Jose Trujillo Land Grant 1700 - Mesilla and Arroyo Seco, near Pojaoque

In the Mesilla de San Ildefonso Grant we find some interesting family groups and testimonies that appear in the adjudication of the grant itself, initially made to Jose Trujillo.

First made to soldier, Jose Trujillo (Antonia Lujan) on April 23, 1700, he later asked for more land as he was stationed at the puesto at Santa Cruz and needed more grazing land.  Then a Captain, he was granted the additional lands on July 15, 1709.  Jose Trujillo does sign the document, showing that he knew how to sign his name.  His witnesses were Bartolome Sanchez, Domingo Martin and Jose Manuel Gilthomey with Roque Madrid putting him in possession of the land in 1700, these lands today likely known as Mesilla near Española.  Juan de Ulibarri is the acting government official in the second piece of the land dated 1709.

The lands were in his family and in 1735 upon his death, his second wife; Antonia Lopez is filing for her share and her own children.  Jose Trujillo’s actual death is given as December 5, 1732 at El Paso del Rio del Norte. A Diego Trujillo, resident of said Paso, was the executor of the estate.  The children from the first marriage were part of the land distribution of this grant.  They are Maria (Cristobal Tafoya), Jose, Bartolome and Ysidro, all Trujillo’s.   Lands were set aside for them all including land for Antonia Lopez and her four children, (in this I think they are counting one of her children and the three from his first marriage).   The second land grant was known as Arroyo Seco and when you drive from Pojoaque to Española you see signage for an area called that, which are likely these same lands of grant number two.

Manuel Romero and Paula Valdez, more children

This first record is the one indication that Manuel Ricardo Maria Romero uses the Marquez name as signified in this baptism.  Although he doesn't use it often, just twice so far, it makes one wonder why?

Baptized on April 24, 1806, age 3 days, Jesus Maria, son of Manuel Romero or Marquez and Maria Paubla Baldes, godparents were:  Francisco Trugillo and Maria Lugarda Romero. [AASF, Pojoaque, 8:83] Lugarda Romero is the daughter of Matias Romero and Maria Manuela Roybal.  Our first tie into the Romero line of this area.

Baptized on November 15,  1808, age 5 days; Jose Maria, son of Manuel Romero and Paula Baldes, godparents:  Josef Antonio Martin and Juana Aragon. [AASF, Pojoaque, 8:86]

Baptized on May 15, 1814, age 3 days; Maria de Altagracia, daughter of Manuel Romero and Maria Paula Baldes, godparents:  Juan de Jesus Baldes and Maria Barvara Armigo. [AASF, Pojoaque, 8:93]

At the mission of San Ildefonso, I baptized on  April 14, 1816, Maria Bacilia, age 8 days; daughter of Manuel Romero and Maria Paula Baldes, godparents:  Josef Ygnacio Montoya and Josefa Corduba, residents of La Cañada. [AASF, Pojoaque, 8:97]

So did his mother pass away and on her deathbed let him know who his father was?  One naming pattern for the Romero's is Juana Maria, there appear to be at least three of them in the Jose Romero and Nicolasa Trujillo line.

Manuel Romero and Paula Valdez, some children

On May 27, 1795, baptized a 5 day old child named Juana Maria, daughter of  Manuel Romero and Paula Valdez; padrinos:  Jose Miguel Trugillo and his wife, Magdalena Rivera. [AASF #6, frame 69]

Baptized on July 6, 1796, Jose Rafael, legitimate son of Manuel Marquez and Maria Paula Valdes residents of this jurisdiction, padrino, Jose Francisco Truxillo.

Baptized on March 27, 1799, Maria de la Encarnacion, daughter of  Manuel Romero and Maria Paubla Baldes; godfather:  Antonio Quintana.  [AASF #8, frame 73]

Baptized on January 28, 1804, three day old Maria Ygnacia, daughter of  Manuel Marques and Maria Paula Baldes, of this jurisdiction; godparents:  Rafael Martin and Maria Sisneros.  [AASF #8, frame 81] (I had originally called her Venancia)

Thoughts:  Did Manuel use Marques as that could have been his father's name.  Or is that his mother's mother's name?  More things to look into.  Why would he start using Marques with the birth of his first born son?

Romero Valdez marriage San Ildefonso 1792

I'm redoing some genealogy in order to make sure I tied the correct person(s) to this family.  So in my usual manner, I am redoing the entire research and looking at original records which would be film in this case.  So first of all here is the puzzle.

Is Juana Gertrudes Romero a daughter of Jose Romero and Nicolasa Trujillo.  This couple has a child Getrudes who is baptized in Nambe in June 1741.  So is she the mother of Manuel Ricardo Maria Romero who is in the following record?  Right off, the answer would be no; WE need to find more information.

On May 2, 1792, at San Ildefonso, married and veiled, Manuel Ricardo Maria Romero, son of unknown father and Juana Gertrudes Romero, with Maria Paula Valdes, natural and legitimate daughter of Juan Domingo Valdes and and Andrea Lucero, all from Cuyamungue.  Witnesses:  Juan Domingo Gomez and Nicolas Gomez. [San Ildefonso, Reel 29, Frame 93]

So if Manuel is born between the ages of 18-21; this would make Juana Getrudes' age somewhere in her early 30's.  Is this possible? 

Additional record name a Getrudes Romero in Pojoaque.  One is dated August 1822, we find a Getrudes Romero as a grandparent to a child named Jose Ramon Mestas born to Ysidro Mestas and Maria de Jesus Romero; would this Maria de Jesus be a sister to Manuel Ricardo? At this point, need to do further research to ascertain who she might be related to.

Another record is dated September 1783, a Maria Getrudes Romero married to Jose Antonio Gonzales, baptizing a child named Maria Rosa.

Follow Up:
  1. At this point we need to further look into the children of Manuel Romero and Paula Valdes.
  2. Find the family of Maria de Jesus Romero who marred Ysidro Mestas; see if there is any compadrazgo. 
  3. Is the Getrudes Romero married to Antonio Gonzales a viable family to research?
  4. Look at burial records in order to see if Juana Getrudes is listed anywhere?
