There were three Tlascaltec sisters, known to be the daughters of a "Don Joseph" of Tepeaca who traveled to New Mexico with Juan López. One of these sisters named Agustina married Francisco, the Native American servant of Juan López. Of the other two, both were unmarried, brought their daughters along with them to New Mexico. Their names were María and Catalina. There are a few clues thaat lead Chávez to believe one of these women married Mateo. Mateo lived not far from Tepeaca, the home of the sisters, and one of Mateo's grandchildren from Santa Clara used the name López Naranjo, López coming from his grandmother, a possible servant of Juan López. Also Mateo's son, Domingo Naranjo, the representative of Pohé-yemo in the Pueblo Revolt council, was very fluent in Mexican Indian lore.
