Origin of Farias also from Coalcoman, Michuacan

My name is Esther Farias and I currently live in California. My Fathers name is Francisco Farias Magana, son of Carlos Farias he was born in Coalcoman, Michuacan but left at a early age to Tecoman, Colima. He tells me that all the Farias in Coalcoman were related and came from Barcelona, Spain during the Spanish inquisision. In Barcelona a great number of Mors settled and so Farias is originaly a Arabian last name. That's as much as I know but if anyone has a simmilar or different story please update me at
