Fernando Xavier dr Rivera y Moncada

| Private Reply
Don Fernando was born in Compostela, Nayarit in 1725 and his father was a minor official there.

Don Fernando was killed by Indians in 1780, leaving his wife and two children to fend for themselves in Compostela. The crown did not even pay them the death bonus that was decreed for them.

My question is - does anyone know if any descendants of Don Fernando still exist?

If so, I'd like to communicate with them.
