where are you from? Our family is from Northern New Mexico but I know there are alot of Lovato's in the Southern part of Colorado in the San Luis Valley. My mother's name is Jessie but I suspect you might be talking about someone else. I do have some cousins that I don't know but their dad is still alive. I am probably not much help huh? Well, it is always good to investigate and meet other Lovato's through these forums.
