Re: Sahagun/Mexico and/or Phillipines

In Reply to: Re: Sahagun/Mexico and/or Phillipines by Landon Sahagun of 133

My Grandfather, Nicolas Escoto Sahagun, was born in Ejutla, Jalisco, Mexico in 1910. Nicolas' parents are Ramon and Justa. From there the line goes back to Spain. Did you know there is a City of Sahagun? My aunt went back to Spain several years ago and visited ciudad de Sahagun. At the time she was there, the mayor was a Sahagun. Anyway, Landon, I'm going to check with the family to see if anyone recognizes your Grandfather, Guadelupe. Do you know when he was born? Cathy, I don't have any family with direct connections to the Philippines but, it all gets back to Spain. Were either of you aware of Bernardino Sahagun? He was a Spanish born priest (obviously no descendants here) who lived in Mexico from 1529 to 1590. He was featured in an article in the National Geographic during the mid 1970's. I look forward to corresponding with you both.

Ray.
