Photo of Pedro Marroquin Perez and Maria Amalia Gonzalez Guerra Circa 1960’s

Maria Amalia Gonzalez Guerra and Pedro Marroquin Perez

My greatest appreciation goes to Ricardo Reyna who provided this picture of my paternal great grandparents, Maria Amalia Gonzalez Guerra and Pedro Marroquin Perez.

Original image is in possession of my aunt Amelia Garza de Garza who provided it to Ricardo, as per his request, for scanning so that he may send it to me.

Muchas Gracias Primo!

That I know of, they had Seven children and they were married on Aug 27 1912 in Guardados de Arriba, Tamaulipas, Mexico. This is the only picture that I have of them.

Thanks again Ricardo.

First Colonizers 1751 of Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following was extracted from the book by Antonio Ma. Guerra, “Mier en La Historia” translated by Jose Maria Escobar and Edna Garza Brown. Originally published in 1953 and translated in 1989. Published by New Santander Press Edinburg, Texas.
Guerra goes on to state in his book that;

In the Municipal Archives of this place, I found the following authentic documents.

When he say’s place he is referring to Mier, Tamauliaps, Mexico. The following was written in 1751 during Jose de Escandon’s stay in Camargo Tamauliaps, Mexico.

A list of the first colonizers signing before Captain don Blas Maria de la Garza Falcon to form the new town.

INCONTINENTI, His Lordship, in consequence of that provided in the decree which precedes, proceeded with the registration of families that are found in the place that was named De el Cantaro, and it was made official in the following form:

1. Don Manuel de Hinojosa, who was from the Villa de Camargo, married to Dona Ines de Chapa.

2. Don Juan de Chapa, married with Maria Lopez de Jaen, colonizer, who was from Camargo.

3. Dona Ana Maria Guajardo, widow, registered with those of la Villa de Camargo.

4. Don Francisco Guerra, Married to Dona Josefa de la Garza, registered in la Villa de Camargo.

5. Don Javier Salinas, registered in Camargo, married to Dona Maria Rosa Longoria

6. Don Jose de Chapa, married to Margarita Pena, registered in Camargo.

7. Don Manuel del Bosque, single, thirty-two years old.

8. Don Gaspar Garcia, registered, married to Maria Gertrudis Barrera, of Camargo.

9. Don Cristobal Ramirez, from those of Camargo, married to Dona Martina de Hinojosa.

10. Don Pedro Regalado Hinojosa, citizen, who was of Cerralvo, married to a daughter of acolonizer, Maria Catarina Pena.

11. Don Juaquin Bazan Pardo, citizen, who was from Cerralvo, married to Dona Manuela Gonzalez, daughter of a colonizer.

12. Don Nicolas Gonzalez, citizen, who was from Cerralvo, married to Dona Ana Josefa Garcia.

13. Don Manuel de Hinojosa, the younger, son of a colonizer by the same name, married to Dona Juana Sanchez.

14. Don Ignacio Gutierrez, citizen, who was from Cerralvo, married to Dona Maria Matiana de Hinojosa.

15. Don Andres Garcia, citizen, who was from Cerralvo, married with Maria Clara Arias.

16. Don Miguel Saenz, citizen, who was from Monterrey, married to Dona Maria de Hinojosa.

17. Don Jose Pena, son of a colonizer, married to Dona Ana Lopez, also daughter of an original colonizer.

18. Jose Bazan Pardo, citizen, who was from Cerralvo, married to Ana Salinas, mestiza.

19. Alonso Garcia Lugo, soldier, who was from this royal squadron, married to Dona Tomasa de la Garza.

 It seems as if there were nineteen families with one hundred thirty-eight persons. THE FIRST NINE OF THOSE FOUND REGISTERED IN THIS VILLA DE CAMARGO, which finally became the seat to the numbers which are expressed in their departure, and the other ten, who newly presented themselves in order to populate the referred to the area at their own cost with no obligation to His Majesty, according to the laws, to support themselves with their families and possessions, only from the rivers of el Alamo and el Norte, and to receive military power as civilian soldiers, and in addition, liberties which are enjoyed by other colonizers of this new colony. In sight of this, so said his Excellency, he was ready to distribute lands and adequate water, declaring as he declares, that the aforementioned enjoy all privileges which other colonists of this said colony enjoy. With this the affair was concluded, which was signed by those who knew, with his Lordship, and to which I certify.

Mier in History, Mier en la Historia – Antonio Maria Guerra

It is with great joy that I introduce to you the following book. I say joy since it is an excellent book written by a local historian using only facts. It is a book about a town, Mier, who I clearly remember as a child when I would accompany my father on business trips. I loved playing in its plaza and would admire its church and its towering tower. I never knew the role that that town had played in the lives of its people and its surrounding communities for well over 250 years, and much less the role that it played between the Unites States and Mexico’s relations. That is until I read this book. In the following weeks I will be extracting historical and genealogical information contained in this great book, in order to get more people interested in it and also since it indicates where the original materials can be found.
