Maria MAESTAS & Juan BARRANCA Santa Fe 1870s
Posted by: Cynthia Nason (ID *****1172) Date: July 23, 2009 at 05:17:46
  of 479

I have been researching the genealogy of my godfather who left Santa Fe, NM, when he was 16 to join the Army and now lives in Alabama. Uncle Ray’s grandparents were Estanislado GARCIA & Donaciana BARRANCA of Santa Fe, who were married in 1886 according to the census. I recently got a death certificate for my godfather’s grandmother, which shows that her parents were Juan BARRANCA & Maria MAESTAS. According to the death certificate, Juan BARRANCA was born in Santa Fe while Maria MAESTAS BARRANCA was born in Las Vegas, San Miguel Co, NM. I have been unable to identify which MAESTAS family that she belonged to.

The first record that I have found for the family is the 1880 census, by which time Juan had already died:

       Teodora Barranca        7        
       Maria Ana Barranca        4        
       Maria Barranca         70

The family remained in Santa Fe. There apparently also was a son, Carlos BARRANCA, b 14 Nov 1868, d 14 Jan 1914. He married, abt 1891, Maria Reyes GARCIA, the sister of Estanislado GARCIA.

Age in 1910:       41       
Estimated Birth Year:       abt 1869

       Maria Garcia Barranco        40

Maria was in a household by herself in 1920 in Santa Fe. Juan “Juanito” BARRANCA, who was b Nov 1892, d 14 Feb 1909 (death certificate index). Felix BARRANCA , b 11 Jul 1898, d 1918. I have not found death certificates for Carlos or Felix who are buried in the Rosario Cemetery in Santa Fe. Felix registered for the draft on 12 Sep 1918 but must have died shortly thereafter because his card was marked cancelled because he was deceased.

Teodora Barranca, I believe, is the Teodora who m Octaviano URIOSTE. She may be the Teodora URIOSTE who d 3/21/1955 & is buried in the Rosario Cemetery. I have not found the household in 1910, but the following are probably all the URIOSTE household, despite the varying spellings.
