General Juan Antonio Menchaca

Hello,

I am trying to find out more about General Juan Antonio Menchaca. He fought for the Mexican Royalist troops during the Texas war for independence. He was originally from Spain and came over with 2 brothers. He received a large land grant from Spain and settled in the Helotes, TX area after Mexico lost the war (as he did not want to return to Spain). I found this information on the Helotes, TX Small Town project website. I am researching whether he was related to the Canary Islanders OR to Captain Jose Antonio Menchaca who fought on the side of the Alamo.

Thank you.
