Blas Garcia de Noriega & Antonia Gongora

After several posts on the Cañon de San Diego Jemez Land Grant in the last few weeks, there have been some questions as to the parents and also descendants of the two brothers, Francisco and Antonio Garcia who received the land grant.  I'm posting the parents for them along with their siblings that I currently have; meaning there could be more children for Blas Garcia and his wife Antonia Gongora.  There could also be more marriages for the children, but I was focusing on the land grant and then the soldiers.
