bullet  General Notes:

My father always told me that our Armijo line was close to New México's last Méxican governor, native Manuel Armijo. I have yet to find the link. Salvador is the last tracable name of our the Armijo line.

The name Armijo came to New Mexico in 1695 with the children and wife of Joseph de Armijo. The sons of Josph de Armijo used the name Armijo de Durán, which includes their mother, Catalina Durán's family name.

How my Salvador is related to José and Catlina is a mystery for those of use who have research Salvador's family, but he has to be connected to them in some way. I have based his date of birth, 1748, on the Spanish census of 1790. Unfortunately the 1750 Spanish census only lists the number of sons and daughters. There is no way I can find a young 2-4 year old Salvador living with an Armijo father from this census.

Possible parents I have found, based on Salvador's age are:
1-Salvador Manuel "el Primero" Durán de Armijo and Maria Francisca Baca
2-Salvador Manuel "el Segundo" Durán de Armijo and Francisca Alfonsa Lucero de Godoy. This Salvador would fit with my father's stories. His son, Vicente Ferrer Durán de Armijo was the father of Governor Manuel Armijo. Could my Salvador be the brother of Vicente Ferrer Durán? This Salvador and his wife Francisca had twelve children, but I can only find eight of their children. Salvador and Francisca were married in 1734, so perhaps the records for their earlier children haven't been found. I suspect that my Salvador Armijo who married Francisca Torres may have been one of this Salvador's earlier children.
3-Salvador Manuel "el Tercero" Durán de Armijo

All three Salvadors above are the son's of Vicente Ferrer Durán de Armijo and María Magdalena Apodaca. Vicente was the son of José and Catalina. My Salvador may also be one of the other sons of José and Catalin, but by merely being named Salvador, it is hard to imagine him not being related one of the three Salvador sons of Vicente.
