Many people have tied their Vargas lines to that of don Diego de Vargas; as far as we know no one in this family left any children behind. His natural children by a woman in Mexico City returned immediately after his death and resided in and around the area. Over time, keeping track of them became more difficult and we don't know exactly where or how they died.
If you have family with the surname Vargas, it more than likely came from the Machuca Vargas family or yet another person by that name who came to New Mexico post-Revolt (1680).
