You are right! A few days ago I received information on a sephardic Mexia family that emigrated to The Americas around 1740-1800. Several brothers settled in Honduras, one family in Nicaragua, another in Colombia, and the last one in Argentina. Only the sister, married to a Spaniard, stayed in Spain. All of them suffered some sort of religious persecution.

The family that settled in Nicaragua arrived with small children. The name of the wife was Hanna Zimmerman from Belgium. One of the children of these Mexias converted soon to Catholicism, was married three times and left 72 children, I guess, many of them out of wedlock.
