My husband's Great-Great-Grandparents were Atilana Mendoza & Gregorio Garavito. I am estimating their dates of birth to be in the 1850s to 1860s. Their children were Pablo, Vincenta, Trinidad, Leocadia, and my husband's Great-Grandpa, Jose Matias Garavito (1876-1916). Atilana's son Jose M. was born in Mexico, was married in Romita, Guanajuato, Mexico, and died in San Bernadino, CA. While in the US, Jose went by the name of Jose Barajas. Although Jose gave his children the Garavito name, it wound up being spelled Garabito most of the time. My Mother-in-Law said that Atilana Mendoza was of Mexican Indian descent. I believe that Gregorio & Atilana were both born in Mexico. Jose Matias Garavito married Celsa (Selsa) Hernandez, and their children were Juanita, Lupe, Manuela, Santos, Porfiria, Juan, Francisca & my husband's Grandpa, Antonio Hernandez Garavito (1907-1996). Antonio Garabito married Carmen Lara. Please post or email me if you think your wife's Jose M. Mendoza may be related to my Atilana Mendoza.
