I am searching for information about Antonio Montero of New Mexico, lived in 1800s. May have had daughter named Josephine, b. ca 1855. Would appreciate any help.

Thank you.

Thank you very much for your reply. My gr-gr uncle was named Godwin Monterey Pittman. In an article about him he stated that his grandfather's name was Antonio Monterey, one of the cattle kings of Arizona. I could not find anything about the surname Monterey, but thought maybe it might be a variant of Montero. Godwin Monterey Pittman was an attorney and judge in San Bernardino, CA. I did have someone do a search for Antonio Monterey in Arizona but he did not find anything. Were one of the Antonio Monteros in the cattle business?

I have also been researching Antonio Montero. From research on the internet, it appears that Antonio from Portugal was a well known mountain man and was employed by the American Fur Company. He was at the Horse Creek Rendezvous in 1833. In 1834 Antonio constructed a post known as the Portugese Houses on the Powder River. He was all over the west and finally settled down in New Mexico and married Maria Francisca Vigil. Does this sound like the same person you are researching?

Nice to meet you! I am researching for my cousin's wife, Sharon Stein. She is the ggrandaughter of Antonio Montero and Aurora Gonzales. Their daughter, Estella Montero, her grandmother. Antonio also had a brother named Fred, who I think died in Los Angeles in 1945, if I have the right one. Death index says his mother's maiden name Camunez. Do you happen to know where Antonio the Dr. is buried in Las Cruces?

the antonio you mention is jesse's younger brother. both are sons of dr. antonio montero. was estella born in jerome az? i don't know of dr antonio montero's burial site but i do have his medical license from the late 1800's. i have been unable to find how or where he went to medical school yet. i was told boston but no record yet. the fred montero who died in los angeles in 1945 was also a younger brother of jesse montero. he had a son named fred montero but did not stay to raise his son. that fred montero died a few years ago in the santa barbara, and would have been my grandfather fred a montero's first cousin. they did not each other. estella would also be my grandfather's first cousin and might have known each other as kids as i think jesse, tony and fred montero (all sons of dr. antonio) left silver city and went to jerome az. as young men. they settled there for about 15 years before all going their own ways. jesse went to san diego. where did antonio and aurora go? brawley? did estella have any brothers?

Thanks for the great info! I am having trouble keeping the Fred's straight. Can I assume that Camunez was the maiden name of their mother, Refugia Montero? I'm not sure yet where Estella was born. Age 2 she was in Las Cruces with her family. Apparently no brothers, sisters, Bertha, Margarita, and Erminia. Sharon's cousin, Brian Flynn tells me Antonio died in Las Cruces in 1916 and sometime after that Aurora moves to Los Angeles. By 1930 they are in Montebello, Ca. and Aurora is the head of household. Sharon tells me Antonio was blind later on and died of a brain tumor. Sharon mentions that her grandmother Estella had relatives by the name of Fontaine in Las Cruces. I looked him up and his name was Albert Jennings Fountain (he americanized his name after he moved west from New York) There are quite a few articles on him. He was a lawyer, Indian fighter and politician. He was friends with Pat Garrett. So far I haven't found a family connection. I did see one of the Montero brothers in a Jerome census, but not sure how long they lived there. What an interesting family!

I am so very much interested in emailing/talking with you. I, too, am a descendent of Antonio Montero of Portugal. He was my mother's (Fidela Montero Dominguez) g-g grandfather. His son Antonio, born in Taos, was my mother's paternal grandfather AND evidently had a "second" family when my great-grandmother (Ana Joaquina Valenzuela y Fernandez) married him in Sonora, Mexico! Within this family, the names of Antonio, Luis, Enrique (Henry) Federico (Fred) were given to so many of the "children", as my mother's brothers all have these names! It does get confusing. So, we are all related!!

I am so happy to know other family members are researching Dr. Antonio Montero since he is my g-g grandfather too! And I'v been trying to get information of his background/life as well. My deceased mother's (Fidela Montero Dominguez) father was his son, who was born in Las Cruces, NM about 1880. He and his mother eventually left Las Cruces and the doctor, since my g-grandmother found out that the "Doctor" had another family PRIOR to marrying her in Sonora, Mexico!! I have a photograph of the "doctor" with my g-grandmother which was taken in the late 1800's. I would like to talk with you, if at all possible. We're related!!
