The following image was shared by Juan Jesus de Leon. It is a photograph of his grandparents Hilario De Leon Duron and Maria Isabel Garcia Gonzalez. Juan stated that both of his grandparents are from Hacienda San Bartolo Cadereyta Jimenez, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Hilario is a direct descendant of Captain Alonso de Leon.
As a matter of fact El Capitan Alonso De Leon is Juan’s 9th great grandfather straight line through his father’s side and Alonso “El Mozo” the son of his is his 8th great grandfather.
Hilario De Leon Duron and Maria Isabel Garcia Gonzalez:
Hilario was born in 1912 and Maria Isabel in 1918. Juan stated that during the time this photo was taken that his grandfather was both in the military and was also Mariachi. As you can see form the photo he is dressed as a charro.
