Facts and Notes

  • Name: In the 1860 census her name is spelled "Eduvigia." In the 1870 census, her name is spelled "Edugian." The 1880 census taker badly misspelled Yduvigen's name as "Urvigin." The most likely spelling for her name may be "Yduvigen," since that is the name used for the mother of the groom on Pilar Jr.'s and Octaviana's marriage record.3,4,5,6
  • Marriage: Pilar Miranda3
  • Birth: About 1840; MexicoB; In the 1860 census she claimed to be 20 years old and said her son Pilar was four. In the 1870 census she claimed to be 22.

    She indicated that she was born in Mexico, although she might still have been in the Dona Ana area when she was born since that region belonged to Mexico at the time. Many "Barela" families are listed in the 1850 census, although her name was not found.5,7,6
