    Re: Juan M. Garcia Ancestors

    I have looked for this family and have came to the conclusion that your Juan M. Garcia is the s/o Jose Dolores Garcia and Maria Dolores Crespin.
    He was baptized 2/17/1856 in Santa Gertrudes Church Mora NM. His padrinos were Selsontiano Lucero and Maria Andrea Mansanares.
    They are also in the 1860 census for Santa Gertrudes Mora County NM. His siblings: Jose Guadalupe, Maria Merced, Maria Abelina, Maria Mergilda, Jose Gabriel, and Maria Dolores.

    Juan de Mata married 7/19/1880 Holy Trinity Church, Trinidad Maria Dolores VIGIL of the same place, daughter of Maria Raymunda.
    Godparents for marriage: Jose Ignacio Medina and Maria Manuela Atensio

    Holy Trinity Church records also show a marriage for Juan Ma Garcia of Gulnare CO, with Delfinia Castro 8/19/1889.
    No parents are listed for either.

    The following marriages are from the Colorado Marriages:

    Garcia, Juan Ma ~ Castro, Delfinia 19 Aug 1897 Las Animas County License #2670

    Garcia, Meloquinas ~ Martinez, Manuelita 13 Apr 1907 Las Animas County License #1350

    Garcia, Eusebio ~ Griego, Irenia 01 Mar 1920 Las Animas County License #3253

    (Could be the one you mentioned: Garcia, Eusebio ~ Semano, Arcadia 21 Mar 1916 Las AnimasCounty License #1683)


    Garcia, Diego ~ Trujillo, Rosa 05 Aug 1912 Las Animas County License #354

    Garcia, Ofelia ~ Gonzales, Jesus 20 Oct 1928 Las Animas County License #6913

    I also looked in the baptisms for the three sons of Juan M. Garcia, but I did not find any of them in the records.

    Well I won't take away all the fun for you to find your family so I won't go farther. I really hope this is your family.

    Contact me if you need more. Goodluck.

    June, Dodie, Alice and Pat,

    I'd given up all hopes of finding any information for the Garcia line and started on another branch. I hadn't come to this site in a while and several days ago my father and I were talking and I decided to visit this site again. I was so excited to see your posts that I cried with joy. I've just started documenting the data in ancestry.com and will gladly call on your assistance again if I need more help. Thank you so much for your help!

    Debbie

    Hi Pat,

    Do you have additional information for Jose Dolores Garcia and Maria Dolores Crespin? I've updated my tree with the wealth of info provided here, but have not been able to find anything for these two.

    Thanks,

    Debbie
