Father was Joseph Marie Chaves born 1831 in Mexico/New Mexico died 28 April 1896 in Marion County, Oregon. His wife was Mary Ann Peong/Peon born about 1839 in Washington Territory (she was Indian) and died after 1900 probably in Marion County, Oregon. They were Catholic. They had at least four children. Rosa Lee & Rose (twins) born 6 May 1880, Joseph Marie about 1883 and Alexander Baptiste 31 Jan 1885. All children died except my g-grandmother, Rosa Lee.

Joseph also had a first wife named Alexia LaPratte born 15 August 1842. They had at least 3 children- Andrew K about 1866, Ralph M in Jan. 1877 and Rachel on 7 June 1879. Ralph married Cora O. Forrest about 1903 and had one son, Joseph John Chaves on 23 June 1903. Rachel married Frank C. Gay about 1899 and they had at least 3 children: Margaret- buried in Brooks, OR, George N. and Viola M. They may have moved to Montana.

Thanks for your help.
