I found your ancestors migrating from the Canary Islands to the Creole-Cajun frontier of Louisiana. Some stay in New Orleans, others head up the Mississippi River.
Your 6th great-grandfather (who probably hoped and or planned to live in Spanish or French borderlands) took place in starting new colony community that is calling itself "Valenzuela."
I don't know what their slogan was but maybe "Like Venezuela, but not as close to Colombia."
You should go check that out.
