My name is Alejandro (Alex ) Martinez. My mother was Tejeda Olivarez. Her mother, Antonia Tejeda was the sister of Maria Trinidad Tejeda who married Margil Arocha. I don't know if Margil Arocha had a previous ( or later) marriage to Juanita ?, but I do know he was married to my grandmother's sister Maria Trinidad.
Their son Ramon Arocha married Victoria Garcia (b 5/7/1908)d 6/22/1932, I understand shot and killed by Isabel Pacheco, daughter of Geronimo Pacheco, and related thru marriage to Victoria, over some rumors.
Ramon and Victoria had Genaro Arocha, Trinidad Arocha, Soila Arocha that I know of. Geronimo Pacheco was half brother to my grandmother Antonia Tejeda.

Antonio Arocha married Maria Feliz Tejeda, another of my Grandmother's sisters. Antonio's sister Juanita Arocha married my grandmother Antonia Tejeda's brother Pablo Tejeda. I believe Antonio Arocha's family had earlier married into the Seguin family but I don't have all of the connections for certain.

My mother's grandfather Secundino Olivarez, married to Maria del Pilar Enriquez, died before 1880 and she married Juan Leal. I believe my grandfather use to say he had a stepbrother (son of Juan Leal by his prior marriage) named Agapito Leal. By 1993, Maria Enriquez was already married to Juan Leal because I have a letter where both she and Juan Leal were asking for Antonia Tejeda's hand in marriage to my Grandfather, Jose Angel Olivarez.

I hope some of this information matches. Let me know if it does and maybe we can exchange other information.
