Grijalva Family in Sonora around 1850

I am looking for information on my gr-gr-gr grandfather who lived in Sonora around 1840s. Our oral family history suggested that my Gr-Gr grandfather Simon Grijalva was stolen by the indians about the age of 11 around 1851 and sold to a family in New Mexico. He later was reunited with a brother named Leandro when Leandro traveled to NM. Both brothers remained in NM. However, we no nothing of the family in Sonora. Some family members have suggested that they originated in Hermosillo, but we don't know. If anyone runs across any info on the parents of Simon and Leandro Grijalva born between the 1830s and 1840s in Sonora, please respond to this message or e-mail me at
