Captain Bartolome Gonzalez and His Descendants

The book Captain Bartolome Gonzalez and his Descendants by Joel Rene Escobar y Saenz is truly a gem for anyone in Northeastern Mexico with the Gonzalez last name.

Captain Bartolome Gonzalez is my 11th great grandfather through two of his children.

The author states that Bartolome was born about 1598 in Moron de la Frontera, Andalucia, Spain, He was married three times; Catarina Gonzalez, Isabel Gomez de Esquivel, and Ana Quintanilla.

The book also mentions the different Gonzalez lines that the author was able to find for Northeastern Mexico and helps explain that there are other Gonzalez families that also had descendants.

This book has been an invaluable resource in my research since it has helped me break many brick walls that I had about several of my Gonzalez lines.

It has also provided me with many sources that have lead me to many other discoveries.

I found many of my Guerra ancestors within the pages of this book too.

Also, keep in mind that Bartolome Gonzalez has thousands of descendants and you might be one of them.

    My paternal aunt, Emilia, once told me not to be looking for heraldic escutcheons for Gonzalez. She said she thought that the first Gonzalez in our family was an indio whose patron couldn’t pronounce his name and renamed him on the spot with his own surname. Given what we now about Africans in America, I think my aunt’s story to be plausible.
    I’ve traced my own Gonzalez to Juan Gonzalez whose son Nestor was born in1822 in Saltillo Coahuila. I have nothing on Juan although his wife may have been Luciana Dominguez. I don’t have documentation but I think my indigenous DNA (43%) came from him.
