San Fernando, Cruillas, Burgos 1780 to present day. I am searching for my cousins, aunts and uncles. Especially the branch of my 3rd great-grandfather Jose María DE LOS SANTOS (possibly DE LOS SANTOS-COY) born between 1780-1800, married to María Bárbara ALELMAN (b.?) both from the city of San Fernando, Tamaulipas. They had at least one son Joaquín who was born 1824 in San Fernando and who first married a cousin, María de la Luz SOSA in 1846 in Cruillas, Tamaulipas. If children resulted from this marriage it is unknown. María de la Luz died between 1846 and 1857. Joaquín married Barbarita CHAVES in 1857. They had at least four children Luz, b. abt.1861, Jose Juan Antonio b. abt
1867, Jose Julián, b. 1869 and Ma. Teresa, who died as an infant in 1863. Luz, married Francisco PERES also from Cruillas, nothing is known as yet of her family or her younger brother Jose Julián. Juan Antonio (my great-grandfather), moved to Burgos, Tamaulipas in 1882 and married my great-grandmother Nazaria RIVERA. They had 4 children; María Antonia, Nazaria, Joaquín, and Julián, my grandfather. I appreciate any information on these families.
