otero(deceased),at Nuestra Senora de la Inmaculada Concepcion Church in Tome'-Valencia County,Territory of New Mexico(New Mexico did not become a state until 1912).
Bernabe'Blea and Margarita Chavez had three children - Juan,Ernesto and Zeferina(Seferina).
Ernesto Blea never married nor had any children.He is buried in the Peralta Catholic cemetary in Peralta-Valencia County,New Mexico.
Juan Blea(named for his grandfather,Juan Chavez)married and had at least three children,possibly more.My mother remembers the names of only two of them-Odelia and Macario.
Mom thinks that she remembers my dad mentioning a sister by the name of Rita(which is short for Margarita-named for her grandmother,Margarita Chavez).
Zeferina(Seferina)Blea(named for her grandmother,Zeferina Toledo),born about May or June of 1910,married(possibly to a Padilla).She moved to California with her husband.Unknown if she had any children.
Zeferina(Seferina)Blea,daughter of Bernabe'Blea and Margarita Chavez,may be the same Seferina Padilla who is listed in the Califonia Death Index as having been born in New Mexico in 1910 and died in October or 1974 at age sixty-four in San Diego County,California.
Margarita Chavez died some time in 1910 not too long after the birth of her daughter,Zeferina(Seferina)Blea.
I would appreciate very much any information regarding any of the people mentioned in this posting,most especially Zeferina(Seferina)Padilla.
Thank You all very much for your time and attention.
