I have compiled alot of info thru the yrs on early Baja families and have a problem with the Arce brothers -Sebastion and Jose Gabriel -1750s-1830s-sur and norte.....Crosby says Sebastion's son was the Jose Ygnacio Arce who was the "founder" of the Arces in Baja Calif. Norte,,,yet in Northrup's book, she states that Jose Gabriel Arce is the father of this Jose Ygnacio Arce who lived and had children at Mission San Fernando (Velicata), San Telmo areas of Baja Norte. I would like to get this straightened out for my records and tend to lean towards Crosby's records but want input from others. Crosby, I believe, had access to more records than Northrup and since his first area of expertise here is Baja California history I want to go with his info. HELP!!!
ALSO I am working on the Villavicencio family (Baja sur and norte-Jose Rosas V.) that is so tied in with the Arces of the same time period. Thanks!!!!
