Y-DNA Descendants of Nicolas Marroquin

Crispin Rendon has released a report on the Y-DNA descendants of Nicolas Marroquin. Hopefully, someone that you know that is a male Marroquin might be able to test their Y-DNA. As it turns out Nicolas is my 7th great grandfather through my maternal grandmother Dominga Marroquin.

Nicolas lived during the late 1600’s and died on about 1719 but I have not been able to find his vital records.

He married Francisca Montemayor Rodriguez on January 9, 1707, in present-day Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. You can see their marriage record here: Nicolas de Marroquin and Francisca Rodriguez, 1707 Marriage in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

You can download Crispin’s report here:

By the way, f you are a descendant of Nicolas Marroquin make sure to drop me a message in the comments section at the bottom of this page. Also, make sure to join the We Are Cousins DNA project.

  1. Have checked but have not had time to document it yet but my 4th great-grandfather Vicente de Leon (de la Garza ) married Maria Juliana Marroquin daughter to Juan Bautista Julian Marroquin who was son to Joseph Ascencio Marroquin.

  2. My father is Marroquin and he is a decendent of Nicolas Marroquin. I would like my father to do a Y-Dna. He is from congregacion hidalgo. What is the least expensive site he can do that?

  3. Hello,
    I am Alanis Marroquin. My mother is Marroquin, her father is Santiago Marroquin from Santiago, N.L., Mexico. My grandfather’s parents were Santiago Marroquin and Lucinda Alanis. My great grandfather’s (Santiago Marroquin) parents were Isidro Marroquin and Carmen Alanis. Isidro’s parents were Jesus Marroquin and Saturina dela Garza. And Jesus parents were Damasio Marroquin and Juana Silva. I got stuck there. I haven’t been able to find if he connects to Nicolas Marroquin.

    However, I do have 2 other connections, with Nicolas Marroquin from my mother’s father’s side and from my dad’s mother’s side. If I can find if Damasio Marroquin connects to Nicolas Marroquin then that’ll be my 3rd connection.

    I have (2) pictures that my mom gave me of my grandfather’s brother that went to Jerusalem. I just don’t know what year it was possibly in the 1920s or 1930s not sure. Would love for someone to help explain the meaning of the trip, any stories, or any other information I can get. –Yvette

  4. Hello Moises,
    I have been on a year-long search for my biological father. I now believe he was a Marroquin and that I am a descendant of Nicolas Marroquin through Pedro Marroquin Leal 1840, Antonio Marroquin Rodriguez 1867, and Francisco Antonio Marroquin Cavazos 1898 and his wife Luisa Martinez Torres 1902. One of the sons of Francisco Antonio has just shown up as my uncle at 1382cms.
    I just joined the We Are Cousins DNA Research group and asked for cousin matches just to confirm more of what I am learning.
    Thanks for all the work that you do.
