      The Mexico DNA Project has Villa Results.
      Here is a link to the Californio page and Jose Villa

      The origin is R1b-U106 which expanded out of the area of the Eastern edges of the North Sea  in very ancient times many thousands of years ago and probably from eastern Europe before that. 

      Here is the entry:
      Presidio de San Miguel de la Horcasitas, Sonora>Presidio de Tubac, Sonora>Presidio de Tucson (present day Arizona)>Presidio at Santa Barbara (present day California)>Santa Maria, California. Haplogroup R1b-U106 or S21. Most common origin in Northwestern Europe. See these YDNA 9 marker match(es) to Northwestern Europe in this - YHRD database search. Oldest Ydna ancestor - Andres Villa m Daniella>Juan Jose Villa b.circa 1743 m Maria Paula Martinez. Juan Jose Villa, son of Andres and Daniella, a native of the Presidio de San Miguel de la Horcasitas, Sonora, was born circa 1743. Born at the presidio his father probably was in the military. From this presidio situated few miles north of Hirmosillo, Sonora, which was built to protect the colonists as they moved north from the interior of Mexico, Captain Juan Bautista de Anza started his long trek in 1775 to establish the proposed presidio and mission at San Francisco. In 1781, Juan Jose Villa was recruited by Captain Fernando Rivera y Moncada for the proposed Presidio at Santa Barbara. Because of the large concentration of native population in the Santa Barbara area, there was great concern for the many travelers who would be using the Camino Real. A presidio was the answer. He, his wife and son Vicente Ferrer Villa joined the other colonists and started on the second long overland trek across the hot desert following the Anza trail to Alta California. Contact: Marie

      Marcial Sanchez was a soldier in Anza's 1774 expedition to find a
      route to California from Sonora. He has a son born 1754 in Suamca.
      He appears as a godparent in 1760 at Guevavi. His wife was Vicenta
      Azedo. I have spent over 40 years getting to where I am now in my
      research and it is a slooooow process.

      I have been trying to figure out just where his origins lie. I have 3
      possibilities-from the south ie Alamos or southward; from the
      Chihuahua-Durango area or even possibly from New Mexico. I have done
      autosomal testing on 4 grand children of Marcial's only known grandson
      plus a couple of great grandchildren of the same grandson. I have also
      done the Sanchez Y.

      So far the well-researched NON Sanchez side of Baja California
      soldiers (Californios) seems to be confirmed (DNA) but I have very
      little on anything I can regard as the Sanchez line.

      Anyone have any luck tracking down presidial troops' origins in the
      area of what is now southern Arizona and very northern Sonora pre-1800?

      I have been scouring the Mission 2000 and DRSW databases but this was
      a tough time in history for all to be hangin' in that area in the
