Re: LUJAN/HERRERA LOOKUP FOR TRIBAL AFFILLIATION NEW MEXICO

In Reply to: LUJAN/HERRERA LOOKUP FOR TRIBAL AFFILLIATION NEW MEXICO by JC SANTIAGO LUJAN of 122

The long & short:
Pedro Leon LUJAN is the great-grandfather of Nicolas LUJAN.
He & his wife apparently adopted two Ute Indian boys sometime before 1870 during their old age.

1870 United States Federal Census for the Territory of NM:
Pedro Leon Lujan Abiquiu, Rio Arriba, NM 80 1789 NM Male
Ana Maria Lujan Abiquiu, Rio Arriba, NM 67 1802 NM Female
Jose Antonio Lujan Abiquiu, Rio Arriba, NM 14 1855 Pah Ute Ind Country Indian Male
Cayetano Lujan Abiquiu, Rio Arriba, NM 11 1858 Pah Ute Ind Country Indian Male

No other Indian blood is documented with this family. They were apparently Espanoles.
