Hi Rudy,

In trying to follwup on my Great Grandmother Francisca Orabuena lineage I researched all the Orabuena's in Arizona- I even did a tree for your family but couldn't find definatively who Francisca's parents were or where she fits in to the other Orabuna families in Arizona. She was born in Arizona about 1883 but her parents were from Hemosillo Mexico (documented in Census and death certificate). Here is what I have for your lineage:

Higinio Orabuena I
married to:
Teresa Galindo
Children of Higinio I and Teresa:
Trinidad- (Married to a De Palafox)                            

Higinio Orabuena II-       
married to:       
Trinidad Martinez (6/3/1904-2/23/35)Her parents were Trinidad Martinez and Matilda Daniel

Children of Higinio II and Trinidad

Gilberto b. 4/5/1927-5/22/1928

Jose b. 2/09/1935-03/10/1935

Rudolfo b. 5/29/1933- 04/02/2006

Erlinda died in childbirth w/ child b. 05/07/1930- 04/19/1947

I think we are probably related in some way- probably through the parents of Higinio I. We are probably 2nd or third cousins. I just wish i could confirm where my great grandmother fits into the orabuana family. She died at 29 of ovarian cancer in 1912.
