    Guadalupita Indian Reservation

    My great-great grandfather married a young girl back in the mid to late 1800's. It is my understanding she was from the Guadalupita Reservation. Has anyone heard of that reservation being in that area?

    Thank you,
    Frank

    I've never heard of the Guadalupita Reservation but I have heard of a Guadalupita Colony that was located within Las Animas County. At this time I don't know if they are one in the same.

    Alice and Robert, just in case it's one and the same: The Guadalupita Colony of Trinidad Colorado was founded by many of the pioneer settlers of Mora County NM. One of the surrounding places in Mora County is Guadalupita NM. Luis Baca son of Felipe Baca wrote a manuscript describing that 12 heads of families from the Mora area, on the patron saint day of Our Lady of Guadalupe (early 1862) that they set out with their leader Don Felipe Baca to the Territory of Colorado known as "El Rio de Las Animas", (Trinidad area). This group has come to be known as "the Guadalupita Colony" named after their patron saint and the church of their village they left behind. Some of the names of the families are: Marcus Tafoya, Antonio Duran, Ramon Vigil, Agapito Duran, M. Apodaca, Jacobo Cordova and of course Felipe Baca.
    Source: Luis Baca's manuscript, "Guadalupita Colony of Trinidad" (published Jan. 1944)


    Frank if you could let us know the names of the people in question one of us just might find her/him.

    PAMM Can you tell me where you found the Luis Baca manuscript, Guadalupita Colony of Trinidad, published in 1944.
    Is it available somewhere, that I might go a view or get a copy?

    Pat,
    My great-great grandfather's name is Mariano Maldonado. I believe he was from Trinidad and when my great-great grandmother died he went to the reservation (colony) and (as the story goes) he took some cattle, horses and goats and got himself a young bride. I do not, at this time, know her last name but her first name is Barbarita. Pat, if you or anyone else can shed some light on this I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Frank Montoya

    Frank,

    My great-great grandfather also is Mariano Maldonado. I am descended from his young bride Maria Barbara Antonia Pacheco. Maria Barbara Antonia was the daughter of Juan Andres Pacheco and Maria Tiburcia Ledoux. I am descended from Mariano through his son Leonardo Maldonado. I also discovered that Maldonado wasn't our real last name. It was Montano, Juan Antonio Montano de Sotomayor was born in Mexico City in 1651 and moved to New Mexico in 1677 listed as a convict with pimply fair skin. His son Manuel took the last name Maldonado while the others remained Montano. Sotomayor's grandson Jose Montano Maldonado (1732) used both last names and his son Dionisio (1766) too. Antonio Jose Maldonado (1786/89) dropped Montano from his name and it remained Maldonado when Mariano was born in 1801. Antonio Jose Maldonado was a Spanish soldier stationed at Belen, New Mexico. I could not find any more information on Sotomayor or the name of his father.

    Thank you so much Pat for your help.

    I found out that Mariano's first wife had passed away and had several (8) children from her prior to he and Barbarita marrying. I was also told that she was around 14 years old when they married.

    I don't know any of this so I have been asking some of my family and trying to find out more about all this..

    You have truly been a great help.

    Frank here's the info on your ancestor's marriages (He married two different Barbaras):

    25 Dec 1833 Taos – Mariano Maldonado, single, s/o Antonio Jose Maldonado and Juliana Barela, originally from San Juan de los Caballeros and residents of Arroyo Seco from the church of Holy Trinity with Maria Barbara Tafoya single, d/o Ypolito Tafoya and Maria Concepcion Chaves, originally from the Parish of San Juan and resident of Arroyo Seco, Padrinos: Manuel Paterson and Maria de la Lus Tafoya, residents of San Fernandes, Wit: Ylario Sandoval and Hermengildo Trugillo, residents of San Fernando
    (Extraction by P. Sanchez Rau)

    P. 56 Mora NM Marriages HGRC:
    11/30/1865 Jose Maldonado widow of 1st marriage of Maria Barbara Trujillo (should be Tafoya) with Maria Barbara Pacheco single legitimate daughter of J. Andres Pacheco and Maria Tiburcia ? (see below) from Guadalupita. Witnesses, Antonio Martin and Tomasa Vaca

    On the same page Maria Leonor sister to Maria Barbara Pacheco marries J. B. Duran. Her parents names are Andres Pacheco and Tiburcia [u]Lerous</u>.

    Here's a website to look at:

    http://www.hgrc-nm.org/surnames/GNMP.../surnames.html

    Go to the M's and look for Antonio Jose Maldonado. (ect.)
