Looking for information on the family of Melanquiadez "Mike" Lopez Gutierrez and Lucia Pallan/Payan. Mike was born 1911, Monahans, TX and died 1977 in Ector Co. TX. He married Lucia Pallan ca 1940 and had 5 known children. Lucia was born 1912 Reeves Co. Tx, and died 1999 in Crane Texas. Mike, Ramon and Simon were the sons of Ohenio/Ojelio, Gutierrez (nothing known about him) or his wife.
Lucia Pallan, had siblings, Elias, Leonor, Costuelo, Angel and Juan Pallan/Payan, their parents were Benino Pallan and wife Maurisca, on the census it appears that they were born in Texas, this was around Reeves, Pecos, Ward Co. Texas. My grandaughters are the great grandaughters of Mike and Lucia, and I'm gathering this information for them, thanks for the help.
