The following image is that of the 1732 marriage of my 6th great grandparents Bartholome de Cuellar and Maria Gregoria Martinez. Please note the underlined text, I used the two marriages above theirs to reconstruct the possible text and the name Bartholome we know to be correct due to their dispensation dated January 30, 1732. I’ll be posting it once I get to it. Back to the document. The document bellow indicates that the parents of Bartholome are Asencio de Cuellar and Anna Garcia. It indicates that Asencio was death by the time the marriage took place and that Bartholome was originally from Saltillo, Coahuila. So many new clues! The parents of Gregoria are listed as Miguel Martinez and Clara Trevino. This documented also indicates that they were related by four degrees. luckily I have the dispensation and it indicates exactly how they are related but that is for another post.

Eight Generations of Vales and Sanchez and Consanguine Zamorano Curbelo and Trevino Families, is a very interesting family Genealogy Book. The author starts by describing how she arrived to Rio Grande City and then to La Grulla, Texas. Her story begins with her decision to get a teaching position in La Grulla, Texas back in the 1920’s.
I have yet to fully go over all the names in this book to see if any of my wife’s or even my ancestors are listed in there. I just thought that I let you know about this book since I am sure it will be of interest to anyone who has their roots in La Grulla, Rio Grande City and also other cities and towns of Starr and Hidalgo Counties.
If interested and want to read it, it is available for free at FamilySearch.org. You can download it or view it on the link listed bellow.

The following is one of the old blog banners that I used to have. I am seriously thinking of remaking the banners to fit this blog and post them again. If I do you will probably see them up by next week.

To be honest with you I do not have many family pictures and that is something that I am trying to obtain. I don’t need originals as long as they let me scan them I am happy. Hopefully I get to share them in this blog as I get more.
