John,Diego,Pedro,Caldera,Navarrette 2nd T added in 1716-1717 when we crossed in Juarez-El Paso Texas what do i want for this information when asked where you got it tell them you searched for most of it and that some you got from a cousin named Juan,Diego,Caldera,Navarrette/Navarrete the family calls me Pete
Ps give the others the information so they will know where we came from and where we started from as for the Indian in us I believe we have Mexica Indio were we Jews well everybody was according to the bible what the difference in our spelling of the name just depends what side of the mountain range we came from or who's doing the spelling
2nd T added in 1916-1917 as I said and thats OK
