Domitila and Moises Sanchez had seven children who grew to adulthood. Their descendants live all over the country, but mostly in California and New Mexico. These Sanchez siblings were born between 1885 and 1909. All of this generation has passed on, though these siblings still have some living first cousins. And they have left behind hundreds of descendants.
In order, they are: Marcelina Luna, Francisco Sanchez, Victoriano Sanchez, Crespin Sanchez, Joe Sanchez, Monica Lubbon and Henry Sanchez.

Domitila Sanchez, who was born Jan. 13, 1870, was likely celebrating her 66th birthday when this picture was taken with a niece and nephew in Fresno, Calif. No way to count the candles on the cake, but based on the Lubbon children’s ages, it’s a pretty good guess it was 1936.
