Re: LOYA family-La Cruz & Camargo, Chihuahua

In Reply to: Re: LOYA family-La Cruz & Camargo, Chihuahua by Lori Sanborn of 544

I found information, that indicates that my great grandfather, was Preciliano Loya, who married my great grandmother, Benigna Portillo. Their son, my grandfather, Jose Loya Portillo, was born in 1877 in The Cienega de los Olivos, Chihuahua. He married my grandmother, Adela Giner. Her parents, were Bonifacio Giner and Porfiria Morales. My grandmother, Adela, was related to the general Prajedes Giner. Not sure how, but she used to visit him, when she would stop by to visit us here in El Paso. She was the one that mentioned Camargo. My grandfather, Jose Loya Portillo, was a caporal and would have cattle drives from all of the ranchers in Parral area, to Juarez. He later became in charge of the old bull ring in Juarez. All of my older relatives are no longer living. Hope this can help you. I will try to get information from the immigration dept. Thanks
