I am searching for any data on Juan Pablo Montoya
and Maria Dolores Medina. Especially the parents
of Juan Pablo. I am hoping they are listed in
the following data:
AKA: Juan Paulo de Montoya. I have searched for
a marriage certificate or baptismal records for
Juan and have come out empty. I need a missing link.
I would appreciate anything you will be able to find.

IMONTOLLA, Maria Juanita & Jose Remigio VALDEZ
Farmington, New Mexico by: Barbara Gonzalez
Here is the condensed version of our find, and what we
will need to seal a long search.
My Grandmother, Maria Juana Montolla, is the daugher of Juan
Pablo Montoya and Maria Dolores Medina. Albinita is Debbie's
Martinez' side of the family. Juanita and Albinita Montolla/Montoya,are sisters.
Juan Pablo MONTOLLA
could be the son of Ramon Montoya and Maria Dolores Tujillo
baptized 8 March 1835 at Santa Cruz De la Canada, Santa Fe,
Ramon Montoya and Dorotea Trujillo. Their children were
baptized at Santa Cruz De La Canada, Santa Fe. Their son
Juan Pablo Montoya was baptized 8 March 1835. He was married
at the same church 10 November 1861 to Maria Dolores Sanchez.
She could have been a young widow. We would need to see the
original record on microfilm to see if that is the case.
Maria Dolores Trujillo baptized, 8 March 1835, at Santa Cruz
de la Canada, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
He could also be the son of Manuel Montoya and Meregilda
Espinosa (baptized 4 July 1840) as Jose Paulo Montoya at
Mission De San Lorenzo De Picuris.
Manuel Montoya and Meregilda Espinosa. Their son Jose Paolo
Montoya was baptized 4 July 1840. That record we saw at a data
base in Colorado, said he married Maria Dolores Medina, daughter
of Geronimo Medina and
Maria Estefana Fresquis. No marriage data was provided.
Karen from Colorado City gave material on Juan Pablo Montoya
born in 1864. According to Karen Moore, she states that Karen
of Colorado had not checked the burial dates. It was a Jose Pablo
Montoya that was born to Manual Montoya and Hermeregilda Espinosa.
And he died six months after birth. Manuel Vincente de lose Dolores
Montoya, bpt. 1 July 1792 and wife Hermenegilda Espinosa.
She also does not think that Juan Pablo Montoya is descended
from Ramon Montoya and Isabel Armenta. That particular Juan
pablo married Maria Dolores (SANCHEZ). She found their marriage
date in 1862 in Santa Cruz, but she did not copy and send it to
us. DO YOU HAVE THIS AVAILIABLE. Her father was NOT Geronimo.
They had a daughter Maria LIBRADA born in 1869 in Santa Cruz.
Deberah and I believe that the parents of Our Maria Dolores
Medina are definately Geronimo and Maria Estefan Frequis.
Taos Baptisms 1701-1860 Page 538 & 539. by Thomas D. Martinez.
She was living in her father's hourse in 1860. This could mean
whe was married by this time. In 1880 Census, she was living in
Llano, Taos, New Mexico FHL fILM 1254804, FILM T9-0804, Page 265A
I found an entry in a 40 year CD I bought. Has some listing on
Taos County marriages. On page 50, there is a mention of Fresquis,
Antonio Jose, widow, and Fernandez, Maria Estefan, 25 March 1863
by Antonio Jose Martinez Page 6. Our Maria Estefana Fresquis is
the mother of Maria Dolores Medina, who married Geronimo Medina.
Names always give leads.

The deciding factor would be the marriage record for
Juan Pablo or Jose Pablo Montoya/Montolla to Maria Dolores Medina. The marriage would probably would have occured in 1862. Marriage: any where from 1859 through 1863. Maria Dolores Medina: 0016868 Source

Their first child Jose Ysabel Montoya was baptized at
the Mission de San Lorenzo De Picuris in April 1864.
Frank Montoya and wife (Maria) Gertrudez are the godparent
of Juan Paolo Montoya and Maria Dolores Medina's child Jose
This family is listed on the same page with Juan Montoya
and Dolores Medina in the 1870 Census Precinct #10 Quimado,
Santa Fe, New Mexico Page 19. Also, Maria Gertrudez's maiden
name is Chavez. Francisco Monotya and wife Gertrudis were in
the Town of Potrero, North of Chimallo, Rio Arriba County,
New Mexico in the 1880 Census.
Karen Moore posted a family tree of a Ramon Montoya and
Maria Dolores Trujillo, had a son Juan Pablo Montoya baptized
in 1835 at Santa Cruz De la Canada at Santa Fe. One of their
other sons is Jose Francisco Antonio Montoya born 1837, who
married Maria Gertrudis de Jesus CHAVES, this is the couple
who were godparents to Joe Ysabel Montoya (Juan and Dolores
Montoya's first child). If you have access to a marriage
record on them, that is another option to look into.
Maria Dolores Medina, daughter of Geronimo Media and Maria
Estefania Fresquis was in the 1850 Census. She would have
married Jose Paolo (Juan Pablo) Montoya between December
1860 and November 1863. Son Jose Ysabel was born April ? 1864.
1880 Census: Llano Taos, N. M. Two children Raymundo and
Concicion. albinia Montoya was not mention, she was born

She married at the age of 16 at about 1901. Her husband was
Jose Remigio VALDEZ. I have searched with no avail for his
lineage. Would you search anything on him. A death date.
His father was from Colorado, according to the Census. I don't
have anything on the marriage of my Grandmother. She was as close
as my real mother to me. My Grandmothers death date according to
the Social Security state she was in California, she was not.
She died in Farmington, New Mexico. My Aunt Fidela watched over
her till her parting. She was buried at Greenlawn Cemetery.

Can you shed any light on this? Marriage Reel #16972, Holy Cross.
A death registration on either Juan Pablo Montolla or Maria
Dolores Medina would be another major find as you know. It's
that marriage record that would have us doing A great rejoicing!
