I have the surname Moroyoqui in my family tree. I was told a story about Dolores Moroyoqui who married Francisco Ochoa in Sonora.

I was told that they lived by a river there in what can only be described as teepees. They had no running water, etc, or any of the other things we make use of daily without a second thought. This would have been before about the early 1900s as their son was born in 1901. Dolores died in Los Angeles, CA, well over 100 years old.
