  1. Moises, I like yout website. I see on this page that you are a descendant of Juan Bautista Perez Moya and Maria Guadalupe (you have a misspell) Lopez Prieto. He also married 2nd wife Luisa Pena and from that union came this lady Juana Maria Perez Moya (1776) who married my ancestor Miguel Nepomuseno Fernandez Vallejo, born 1774. Small world, primo.

    1. Could not find the misspelled word. Anyways, thank you for your compliment, By the way, is your Juana the same as the one that married Joseph Ascensio Marroquin or they are sisters?
