Rodriguez



Mrs. Zapata's great great great grandparents
were from the very early families.

Both Contre as and Rodriguez were found in the records
pre 1600. he Maria Rodriguez who was Mrs. Zapata's
great great great grandmother was either the daughter
of Pedro or Juan.

Pedro married here in St. Augustine in 1594 to Lenore,
an Indian. And for a 2nd marriage to Maria Rodriguez.
1598.

Juan married pre 1601. Both bore the name Rodriguez.
Since this was a military garrison and very little
else in those days I assume they were soldiers.

The Rivas and Gomez families both were early families as well.
Juan de Rivas was being promised to Catalina Gomez in 1620.
I note that they married in La Soledad. This was the Cofradia,
(Confraternity) of the same name whose Chapel was used sometimes
for services. After 1599 when the fire burned the Cofradia
the membership moved tc the Principal Church where it remained
for sometime until new quarters were built. Possibly Juan
de Rivas and Catalina Gomez married in the Chapel of La Soledad.

The early Rodriguez family is not to be confused with the
later ones. (Of which we have se-n several in these reports)
However, members of the early families connected by marriage
with the later ones and in the course of a hundred years
a descendant can claim both.

The Duenas family and the Nunez families connect closely
with the those having both Nunez and Duenas connections,
such as the Anzures section and the Entonado section,
in past reports.

Comment


In 1702 on the Ruined House list not one of the many
combinations appear which leads one to think they either
rented or their houses were untouched. There were about
20 to 30 houses left standing if we are to believe the
report.

Here is a list of people known to be living in St. Augustine
at that time, 1702, and whose houses never MADE the list.
Hence we can assume that at least some of them were numbered
among the 300 odd not destroyed.

Amador, Antonio son married in Castle during seige)
Arguelles, Simon(son of Diego de Arguelles....His wife
was Mariana Rodriguez)

Avila, Adj. Alonso de with his wife, Ana Sotomayor
Andrada, "uan de, wife, lichaela de Salas

Crisostomo Juan, wife Maria Antonia Ponce de Leon
Carvajal, Bernasdo Nieto de, wife, Maria de la Crus.
(could be in Block "A" as his grandsons were)

Escalona, Manuel, the Adj. Wife, Antonia Solana
(could be in one of her famil7!s houses)

Entonado, Luis, wife Isabel de Leon(Don Lorenzo Josef's
dt. could be in his houses)

Guevara, Juan Manuel de, Josepha Domingues, his wife.
(1st Mistress of OLDEST HOUSE Francesca,
Mrs. Tomas Gonzales' parents)
Garcia, Capt. Andres, Mrs. Zapata's grandfather.
Horruytiner, Don Joseph and Ana Florencia, his wife.

Leon, Don Geromino Josef de son of the old man...
Don Lorenzo Josef de Leon. Could have been in ode
of the family homes. Also could have been in
house of father-in-law, the Sgt. Major Henrique
Primo de Ribera

Nunes, Diego with wife, Isabel de Duenaa, Mrs. Pedro
Zapata's grandparents.

Reyes, Lucas de los, and wife, Antonia Solana Deputy
Governor's daughter..(Manuel de Solanal
(Could have been in houses of the Sgt. Major
Alonso de Solana, dead since 1678, Do# Manuel's
father)
Regidor, Adj. Geronimo and Antonia Arpuelles, his wife.
Mrs. de Leon, Sr's sister.










Comment -2-



Rutia, Juan de and wife, Lucia de Chavarria
(this leads u- to the LLambias House of tods
Solana, Don Diego, another of the sons
of the Adj. Alonso Solana,
father of Don Manuel, the Deputy
Governor.
(You will want this done someday.
This is the Oldest documented
family in the nation, and there
are scads of descendants)

There are more which lends substantiation to the report that
some houses were left standing.












ASSIGNMENT No, 4


2- Pedro Phelipe Damere, No. 112, Sq. "H" 1763 Puente.
South side Cuna in back of present Benet House.

First mention that I have found on Pedro Phelipe Damere
who was twice called Juan Damere, was in 1751.

Baptisms: July 7, 1751, Ph. 373, 2nd item.
Here I found name of his wife, Gertrude Casanas.

So far I have found no marriage altho the children
are listed as legitimate. She was listed as "native".

Juan Jose Solana Damere was their first child. July 7,
1751. This name presented no clues as many named the children
after the revered Parish Priest. When a priest was here
called Francisco Xavier or Bonifacio there would be a rash
of both names.

Second child was Jose Bonifacio, 5, 15, 1753

Third child was a girl, Maria Rosalia, 7, 20, 1756

Fourth child was Juana, 4, 25, 1758 and here(if we are
to credit the translation Damere was a "Frenchman".

The year 1757 saw the burial of a "3 yr.old" whom I suspect
was Rosalia. For the first time the mother was listed as
"Escovedo". This I feel sure is a poor translation. As it
has been mixed with the name CASTENEDA before.

I am just as sure that Casanas is a derivation of Casteneda
(or a sloppy way of spelling in the 1750's) for I have found
another such who was positively a Casteneda and listed CASTANAS
the same as Gertrude except for the ".

At any rate this re uced the lists. There was just one
Casteneda family in this particular section(70 years)
who could possibly have been responsible for Gertrude.

Francisco Perez de Castaneda with wife, Juana Serrano.
He was from New Spain, she was a native.

Married April 20, 1678, Ph. 131.

Two of their children seem to marry and carry the line
thru the years(marked by the time honored way..13 to 50 years
for the bride) we must seek in order to get Gertrude.




... I 1963


2...(Damere)



At first I hope she could be the last child of this couple.
But I could find no such Gertrude.

Then I made note of the marriage of Gaspar de Casteneda
in 1726 to Augustina Rodriguez. I found no children but
that is not to say there were not any as I have found for years
many listings in the Index(the Leturiando Index of some of
the Parish records) not mentioned in the complete record
and vice-versa. I used both. I found also that Mrs. Gaspar
died in the epidemic of 1727 so there certainly was little
time for a child.

I found a 2nd marriage by him to Sebastiana de Vargas in 1731.
Followed by several children. I added the death of two of the
children, his own burial in which he mentions his daughters
but no Gertrude. He did mention "Maria".

The last few listings in 1763 give dates of previous baptisms
of natives. This Maria is listed under a "no date".

Gaspar died in 1751. Son of the couple mentioned on page 1.


Ana Maria de Casteneda was a daughter of said couple and sister
of Gaspar. She was born 3/1/1700 and married Francisco Perdomo
(listed twice Padron..but subsequent listings brought out well
known Perdomo name) March 27, 1719 h. 312.

They had a daughter, Gertrude Perdomo y Casteneda(listed
Castanas in one record) and you know well the custom....
men and women alike used the name they liked best. Even
a grandparent. March 25. 1724. Ph. 81.
But in all the years 1711 thru 1740 this was the only
Gertrude whose father or mother bore a name similar to
Casanas.

If she comes from this line (which is almost certain)
then she will have for grandfather, Salvador Francisco
(Perdomo) No. 12 on the Ruined House list.

ASSIGNMENT NO. 4

3- MARIA RODRIGUEZ. No. 111, Sq. "H", 1763 Puente.

Here we have an interesting connection. She was
3rd cousin to Mrs. Pedro Gonzales across the way.

And several interesting comparisons.

I begin with Francisco Jose Rodriguez of Castile
and Maria Arsian, whose lineage you have in Assn. 1.
I repeat their marriage, 2/17/1648.

Juan Rodriguez was Maria's direct line. He was brother
of the Maria who married Aru&lar(Assn. 1)

Born in 1655 he married Feb. 28, 1679 Ph. 134
Lorenzo Florencia y de Mendiola, daughter of Antonio
de Florencia and Ursula de Mendiola.
They were veiled Nov. 8, 1679.

Juan Rodriguez,Jr, was their son. Married for the 3rd time
Maria Quiones, daughter of Manuel and Maria Alvarez Ouiones,
1729.
She died August 2, 1742 Ph. 281.

Juan was the father of our Maria Rodriguez.

Her mother, Maria Quiones, was the daughter of Manuel
Quiones and Maria Alvarez, listed as No. 22 on the
Ruined House list,

Maria Rodriguez was born Aug. 21, 17301 Ph. 224
and married June 27, 1746, Ph. 233, Sebastian Baes(a)
y PENALOSA......

Sebastian was drowned at the Bar August 26, 1758.
Hence Maria Rodriguez was a widow in 1763 at No. 111, Sq. "H

So her grandmother was at No. 22 on the Ruined House list.
Not too far from the No. 15 which was in the PENALOSA
family, her husband's family.


Cll










2..Maria Rodriguez


Sebastian Baes has an interesting history.
To tell his story correctly we must go back
to his great grandmother. (Eufemia de Cabrera)

You will recall(from the Avero background) that
Anastacia de Herrera married Juan de Penalosa
in 1673. To be precise they were betrothed
9/11/1672 and married 11/29/1673 or married
and veiled.

At any rate she was the daughter of Juan de Herrera
and Eufemia de Cabrara. She was born 1650 after
the 1645 marriage of her parents.

Her father died and her mother married several times.
The last marriage was to BARTOLOME PEREZ in 1662, Ph. 67.

Bartolome Perez was No. 23 on the Ruined House list.

Anastacia's first daughter married into the Domingo
Garcia de Valle family and brought forth all the Averos
and its complex.

It is her second daughter we are now concerned with.

Ana, Born in Dec. 1675.
In 1693, May 6, in the HCUSE of BARTOLOME PEREZ(step-
grandfather) Ana was married to Prudencio de Salveates.
They were veiled in September.

In 1694 and in 1695 she proceeded to have two children by him,
Then he passes entirely from the picture.

If he went away and she knew not where then she would
naturally not be able to marry. For if he died she would(
certainly have married at once.

Beginning in the 1700's she had five children all
listed "father not known"...YET when those who grew up and
married here listed themselves they said "legitimate" of
Jose Baes and Ana de Pena or Penalosa. Yet search as I have
find no marriage at all for them.




0 @


3..(Maria Rodriguez)

Yet they must have been married later to legitimize
the children and when Ana died March 1st, 1747 she
was listed as the Widow of Jose Baes.

Be that as it may, Sebastian Baes was born in 1718.
And in 1746 he married Maria Rodriguez. They had several
children and August 26, 1758 he met his tragic death ....
drowned at the bar....

His sisters and brothers were Josepha, Ana, Juan, Juana,
plus the two children of his mother's marriage to Salveates,
Prudencio and Eufemia.


This whole thing falls into place very neatly. No. 15 was
PENALCSA on the Ruined House list. JUAN PENALOSA...
He did not die until 1723. Oct. 1st, Ph. 44.


No. 2 was his mother-in-law's house, and her new husband.
BARTOLOi~tE PEREZ.

His daughter, Ana, gets married in her grandmother's house.

It was her sister, .aria, who leads us to the Avero's...
who eventually owned the house known today as "Salazar"..
Occupying as it does the midd-le of the section known
to be within "musket shot" of the fort....with 31 houses
destroyed in 1702.....No. 15 is surely the middle...if we
are "walking with the appraisers".

So if sister, Maria, has this place later...Ana must
live somewhere else.....Odr that we find her son's wife
in 1763 living on Cuna so close to the outer fringe of this
750 foot section of 1702? AND WHEN YOU PLACE "the wedding
house" of PEREZ, No. 23, next to No. 22, the ALVAREZ-QUIONES
home, you have MARIA '""~TGUE7, Mrs. Sebastian Baes, very
near her h '" was a daughter
of No. 22..

Note this...' ,ne wa3 r agh ',c. 22"
Her"mothei4n-law married at No. 23"
1702- Her husband's grandfather lived at No. 15
And in 1763 her cousin( rferitaithe so called Salazar
-__ is living or owns this site. And she is
around the corner on Cunal

ASSIGNMENT No. 4.


4-Augustina Regidor, No. 110, Sq. "H", Puente-1763
Charlotte and Hypolita, northwest corner, and part
of Hypolita.



This was the mother of the map maker Juan Elixio de
la Puente. Her husband was Antonio Eligio de la Puente
of Havana. Very fine family.
In the future you may find she was(in 1763) on old Arguelles
property. For that year the Puente's properties were on
south Charlotte, Cadiz..etc..(Art Center and across street
north) Her lineage is below. She was sister of Mrs. Manuel
Horruytiner and her mother was SISTER of the senior Mrs.
Lorenzo Josef de Leon. So she was 1st cousin to all the
de Leons. (Mrs. Juan Pueyo, Mrs. Francisco Menendez Marques,
Mrs. Juan Horruytiner, Don Geronimo Josef and Don Juan Josef,)
et-al......Quite a family.

We begin with Captain Antonio Arguelles and Augustina
Crespo y Rodriguez, her grandfather and the grandmother
for whom she was named. You have their complete background
but I will repeat here their marriage. Nov. 20, 1641, Ph. 4.
So to her mother Antonia de Arguelles, born May 19, 1660,
whose sister, Luisa de Arguelles married the elder de Leon.

Antonia married Adj. Geronimo Regidor of MartinMunos, Castile
on Oct. 21, 1680 in a ceremony of the Hospital(of La Soledad?)

Augustine Regidor was their daughter, born 9/13/1700.
Married Dec. 27, two days after Xmas, 1719. Ph. 317.
Don Antonio Eligio de la Puente of Havana.

Augustina and Antonio Puente had 9 known children.
Francesca, 1720
Pedro 1722
JUAN JOSEF 1724(the map maker)
Cecelia, 1 26
Antonio, 1729
Maria Theresa, 1730
Joseph, 1733
Antonia, 1735
Maria Gertrude, 1740












2..(Augustina Regidor)


This lady, Augustina Regidor, Mrs. Antonio de ba Puente,
also married her children into the finest families in
the town.

Juan Josef(the map maker) and Cecelia, his sister,
took from the Sanchez-Cashonda families two members..
son and daughter of Sebastian Sanchez de Casahonda and
his de Leon wife...both grandchildren of Don Juan Josef
de Leon and great grands of the old man, Don Lorenzo Josef.

The map maker, named for his grandfather Puente, married
Mariana Sanchez Casahonda in 1747. Cecelia Puente parried
Ildefonso Sanchez de Casahonda in 1746.

Joseph Puente married Clara Hita Salazar, another de Leon
descendant, in 1756.

Maria Theresa Puente was wed to Antonio Lopez de Toledo
pre 1760 in the last days of the Spanish residents.
Tey left in 1763.

In 1763 Maria Theresa and Lopez de Toledo owned 161K
on the map. West side Charlotte across Hypolita from her mother,
Augustiba Regidor Puente.

Cecelia and her husband were at 235S..
(TradeWinds, El Patio)

Juan Josef and his wife, and brother, Jose had 248-Z
251 a...273...e

And Antonio, either Augustina's son, Antonio or her husband's
property, 142-J.
This is nuite a family.

SINCE HER GRANDPARENTS, the ANTONIO ARGUELLES' family
was No. 48 on the RUINED HOUSE LIST....just beyond Pueyo
the Contador....I would say we are on or near the ARUELLES
property in her place of residence in 1763.

Re: Your interest in Augustina Regidor's property.
Let us do the full block.


Puente, Bl. ."W, 1763

109 was the let of San Patricie, new on corner
f St. George and Hypelita.

108 was owned by Antenia Varn.

According to the Fish List, Nos. 77, 84, both these
properties went to James Box, once the Attorney General
during British days, date of sale 17F6.

Box had a daughter who married a Mr. Levett and in 1782
the Levetts,who had come into the property evidently,
sold it to Stephan Haven, the "hangman".

Haven passed it to Francisco Entralgo in 1785 and
Entralge s6ld it to Father Thomas Hassett in 1787. Escrituras,
No. 18, 1787.

------e-----
No. .7-L, next down St. George Street going north....
was Miguel bantoyo.
106 was Francisco -arriera.
]05 was Francisco Suarez(Zuarez)

According to Fish List Nos., 42, 52, 54, all this section
went to Dr. George Yemp, the surgeon. 1769/71.

Escrltiras No. 1i, 1787, shows Sanchez as agent for Dr. Kemp
selling all this to Wi]lIam McHenry, the Dealer in Provisions.


No. 1OA-was on the corner of St. George and Cuna Streets,
and belonged to Pedro Zapata.

According to the Fish List No. 63, Pedro Cosifacio, the
Greek from Corsica, arriving in 1768 with the Minorcan
Colony, taking up residence in St. Augustine in 1777,
bought this property in 1779. He was a storekeeper and
tradesman.

Escrituras, 1784, Nos 13, and 14.. Recitation shows
that in 1782 Cosifacio sold to Roque Leonardi, the wine
merchant, and in 1784, Leonardi sold to Andres Pacetti,
the wigmaker, who Imrediately sold that same year to
Antonio berte, the TavernklFper....









2...


Rounding the corner into Cuna we come to Ne. 112, house
of Pedro Felipe Damere. ["e are going backwards as to
numbers now]

Fish does not list this place.

No. 111 is the home of Maria RoAriguez. [You have her
background from previous note of mine]
Fish does not list this either.

By 1771 these properties came Into the hands of
Alexander Skinner.[See Escrituras Nos. 136, 403]
The subsequent passing of owners comes out in
the 1785 sale.

Skinner sold half to Bernard Spenser and the other
half was sold to James Scotland, another dealer in wines.
1785 both these parties passed this property to Fredrick
Stage, the baker.

However this section must not have passed entirely to
either Skinner, and these he evidently sold the section
to later. In March 1785 [Vscrituras e. 160] David Ieavy
sells corner of Cuna and Charlotte to Antonio La7o de la Vega.

Escrituras Nos. 404 and 423 show that Antonio La-o de la Vega
srld to Joseph Aguirre, with some underfoot work going on here,
for Aguirre refused to take the place testifying it belonged
to Joseph Eldes. So Eldes must have bouFht it from Vega or
from Leavy prior to all this. Anyway it ends up in 1788
as the residence of Joseyh Eldes(Ales, Agles-Perles)
[This is Mrs. Sullivan's area, the one In which you are
currently digging, e one which passed to Pedre Rodriguez
de Cala, the Tavernkeeper,later]


New we round into Charlotte Street. Half way up and
all the way to the corner of Hypolita, half way up Hypolita
was NI.Q 11 owner, Dora Augustina Reglder(You have her
background) Fish lists her under a no entry.
But about a year later James Henderson, the InnKeeper,
had this place on the Mencrief map.
On the Delrahm List of 1771 Thomas Clark, storekeeper and
Goldsmith, appears. He was husband of Deoa Honoria Clark.
They were living in St. Augustine prior to 1771.
So far I have found nothing that documents the transfer
from Henderson to Clark except Clark(Wr.) was an early
boundary in the recitation of some of the surrounding
properties. And Honeria(Lenora) lived there. The Census
of 1783 gives a lenr listing and description of her places
and on both 3783 and 1787 it give- this one place as her
place of residence. [I pave vyo' photostat number of 1783

Thank you for the long letter with enclosures. I will
comment on page 2.
Re: Den Guillerme Maqouenere (Reoord cut of Benet HBe s
e1t, I hasten to ask that you do at let anyone dub this Irishlma
a Spanish "Dena.

This was William MeHoery, birthplace..Irelaad, resident of
Philadelphia for years. Wife was Mathsa Haekett and daughter,
Nlisaboth(Isabel) bern there about 1764.
loeary was a Dealer in Provisions, a dealer in "spirits" and
a carpenter. I have seen his last name spelled 4 different ways
and the Spanish officials called hin Outlerne, meaning William,
but he was plain William McHeary.
He was a Reman Cathelie hence attached te the Register of the
linereans. he daughter, Elisabeth, married George Munre first
and had two Munre children. She married 2nd here in St'. Augustine

To **oment em the section known as the Poujoud House.

Yeu have the early genealogical background ef the families
which I have seat earlier.

There was only a tradition that it was the Carrera House.
So many of his relatives lived on the street that I suppose
they recalled he lived in this locatiea.
This is eoe of the places I call the "eonfused" leeks.
So much of it is in contradiction. Per example Puente in 1763
represented this leeok....r this stretch freo Treasury to
Hypelita....as having 6 houses and property dimensions of about
148 varas. From Hypoliti street corner where lived Doea Manuela
Dias right down the line to Manuel Garcia, to PFanoisee Chriseotemeo
to Beraarde Niete, to Aatenio Gallar'do and te the Treasury oeerer
where Diege Mexis lived it is quite clearly 148 varas.

Mexia's house passed te David Yeats along with several ethers
on Treasury and on St. George. Thru a sueeession of owers this
Mexia house finally passed to Antonie 'ernandes, sen-in-law of
Aatonia de Avere. In later transactions the Pernandez daughter
inherits this property and sells it as registered in the Eserituras.

Yeats alse sold ene or mere of these places en St. George north
of Mexia to Father Hassett in 1785. Thomas Hassett evidently
liked the next block north better, (Bonet, McHenry) for in 1787
he bought here and seld' this Yeats place er places to Gerald Forrester.

Perrester was always the south border of Carrera.
It may have been the Chrisesteoe place that Juan Carrera lived in
thinking it was his own, passing it to sen,, Diego, and finally
finding out it was net' and the real gift of the Governor was nearer
the Gates, leaving Diego out in the sold. However he seemed to stay
here and in 1791 when the Fish properties went on the bleek in this
area, Diego bid it in, getting it really for his own.
I had always believed it was the Manuel Garcia property but the
1788 map seems to sontradiet that as toe many rs are left
ever. In 1788 Defaa Manuela's house seems to be gae sad in its
plaeo the Stables of the King.

Yet in 1790, when each house and each let is given on the Tax list,
they begin with these STABLE, giving the dimensies as 28 vars...
ge eown Hypelita around Charlotte up Treasury and EID with CARE~ A f
giving him 21 varas....SAYING NOTHING about the varea the 1788
map show lwteei Garrera and the Stables Why?
Sanehez, (F.X.) gets this property (possibly in 1791) but before

1807 when we find U1s wife listed as widow. Someone inherits
it and in 1816 eolls it to Maria Antonia Hill.

By the way that dash in the Escrittras(-) means "to"..
eso. 268, 1816.

Here it is necessary te knew that Francisco Xavier Sanehes
was married to Maria del Carmen Hill.

Hi nephew, Jose, was wed to Christina Hill, Maria Carmen's sister.

Aather nephew, Bernadine Sanchez, was married to Maria Antonia Hill,
the lady above who buys the wooden house in 1816, and another sister
of Maria Carmen.

Is 1816 Jose Sanohez was the enrth neighbor *f this wooden hose
that semeeae *sld to Maria Aatonia Hill and 1ieeg Carrera was
-her seuth neighbor.' The reason I say "semeene" sold is that the
transcript is in error and this should be translated properly.
Ese. 268, 1816.

Another indication that Sanchez might have picked up this
stable area in 1791 is that Eoo. 215-1812 makes mention that
an area en Spanish Street in 1791 is being reserved for the
King's StablesJ So it, too, was going the way the bleek seems
to have gone that yearJ

In 1763 the two properties (Ruiz and Garcia) measure 53 varas.
What are the measurements today of Weinstein and Peujoud?

And why did the 1790 Tax list begin with 28 voare at the stables
sad end after going all around the bleek at Carrera at 1...
Together these make 49 varas and this is CLOSE.

Was toe Jose "anehez house on the corner, the wooden one sold to
M.A. 1ll where the Finance office is teday and Carrlra whore
the Peujoad ist


Hope this has helped...

of Hypolita.



This was the mother of the map maker Juan Elixio de
la Puente. Heer husband was Antonio liio de la Puente
of Havana. Very fine family.
In the future you may find she was(in 1763) on old Arguelles
property. For that year the Puente's properties were on
south Charlotte, Cadis..etc..(Art Center and across street
north) Her lineage is below. She was si r of Mrs. Manuel
Horruytinr and her mother ot was SISTER of the senior Mrs.
Lorenzo Josef de Leon. So she was lit cousin to I"l l the
de Lona. (Mrs. Juan Pueyo, Mrs. Francisco Menendes Marques
Mrs. Juan Horruytiner, Don ron oimo Josef and Don Juan Jose,)
et-al......Quite a family.

We begin with Captain Antonio Arpue lle and
Cneso T Rodrigueps, her grandfather and the grandmother
or whom she was named. You have their complete background
but I will repeat here their marriage. Nov. 20, 1641, Ph. 4.
So to her mother Antonia de Arguelles, born May 19, 1660,
whose sister, Lulsa de Arguelles married the elder de Leon.
Antonia married Adj. Geronimo Regidor of MartinMunos, Castile
on Oct. 21, 1680 in a ceremony of the Hospital(of La Soledad?)

Augustine Regidor was their daughter, born 9/13/1700.
Married Dec. 27, two days after Xmas, 1719. Ph. 317.
Don Antonie Eligio de la Puente of Havana.
Augustina and Antonio Puente had 9 known children.
Francesca, 1720
Pedro 1722
JUAN JOS0F 1724(the map maker)
Cecelia, 1726
Antonio, 1729
Maria Theresa, 1730
Joseph, 1733

2..(Augustina Regidor)


This lady Augustina Regidor, Mrs. Antonio de ha Puente,
also married her children into the finest families in
the town.

Juan Josef(the map maker) and Cecelia, his sister,
took from the Sanches-Cashonda families two members..
son and daughter of Sebastian Sanchez de Casahonda and
his de Leon wife...both grandchildren of Don Juan Josef
de Leon and great grands of the old man, Don Lorenso Josef.
The map maker, named for his grandfather Puente, married
Mariana Sagchez Casahonda in 1747. Cecelia Puente arrivedd
Ildefonso Sanchez de Casahonda in 1746.
Joseph Puente married Clara Hita Salasar, another de Leon
descendant, in 1756.
Maria Theresa Puente was wed to Antonio Lopez de Toledo
pre 1760 in the last days of the Spanish residents.
Tey left in 1763.
In 1763 Maria Theresa and Lopez de Toledo owned 161K
on the map. West side Charlotte across Hypolita from her mother,
Augustiba Regidor Puente.
Cecelia and her husband were at 2353..
(TradeWinds, El Pati c clJ L.
Juan Josef and his wife, and brother, Jose had 248-Z
251 a...273...e
And Antonio, either Augustina's son, Antonio or her husband's
property, 142-J.
This is quite a family.
SINCE HER GRANDPARENTS the ANTONIO ARGUELLES' family
was No. 48 on the RUINED HOUSE LIST....just beyond Pueyo,
the Contador....I would say we are on or near the AMELL
property in her place of residence in 1763.
