I have found that my decendants came from Coahuila or Nuevo Leon. The HERRERAS that I am looking for are from Atascosa County, Texas (south of San Antonio). The El Carmen Cemetery has many many HERRERAS and URIEGAS. Do you know the relationships between these two families. There are also two other cemeteries of HERRERAS nearby also. From what I have found my great-grandfather was Nicolas Herrera Jr (wife Maria Basquez married 1897) and his father was Nicolas Herrera Sr. (wife Beatriz Montalbo married 1869). The records appear to show that both had their marriages at El Carmen Church in Losoya (very near Poteet) in Atascosa County. Also Herrera Sr's father was Victor HERRERA (wife Rafaela Flores abt. 1840) possibly from San Buena Ventura, Mexico. I do not have all this verified by birth certificates, etc. but by information from the Bejaranos genealogy articles and county records.

Thank you,

Celia Roesser or

I, too, have most of the surnames you listed from the Coahuila and San Antonio area. My ancestors names are not the same though. I wanted to know if any of your Montalbos were married to a Capt. Davis. My grtgrdfather was Pantaleon Herrera Sr. from Coahuila.
Does this Bejaranos Gen have a web site?

I found the Bexarenos Genealogical Society through a couple of place. Try

This is just the index. They do have a local office open on Saturdays here in San Antonio. They might be at the SA Public Library downtown. I found my copy from my Aunt Gloria that used to belong to The Bexarenos. The Atascosa Genealogical Society in Poteet also has copies.

Please see this website. There are intermarriages between the 2 families.

Hope this helps.

Thanks! I have looked at that website and I have spoken to Andrew Martinez. At this point, my Herrera family is not connected to the Uriegas (at least not at this point). I have ordered the LDS Microfilm from San Buenaventura, Coahuila and it should be here by next week. These Herrera were also in Medina, Bandera County, Texas and I'm moving on to other church records in the area. From church records, I've located an additional brother to my great grandfather, Nicolas Herrera Jr. He is Rafael HERRERA. And a sister named Anita. Their father was Nicolas Herrera, Sr. and his father was Victor Herrera from San Buenaventura, Coahuila.

If you would like me to do lookups from San Buenaventura while I have the microfilm, email me at

I have a Petra Herrera, b. june 29 1887/88 in Villa Garcia, NL and was raised in Monterey, NL. She came to USA, married Richard (Ricardo) Downes. Settled in Runge, Atascosa County, & San Antonio, TX. Died Aug 16, 1973 in San Antonio and is buried at the Baptist Church Cemetery, Sand Branch, in Atascosa County. Also, her father, Felipe, came to USA w/ her. He dided May 10, 1945 in San Antonio.

Before coming to USA, her mother and only sister died. A cousin later came to USA. Petra had relatives in a small village (believed to be San Felipe) in Zacatecas (sp). The main way in/out was by train. It was located about 150 kilometers north of San Luis Potosi.

Any additional information or suggestions are appreciated.

Recently in the parrish archives of Zaragoza, Coahuila...I discovered one of my ancestors on the De Hoyos side of my mom's family, had a daughter Ma. Enemencia de Hoyos, daughter of Jose Joaquin de Hoyos & Ma. Columbina Martinez, married Mariano Eca y Muzquiz, son of Joaquin de Eca y Muzquiz & Mariana de la Garza on 30 Nov. 1780.
Enemencia & my ancestor Joseph de Hoyos, were primos hermanos.
Joseph de Hoyos was the son of Jose Miguel de Hoyos & grandson of Domingo de Hoyos & Juana de Montemayor, all from Monclova.
Domingo de Hoyos' father was the sargento Santiago de Hoyos, who under the command of Alonso de Leon, was among the first vecinos of the re-populated Nuevo Almaden, that De Leon renamed Santiago de la Monclova in his acta of 1689.
Among his testigos on that acta were, Juan Bautista Chapa & Jose Antonio de Eca y Muzquiz.

Hello Horacio,
Yes, it's me again. I understand that I've written to you recently concerning Augustine Muzquiz (05/05/1900 to 05/29/1972)...and I'm afraid that I "may have" sent you erroneous information, and I am truly apologetic...I have been trying for some time to trace my family tree, and the major problem is that I continually, and much too often, get contradictory info from various relatives. It is frustrating, because jsut when I think that I am on the right path, something else comes up...So I sincerely apologize for wasting any of your time on this matter.
I previously wrote that "Jose Maria Musquiz" could possibly be my Grandfather (and a reference to Zaragoza,Coahuila). Now I'm not quite so certain that reference(s) is correct.
I am now being told that "Jose Louis (Luis) Muzquiz" and Piedras Negras (possibly born in...). My niece posted a inquiry on a genealogy board stating that my Father Augustine Jr. was born in San Antonio, Texas (1944) and incorrectly that Augustine Sr. was born in Spain...
She received a response from a woman named Marie (Carrizo Springs, Texas) stating: "His father's name was Felipe... and under the subject heading: "His Grandfather Jose Louis Muzquiz was from Piedras Negras..." I am a bit confused, and I am writing her in order to clarify the "who from what" sort of thing...Which leads me to this note for you.
If you have any reference(s) or connecting information that relates towards clarification, it would be truly appreciated. Anything connecting "Jose Louis (or Luis) and/or "Felipe" to my Grandfather...Whether it's in Mexico(Zaragosa or Piedras Negras) or Texas (San Antonio, Carrizo Springs or Crystal City) would be of consideral help...Once again: I offer my sincere apologies, and I do appreciate any information you could provide.
John D.Muzquiz
