I've suddenly developed an interest in the
Tlaxcaltecos. Although I knew they were instrumental
in the foundation of the state of Coahuila, I never
thought I had any Tlaxcalteco descent because my
family is famous for their bright blue eyes.
But, yesterday I examined several microfilms I had
ordered from Salt Lake City, and there it was
"Yndios." It doesn't specify the tribe, but it must
Juan Ysidro and his wife Razo had a son on May 13,
1796 named Jose
Ascension Ramirez born in Parras de la Fuente.
I wondered why the birth extract listed the mother
only as "Razo." Could it be the name was obscured, the
Now I could see it for myself. It was as clear as day,
all it said was Razo. Is that a first name, last name?
I haven't a clue.
So where did our blue eyes come from?
Their son, Jose Ascension Ramirez married a lady named
Maria Noveta Velis, probably spelled Velez today.
Could she be the source of the blue eyes in my family?
I haven't been able to dig up anything on her, she's a
dead end in my research. I'm sure the name is Noverta.
It's clearly spelled that way in the birth document. I
thought it could be Roberta, but no, it is Noverta. I
don't know where she was born, or who her parents
Their son, Jose Maria de la Asumpsion Ramires Velis
married Maria Guadalupe Morales Ylaria who was born in
Saltillo on December 15, 1836. Her parents were Jose
Tomas Morales and Maria Paula Sebastiana Ylaria who
were also born in Saltillo. Tomas Morales's parents
were Jose Morales and Rosalia Roderiguez.
Perhaps Maria Guadalupe Morales Ylaria was the source
of the gene that gave blue eyes to the Ramirez clan.
Perhaps both Maria Noverta Velis, and Maria Guadalupe
Morales Ylaria had blue eyes.
I know Maria Guadalupe's son Mateo Ramirez Morales had
the gene he passed on to his blue-eyed son Victor
Ramirez Romo, he passed it on to his children, and
It is miraculous, in my opinion that the recessive
blue eyed gene could have survived in the genetic
environment of Parras de la Fuente.
I've searched hundreds of documents from the era of
Juan Ysidro and Razo, the late 18th century, and there
occurred much more racial intermarriage and
interbreeding in general than I suspected. I find many
Ramirez's listed as Indian, Mulatto, Mestizo and
Yet, the blue eyes survive in my family. Evidence of a
union almost two centuries ago in distant Parras de la
