Hopefully you will find this information interesting even if it doesn't relate to your line. I am beginning to think this genealogy business is a bit like a 5000 piece jig saw with 100's of pieces missing and then every now and then another piece is found. Perhaps you may find a piece in the information above. There are another 2 parts to Movilla graveyard which I have not as yet searched, but I think I will wait until the weather is better as it is very cold and wet here at the minute.
Yours Anne.
