I am sorry to say that I do not have anything on the individuals you mentioned. I can tell you that the name Malacara and Gamez are not unfamiliar to me. I have seen both names in the Linares records. I may have even seen the name Malacara in association with either a Mireles or an Hernandez (both names in my maternal line). I think however they were not with an Hernandez or Mireles I could identify as being in my line, so I did not record them. Sometimes I am moved to save the information and sometimes not. I may have made a note, and should I find it I will get back to you.
As for the records you search being destroyed, I would not give up so easily. If they were Catholic (a good possibility) they might have been mentioned more than once in church records. I have found proof that a relative was still alive during a particular year just by reading as many records as I could. Sometimes they were listed as God-Parents, witnesses, grandparents or other such relatives. Also by this time, civil registers were in very much in place. It's just a matter of figuring out where to look. Children were often not baptised in their home town. The parents might travel to a nearby town where there might be other relatives and where there might be a priest available. I have seen many cases where this happened. Sometimes the priest travelled to the ranches and haciendas, but the records were recorded at his permanently assigned church.
Hope this helps.........BTW, it wouldn't hurt to search the Linares church or civil records for the time periods you mentioned. You might find what you're looking for. It wouldn't hurt to look also in other parish's such as the Villagran church. I don't think it is too far from Ciudad Victoria.
