Filling in gaps

Source: Ancestry. Sonora, Civil Registration Births, 13 Aug 1882.
Back in February 2016 I wrote about Librada Campuzano, half-sister of my 2nd-great-grandfather Vicente Plutarco Campuzano. She lived to be 92 years old, and had a close connection to Dolores Elias Calles and brother Plutarco Elias Calles (who later became President of Mexico). I found another reference to Librada in a Sonora Civil Registration record for her grandson Ricardo Pesqueira. Ricardo was born on 29 July 1871 in Guaymas, Sonora to Fernando Pesqueira and Alejandra Ayon (Librada's daughter). The registration was done at Librada's home in Guaymas in 1882.

Alejandra and Fernando were married in Guaymas on 14 November 1874. The civil registration record confirms Librada was originally from Arizpe, and had been living in Guaymas after the death of her husband Jesus Ayon. It lists Jesus' parents as Jose Ayon of Alamos and Maria Ygnacia Espinoza de las Monteras de Ayon of Sinaloa. The record lists Librada's parents Vicente Campuzano of Arizpe (deceased) and Benancia Gutierrez as still living in Guaymas.
