THE EXTENDED SOZA AND SOSA FAMILIES of Arizona are unique in the
annals of Arizona history, because through Alferez Jose Maria Sosa,
family members have a heritage dating from 1774 at Presidio San
Ignacio de Tubac and from 1775 at the Presidio de San Agustin del
Tucson. For at least 215 years, the Soza, Sosa families have lived
continuously, in Tucson and other parts of Arizona.
