According to Barbara Babcock in The Pueblo Storyteller, Reyes Romero was Seferina Ortiz’s grandmother and the mother of Laurencita Herrera.  Jonathan Batkin in Pottery of the Pueblos of New Mexico 1700-1940 stated:

“Pottery making both improved and increased between about 1910 and 1930, and a few potters excelled, for example Ignacita Suina Arquero, Lorencita Cordera, Stefanita Herrera, and Reyes Romero.”
