Surnames: Garcia
Looking for relatives of:
Pedro Antonio Garcia
b. abt 1829, New Mexico
d. abt 1911 or 1912 in Abiquiu or Coyote, New Mexico
He was the son of Guadalupe Garcia (female) probably from New Mexico

He spent his lifetime near or around Abiquiu, Canones and Coyote, NM. In a 1910 census report Pedro Antonio said that his parent(s) were born in New Mexico, and in an 1880 census report said that he was born in Abiquiu (his birth record has not been located at this time).

He was a Civil War veteran, Union forces and served under Capt. Antonio Maria Vigil with ‘Vigil’s Independent.’

He was stolen from his community at about age 8 or 9 by raiding Navajos and raised as a Navajo until the age of about 18, when he was given a horse and sent back to his old community.

He married 3 times: First wife - Maria Teodora Martin
Their children:
b. 1852 Epimenia de los Dolores Garcia
b. 1854 Juan Batista Garcia
Teodora Martin’s parents were: Jose Antonio Martin-Rutilia Mestas of Abiquiu, NM area

Second wife-Maria VirginiaSerrano/Salazar, Virgina’a parents: unknown at this time Their children:
b. 1867 Maria Josefa Garcia
b. 1869 Emilia Garcia
b. 1870 Juan Calletano de Jesus Garcia
b. 1871 Maria Sara de Jesus Garcia

Third wife - Juliana Martin/Trujillo, her parents: Jose Antonio Martin-Rutilia Mestas (Abiquiu, NM)
Their children:
b. 1872 Maria Rafaela
b. 1873 Ynes Rosa Garcia
b. 1977 Henrrique Garcia
b. 1879 Juan Ignacio Garcia
b. 1882 Jose Tomas Garcia
b. 1884 Jose Tomas Garcia (my Ggrandfather-married Guadalupe Trujillo, daughter of Teodoro Trujillo & Rita Velasquez)
b. 1886 Vicente Ferrier? Garcia
b. 1888 Jose Ignes Garcia
b. 1890 Manuel Antonio Garcia
b. after 1891 Miguel Garcia

I would like to continue researching Pedro Antonio Garcia’s family line, but cannot get further than his mother, Guadalupe Garcia. He had Abeyta relatives from northern New Mexico, around the Abiquiu area and was supposedly a ‘half-brother’ to Miguel Abeyta (married to Rebecca Garcia, this couple was also from northern New Mexico, around Abiquiu). He was definetly related to a woman by the name of Concepcion Garcia who married Fernandez Moya (also from the Abiquiu area). There is a chance that his family may have come from the Picuris or Socorro areas of New Mexico. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Yvette

I was a little stunned to see your very old Message Board Message. I have been desperately trying to find my Ggrandfather's family. It is quite the mystery. He was born 1879 in NM (northern). I've seen his name as Ignacio, Eugenio and Eugene Garcia. My delima is that I have seem him on an 1880 census for upper Las Vegas, San Miguel NM. His age is correct but I found the listed head of household Antonio Aban Garcia claims him as his son. It doesn't add up because this man is 80 yrs old. One BIG lesson I have learned with hispanic genealogy is that names are a mess. Someone can be listed under numerous names. He married my Ggrandmother Ursula Bustos in 1900 ish. In your message board message I saw the following:

Third wife - Juliana Martin/Trujillo, her parents: Jose Antonio Martin-Rutilia Mestas (Abiquiu, NM)
Their children:
b. 1872 Maria Rafaela
b. 1873 Ynes Rosa Garcia
b. 1977 Henrrique Garcia
b. 1879 Juan Ignacio Garcia
b. 1882 Jose Tomas Garcia
b. 1884 Jose Tomas Garcia (my Ggrandfather-married Guadalupe Trujillo, daughter of Teodoro Trujillo & Rita Velasquez)
b. 1886 Vicente Ferrier? Garcia
b. 1888 Jose Ignes Garcia
b. 1890 Manuel Antonio Garcia
b. after 1891 Miguel Garcia

I am hoping that this Juan Ignacio Garcia is my Ggrandfather. I hope there is some connection because I am at a loss at where to go from here. In my genealogy research I have several ancestors from Abiquiu. I need answers to this huge mystery. Don't know if there is a connection but it is worth a try.

Have you checked out www.hgrc-nm.org? I have traced some ancestors back to 1500 in Spain.
