My paternal grandmother Rebecca Mejia (de Cervantes)

My paternal grandmother was a mysterious woman, I know she was born 26 November 1925 in Mexico (probably Mexico City). She and her brother (name maybe Carl or Carlos) were left at a Catholic orphanage by her parents, and they told her they would be back but never returned, when she was 8. In the 40's she was married (possibly twice) and had four children, we don't know where they are, or if they are still living. Their names were:

Julio Alfonso Ramierz born 1942
Ayda Ramierz born 1945
Davito Sanchez born 1949
Benjamin Sanchez born 1951

On Jun 2, 1954 she was married to my grandfather and they had 5 children.

In the 1990's she told my mother about her children in Mexico (her other children had no idea, they were mostly raised by their paternal aunts) and that she wasn't Hispanic (although she spoke fluent Spainsh and her children were raised Hispanic) but that she was full-blood Apache and her parents were probably killed for being Native American.

Any information would be helpful, her parents names might have been Javier Mejia and Rachel Cervantes (both born in 1899)
