Hernan Cortes de Monroy y Pizarro Altamirano
Pruitt, reference "Hernando Cortez". It might help if you use the Spanish version of his full name: Hernán Cortés de Monroy y Pizarro Altamirano. The son of Martín Cortés de Monroy and Catalina Pizarro Altamirano.
Children: Martín Cortés, Leonor Cortés Moctezuma (yes, from a liaison with Moctezuma's daughter), Juana Cortés de Zúñiga. Catalina Cortés de Zúñiga, Luis Cortés y Ramírez de Arellano, Catalina Pizarro, María Cortés de Moctezuma, Luis Cortés, María Cortes de Zúñiga.
The Ramirez de Arellano family can be found in Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Mexico, and Peru and were among the very earliest explorers. A Puertorrican pirate of the 1820s-30s was Roberto Cofresi Ramírez de Arellano, who was forced ashore by US Navy Commodore David Porter and captured by the Spanish, who executed him by firing squad in El Morro castle. Cofresi's home town was the Cabo Rojo section of San German, which was my legal home of record for many years, A good friend, LTC (Ret) Edwin Vargas Ramirez de Arellano, an Airborne Ranger, still lives there.
There are also some Ponce de Leon descendents down there, all through a daughter of Ponce de Leon. When his only son entered the priesthood, the oldest daughter, who was married to a man named Troche, petitioned the Court to change their family name to Ponce de Leon in order to continue the line.
As regards Native Americans, the Cortes Moctezumas are not only in Mexico, be also in the US as Juan de Oñate's wife was the grand-daughter of Cortes and the great-grand-daughter of Moctezuma, and she was the wife of the Oñate who conquered New Mexico, an expedition she accompanied.
