  1. He is my 6th great granfather. Jose Rafael Guerra Pineda, is my 5th great granfather

    1. He is my 3rd Great-grandmother’s (Julia Guerra Cañamar Treviño) brother or my great-uncle.. Julia married Jose Angel Guerra Cañamar from which came my two 2nd Great grandfathers. Geronimo was my 1st great- grandmother’s (Celestina Guerra Barrera) father and Juan de Dios was my 1-great grandfathers (Jose Geronimo Guerra Gomez) father. My Grand parents Crisoforo Gonzalez and Antonia Guerra (Tonche) were second cousins.

  2. Aw! We were so close. I come from two other brothers of his:
    1st line Jose Juan Francisco Guerra b.17 March 1775 m. Maria Juana Chapa.
    Line # 2 Jose Luciano Guerra b. 03 June 1795 married Maria Francisca Ramirez.
    Thanks for this record. I didn’t have this one. I’m adding it to my family records.
