Teddi - Got Miranda's on my paternal grandmothers side, all from Sonora. Miranda is my father's mother's maiden name, all from around Oquitoa. I have some info on them if you want to discuss off-line. Phone and email below. You referring to Guevavi near the Az border?
Greg---wow-that's a surname I haven't run across much in the 35+ yrs I've been doing this.....
I am immersed in pre-Sonora/Sinaloa research at the moment, going in circles, spinning my head roundnround-almost at a loss plus trying to make some sense of all the FTDNA kits I am dealing with....so hoping for clues. I am scrounging thru my personal library, hoping to come across more musters and padrones I forgot I have...ANYTHING for a break in the big wall. I amaze myself when I start going thru my stuff and find books that I forgot I owned!
I am VERY STUCK on one soldier, Marcial Sanchez and his wife, Vicenta Azedo, in Guevavi (northern Sonora) in 1754. Finding records in that area during the 1700s is driving me loco. Those demons often peek thru and start telling me that it is a lost cause-give it up---BUT I can't do that!!!
My Sanchez Y37 recently matched 36/37 of a Miranda from the SAME area of northern Sonora and even tho' the Miranda contact only knows a little back to 1870, LOCATION LOCATION!!!!! In fact this guy married a woman from Santa Cruz (nr Guevavi) and they all seem to settle in Los Angeles in the late 1800s....I am waiting for the 67 results.... I offered to pay for this person's kit family finder and they did it!!! Now the wait is on to see if possibly some old matches pop up.

Teddi Montes - Hey, I am searching Chihuahua state also and am back to early 1800s but the trail has gone cold. If you run across the Pisaño surname, I'd appreciate a head's up. Known variations of this surname so far are Pisana, Pizano, and Pizana, any of which could be with or without the tilde. Furthest known ancestor back was found in Rio Florido (Jimenez), then Cd. Chihuahua, then Cd. Juarez. Targeting Parral next. Thanks.

I am back to Marcelo Montes b. very early 1800s in Sta Cruz Rosales (Chihuahua). Have not gotten any Montes lines back before 1800 in or near your area. Marcelo's son, Jesus, born 1842 San Geronimo (present-day Aldama), married Simona Saganaga (Basque). I've traced the Sagarnaga line back before the end of the 1700s in the Chihuahua area.
