Hi Gloria, thanks for the reply.

What I know about Tomas:

from Tomas' son, based on what his father told him -

*Tomas did not know his father but the father was supposedly some sort of American Indian who, as a child, was adopted and raised by a Spanish family in or around Cleveland, Mora County (paternal dna is Q3, so the paternal Indian line is there...)
*Juanita had Tomas when she was very young - she was supposedly born about 1884
*Juanita (Tomas' mother) died around December 1927
*Juanita married or had children by a Lucero, Valdez, Arguejo and maybe a Gallegos (speculation was that Tomas' father might have been the Valdez...but no one knows)
*Tomas' son met at least one of these people at Tomas' funeral (of course, he didn't take names because he wasn't really interested at the time)
*Tomas birthday was in December

from Tomas' WW1 draft record:

*he was born in Dec 1899 in Cleveland, Mora Co. NM
*his closest living relative is his mother, Juanita A. Sanchez who is living in Folsom NM (1918)

*I have Toms in 1920 in Colfax Co, NM with his wife (Inez/Agnez/Nacita/Inacita) and first child (listed as 31, but that's a mistake..)
*I have him again in 1930 with his wife and more children in Walsenburg, Colorado (listed as 32, closer to actual)

There is a Juanita Armijo in Union county in 1920 but who know. A lot of what I'm doing right now is debunking theories. Yes, anything you come across would be so appreciated.
