Hi Lady Adie,
Thank you for the kind words. I also learned from unbiased research is that the Santa Fe area used to boarder "Louisiana Territory" making the area very close for inhabitants from France thus there is French ancestry in the area as well. In fact, Santa Fe used to be known by the Spaniards and the French Canadians and the French Canadian Indian tribes as "Santa Cruz de Canadá"; thus reflecting the Louisiana/French connection to the area. Canada/France had a major role in settling the west especially in Kansas before the whole territory was sold by France at the time. (The best real estate transaction in the history of the world) The French lacked vision and didn't want to deal with the Indians in the area at the time. However, the current states that were Old Louisiana are some of the best pasture land, which most French people love to do and that's farm. An example of borders changing history is that of the town of Las Animas. My ancestor once had land in Las Animas NM and that town ended up becoming apart of Colorado. The states that New Spain lost were Utah, Colorado, Arizona, Wyoming, Nevada, and California. England and Canada lost Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and the Montana's in the Oregon Treaty of 1840. ALOT of land and history was burned and lost in the Mid-1850's! In New Mexico, the archives were burned when the people from the East Coast bum-rushed the area, due to intense hatred from Andrew Jackson. He really hated Indians and he wanted a country that had access to two oceans, the Pacific and the Atlantic. He knew that a landlocked country is a weak country. He wanted Spain and France to not be in the areas of Santa Fe. But Canada remained friendly to Native American tribes and many Native Americans have Canadian ancestry due to the migrations of people between Louisiana Territory and Canada settlements. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Frank_bond_1912_louisiana_and_the_louisiana_purchase.jpg

Luis was related to the famous "Ël Mozo"
. There is much information on El Mozo on the Internet for you to read. I highly recommend the reading of our history in that time period. I have a picture of the St. Francis Catherdral since the town was centered around that church and is apart of El Mozo's fame. It is impossible to locate the burial of people from 1500's since they did not have metal caskets back then and just buried people either in the church walls, church grounds, or did a simple cloth burial and outlined the grave with rocks and a wooden cross which would be organic over time and eroded to the wind or vandelized by the resulting wars in later decades.
