Subject: My Genealogy on de Herrera
Date: Sun, 15 May 2005 09:11:03 -0700
My oldest known ancestor is Juan Antonio de Herrera. I am not sure if he was
in New Mexico (USA) or Neuva Espana circa 1750. He was married twice in New
Mexico. His first wife was Juana Atencio and they were married 15 September
and they had five children: Juan Jose, Pascuala, Jose Antonio, Juana Josefa
my ggg grandfather, Francisco Antonio de Herrera. Antonio's 2nd wife was
Maria Montes-Vigil and they were married 14 January 1793 and they had 5 more
children: Maria Antonia, Jose Miguel, Maria de Jesus, Maria del Carmen and
de Gracia. Francisco Antonio was born in 1784 and married Maria Estela
They too had a large family. Their son, and my great grandfather, Luicano
in 1823 and married to Andrea Garcia. All of this occurred in New Mexico
and I believe
that my family migrated from Neuva Espana in 1598 but, I am unable to prove
it as yet.
I am speculating that the de Herrera family came from Cadiz but, I don't
My unanswered questions are:
1. Who were his parents?
2. Are there any lists or patterns of immigrants from Andalusia from 1500s
1700s that could possibly help me in my search?
3. Does anyone out there have any information that is related to my family?
I would love to hear from anyone that has any information on the de Herrera
surname. I can be reached at . Thanks.
