Origin of the Bochinclonny Last Name
Topic: Bochinclonny History
Today, I returned to Albuquerque, for school. On the way back, I dropped off my grandfather so he could visit with his relatives in Nashchitti (Nahashch'idi). I visited with Wado's grand-daughter Sherry who told me more about my grandfather's ancestry. Wado's father who was originally from Nahashch'idi brought is wife Hanaazbaa' back from White Cone area where the Tse Nahabinii Clan is originally from.

Our family was never sure where Wado's last name came from (Bochinclonny). How he got the name is still unknown, but Sherry told me his name comes from the English rendering of the Navajo name Ba Achini ani (Many Children)
Lincoln Nez supposably has an extensive family tree chart that I'd like to see someday.

Interview with Rose Nez
Topic: Bochinclonny History
Today was an interesting day. Traveling back home for fall break, I visited my grand-father's sister Rose Nez. She is originally from Nashchitti, New Mexico (Nahashch'idi), the wife of the late Arthur Nez. Though she couldn't remember much, she was willing to provide me information for this study. From her, I learned that my paternal great-grandfather was named Charley Netdeel. I knew that my paternal great-grandmother was named Hanesbah. Since this is the Anglo rendering of the original Navajo name I didn't know the exact pronounciation. She pronounced it Hanaazbaa', the same name of my maternal great-grandmother. As for her grandparents, she didn't remember since they died during the war. Since my Navajo is not too good, I wasn't able to clarify exactly what she meant. I'm assuming that her grandparents died during the "Long Walk" since this is about the time-period they would have lived.
