Hello. Unfortunately I do not have specific information on the family name in TX. I believe that we CORDOVAs all probably descend from a common ancestor. The challenge is to keep researching. The "De Cordoba" progenitor in the New World, according to Fray Angelico Chavez (Origins of New Mexico Families) is Antonio de Cordoba (b.ca 1650, Mexico City) married to Eugenia DeHerrera (b.ca 1655, Guadalupe del Paso). They had 3 children: two sons -- Tomas and Lazaro Antonio, and a daughter -- Ana Maria.

As an example of common descendancy, I grew up in Trinidad, CO, and most of those Trinidad CORDOVAs descend from Lazaro de Cordoba, although I've not yet found the link for my Cordova branch beyond ca 1750 where I have Antonio Abad (sometimes listed as Antonio Aban) married to Juliana Torres.

You can write me directly at my e-mail address: CordovaG@aol.com if you'd like.


Re: Antonio de Cordoba, Marquez book (La Familia de Cordoba), p. 1

The story of the Cordoba famiy begins in the New World in the 17th centruy with the patriarch of the family, Antonio de Cordoba. Antonio de Cordoba was a native of Mexico City. He married Eugenia de Herrera who was born at Guadalupe del Paso, a District of El Paso del Norte.

On November 14, 1684, Antonio Cordoba was listed in the El Paso del Norte Presidio Muster. Under the command of Sargento Mayor and Captain of the Presidio, Roque Madrid, Antonio de Cordoba passed muster as follows: "passed muster with arquebus, sword, shield, saddlebags, thirgy balls and a pound of powder, a saddled horse and four bareback. In proof of this he signed it with his lordship."

He was still living in El Paso de Norte in 1695 where he was acting as a notary two years after the De Vargas Reconquest. Antonio was listed as deceased when his son, Lazaro, married in 1710.

Family tradition holds that the original Cordoba family, who were blond-haired, fair complexioned and blue eyed, came from the Province of Galicia in northwestern Spain.

DEATH:
MARQUEZ book, p. 1.
It is unknown when Antonio died. He is listed as deceased when his son Lazaro was married in 1710. Maria Eugenia returned to New Mexico with the rest of her family in 1705. Many of the families in this area had lived in New Mexico prior to the Indian revolt of 1680. As early as 1709 she owned land jointly in Santa Cruz de la Canada with her younger brother Miguel. He was murdered around 1712. Eugenia along with her sisters Ana Maria and Isabel are listed during the trial.

p. 165. ORIGINS. Fr. Angelico Chavez
Antonio de Cordoba was a native of the City of Mexico who had married Eugenia de Herrera, born in New Mexico, at Guadalupe del Paso. He was still acting as notary there in 1695, two years after the Reconquest. But his wife, or widow, came to Santa Cruz with her children, for Antonio was referred to as deceased when their son, Lazaro Antonio, married Ana Valdes at Santa Cruz in 1710. A daughter, Ana Maria, married Antonio Trujillo there in 1711.

RE: Eugenia DeHerrera
"Re: Eugenia de Herrera Marquez book, p. 1
It is unknown when Antonio died but Maria Eugenia returned to New Mexico with the rest of her family in 1705. Many of the families in this area had lived in New Mexico prior to the Indian revolt of 1680. As early as 1709 she owned land jointly in Santa Cruz de la Canada with her younger brother Miguel. He was murdered around 1712. Eugenia along with her sisters Ana Maria and Isabel are listed during the trial."

Gloria,

I appreciate this info and your references. I also descend from Lazaro but my family stayed in New Mexico. I descend through Lazaro's son Antonio Cordova married to Barbara Maria Benavidez. Did you also say that you were unclear which son of Lazaro moved to Colorado?

Hello. Thanks for connecting. When you mentioned LAZARO, son of Antonio, are you referring to the progenitor, Antonio de Cordoba, and his son, Lazaro? In my database, I don't have a record for a son of this Lazaro who is named Antonio. I have this Lazaro married 3x (1.Ana Valdez, 2.Petronila Avila, 3.Petronia Martin) but don't have any sons of these unions named Lazaro. Would you clarify for me to which Lazaro you may be referring?

Regarding which son(s) of Lazaro went to Colorado, I don't recall what I said but I think it was that I have descendants of his in my database who descend from son(s) who did go to Colorado. I'd really welcome information on those descendants of his who remained in NM. Thanks.

Hi Gloria,

I first received this information from Martha Hawkins. I'll begin with Antonio De Cordova.

Antonio De Cordova m. Eugenia De Herrera

Son- Lazaro Antonio Cordova m. Petronila De Avila Martin. Lazaro b. abt. 1688 or 1690

Son- Antonio Cordova m. Barbara Maria Benavidez. Antonio's birth...(Martha gave me 13, Aug 1733 in San Juan Grant Co., NM) I looked up Antonio on Family Search and it gave me Antonio's christening, 17 Jun 1733 in San Juan, Rio Arriba, NM

I'll have to go back and reverify Martha's original dates.

Thanks for other info. Also, who is your family link to Colorado?

Antonio Cordova Ma.Barbara Benavidez

Thanks for the information. I looked in my database again and found that I have Antonio Maria Barbara as a family that I do not have linked to antecedents. I list any Cordova family I find, so when I was researching Santa Cruz baptisms, I'd listed this Antonio and his spouse, Maria Barbara and the children I found. However, as I said, I do not have them linked to a set of parents. Martha Hawkins may be right that this Antonio is the son of Lazaro Antonio Petronila Avila de Martin but I did not have him in my database as a child of this union. But then, I thought that Lazaro had two different spouses (Petronila Avila and then Petronila Martin) but I may have that wrong. I'll have to check.

What I did personally find in the Santa Cruz baptisms I'll post here FYI:

Regarding spouses of Lazaro and the children of Lazaro and his spouses, I'll post what I've found in my reading:

Petrona P. AVILA:

p. 165. ORIGINS. Fr. Angelico Chavez

Antonio de Cordoba was a native of the City of Mexico who had married Eugenia de Herrera, born in New Mexico, at Guadalupe del Paso. He was still acting as notary there in 1695, two years after the Reconquest. But his wife, or widow, came to Santa Cruz with her children, for Antonio was referred to as deceased when their son, Lazaro Antonio, married Ana Valdes at Santa Cruz in 1710. A daughter, Ana Maria, married Antonio Trujillo there in 1711.



Lazaro de Cordoba and others of the same name appear in land documents from 1712 to 1762, always in the Santa Cruz or Rio Arrriba area. Although his wife was Ana Valdes as late as 1712, some children by a second wife appear several years later, if the father is the same Lazaro. These were : Francisco Xavier, born on Feb. 2, 1727, child of Lazaro de Cordoba and Petronila de Avila, and German, June 13, 1731, child of Lazaro de Cordoba and Petrona Martin.



In Marquez' book LA FAMILIA DE CORDOBA, he

notes on page 1 of his book that Lazaro had 3 wives.



The children that I have listed as children of Lazaro Ana Valdez are Pablo and Jose.

re Jose:

The 1750 Spanish census of New Mexico in La Villa Nueva de Santa Cruz de la Canada: Jose Cordova his wife.

re Pablo:

info is from E.L. Torres, La Plaza de Los Cordobas.



You asked who is my CORDOVA link into COLORADO. It appears that those researching this line can go back to about 1750 and we are all "plateaued" there. I can guess that this 1750 ancestor connects to the rest of the early Cordova family but don't yet know just where. My Cordova ancestor who migrated to Colorado is my gg-grandfather,

Jose Benito (b.1837) his wife, Marina Ribera.



Here's my line to that 1750 point:

Antonio Abad CORDOVA (1750 Pojoaque-1872 Ranchos de Taos) and Juliana TORRES (1752 San Juan de Los Caballeros-1844 Ranchos de Taos);

|

Raymundo CORDOVA (1788 Santa Cruz-1872) and Estefana GONZALES (b 1801/1802 ?, Santa Cruz; m.1814 Taos);

|

Jose Benito CORDOVA (1837 Taos-1925 El Moro, CO) and Marina RIVERA (1846 Taos ­1931 Trinidad, CO);

|

Donaciano CORDOVA (1861 Taos-1941 Trinidad) and Margarita SANTISTEVAN (1865 Taos ­1943 Trinidad, CO);

|

Jose Benito CORDOVA (1884 Taos-1968 Trinidad) and Anna Maria BARRON (1988 Taos-1925 Walsenburg, CO);

|

L. Barron CORDOVA (1916 Walsenburg-present) and Cora CARMONA (1914 Hastings, CO-1995 Trinidad);

Gloria CORDOVA (1938 Trinidad-present).

Missing family

I am trying to locate ancestors of Bitervo Cordova, 8/19/1895 to 4/69. He was my mother-in-law's father. He had brothers named Pedro and Alberto and sisters named Theresa, Rosita and Margareta. I believe they were born in NM or CO as Bitervo was probably married in El Paso, TX where he met my wife's GM. I was told their parents died when they were young and at least some of them were raised by a family named Lujan. Any information would be appreciated. Regards. Dave Nelson.

Hello. I wish I could be helpful but the names you mention do not ring familiar. I have baptismal records extracted by the NM Genealogical Society from Santa Cruz Church up to 1856 if you find that Bitervo's ancestry is in NM. Santa Cruz was one of the very early settlements so if his family was in NM he'd likely be in the records of one of the early settlements. Good luck in your search.
Sincerely
Gloria Cordova
