Our family tree will include the following names: Westcott, Hampton, Fletcher, Hornsby, Armer,Leyva, Lobrano, Anclade, and Gomez. We have a great deal of information on Westcott ancestors, but are in need of info on all other names. Particularly need info on Leyva family. Dionecio Agapito Leyva came to New Orleans from Acapulco, Mexico. His Father was Simon Leyva, Mother was Beatrice Gomez-Leyva. Had several brothers and sisters. We know he left home at age 14, rode with Pancho Villa, was captured but rescued by a lady because "he is just a child". Married Florence Mamie Lobrano of Louisiana, had one child, Ramon Dennis Leyva. Died in New Orleans in 1952. It is believed that the family came from Seville, Spain.

Any information will be greatly appreciated and we will be happy to share what we have with others.
