Well, one of my great-grand father's brothers was Jose Maria Farias...

As far as I know, Juan Farias first made it to Mexico from Portugal around 1580... He lived in Mazapil, Zacatecas, and then he moved to Saltillo, Coahuila...
after that, I haven't found anything clear, but going back in my own branch, I've found that my family have lived in this area for many generations...
we even own an historic ranch, allegedly given to one of the Farias (possibly to Juan), when this area was first colonized. In this ranch, Miguel Hidalgo gave his last mass before being captured in Paredon, Coahuila, just north of my ranch...

*My name is Alejandro Heberto Farias Aguirre (1979)
Sisters: Violetta (1980) and Angelica (1993)
*My parent is Alejandro Heberto Farias Ayala (1944)
his brothers and sisters: Ma. del Socorro, Jesus María, Lourdes and Leandro
*My grand parent is Leandro Victoriano Farias Saucedo(1917)
his brothers and sisters: Ignacio, Alejandro, Ma. de la Luz and Odila
*My great grand-father is Ignacio Farias Rodríguez (189?)
his brothers and sisters: Luis, Miguel, Heberto and Jose Maria
*My great great grand-father is Leandro Farías ??? (187?)
