Joseph Manuel Dias - Married in 1752 - Tepatitlan De Morelos


By reye611 - Posted on 16 July 2008

Hello all, I am currently awaiting some film from the Family History Center regarding the marriage of a Joseph Manuel Dias to a Maria Anna Peres in Tepatitlan De Morelos, Jalisco, Mexico. I have been able to determine that they were both married on June 25, 1752 (Batch #M603726, Source Call #0218517) I'm hoping the actual film will show who the parents are. While I'm waiting for the film, I thought I would just throw this event out there to see if anyone just happens to have any information on the parents of Joseph Manuel Dias and/or Maria Anna Peres. I'm assuming their DOB's will be sometime around 1730. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes! This is the same family I descend from the Díaz Castellano. They had 4-5 known daughters most took the mothers last name not Díaz. One did take Díaz. The sons took Díaz. He could not have been born in Atot. because he dosent show on the microfilm. He either came from Spain or a nearby Alteño city. Although he is the first Díaz Castellano ever mentioned in Los Altos. Díaz Castellano is a compound surname! Their is a difference between "apellido compuesto familiar" and "apellido compuesto paternal y maternal" (eventhough they mean both mean the same thing in a way. The second example is when the usual father mother have a child he/she carries both names for only one generation. The first example is when two families (often important families or just whatever not sure what to say!) decide they want all their descendants to carry both their names forever until someone wants to compound it again or shortened. Our Spaniard families have very complicated naming systems in the world in my opinion. Anyway Díaz Castellano somwtime when it was compounded it would carry onto the descendants for generations. Sometimes though people like to shorten it in records when they told the priest so maybe Manuel said MAnuel Díaz instead of Manuel Díaz Castellano. My parents did this similar thing when they joined both their names in their marriage they both took Méndez del Camino usually just the groom here in the USA. But also my father. Kinda different but my descendancy will also take Méndez del Camino. My father was Méndez y Cortés and my mother was López del Camino y García. I tthink i should end now it gets too complicated.

Question for you Patricia. Based on what you have just told me, the furthest I have been able to trace back so far on my Diaz line is Pedro Dias who was born around 1660. According to Daniel, Pedro should be a Diaz Castellano. It has been notated that Pedro Dias was married to a Maria Albares around 1680. So, my question is, can the "marriage dispensations" list and/or state who the parents of Pedro Dias were?? Or, considering IGI does not show who the parents are, there is probably no microfiche to show this information?

Dear Reye Diaz--

The first births available for Atotonilco el Alto seem
to start from 1699 to 1749. The marriages of the same
place seem to be from 1743-1789. Where there is no
source indicated, I would think that the researchers
were giving their best estimates.

Although I have looked at some marriage dispensations
in the past, these are harder to locate with the
proper Microfilm number. Marriage dispensations can
give great clues to the family lines especially for
these earlier times. There will not be absolute dates
and or places but one can tell/ guess who married who
and from which trunk families they came.

I have researched for many years in the Atotonilco el
Alto area and most of my finds have been in the
ranchos around Atotonilco el Alto and not in the city
itself. There is still much to be discovered. I
think you are going in the right direction by putting
forth questions for which some more experienced
researcher might have the answers.

Sincerely,
Patricia Burton

So Daniel, you say Pedro Diaz could not have born in De Atotonilco El Alto, becasuse he does not show up on the Microfilm. Out of curiosity, why would IGI have him being born here in 1660 if he was not? How does that record get entered? Do you have a theory?

Dear Reye Diaz--

There are a number of reasons why a marriage would
require a dispensation. For instance:

1. The groom or bride were from an area different
from the area in which they were to be married.

2. The groom and or bride had been married before and
were either one or both a widower or widow.

3. The couple were related to one another by blood
and by doing a dispensation, the different parents
going back to the original first parents, would be
noted.

4. One person of the marrying couple could have been
related by marriage to a third person who was a
relative of the second person in the marrying couple.

..................

One of my favorite research topics is/was Don Nicolas
Alexandro LOMELIN. Here are my notes on this fellow
who was married 5 times to 4 women, two of which were
related to ancestors of my husband.

He is our direct line relative.

Baptismal information--none yet.

First Marriage of four was on Microfilm #280,895.
He stated he was born in Santa Clara, Ocotlan. He was
listed as an espanol. The padrinos were Nicolas
RASURO and (his sister) Feliciana LOMELIN, espanoles
and conjuges.

He was left a widower in Sep 1793, according to
Microfilm #280,997.

Second Marriage on Microfilm #280,895, said that he
was from Santa Clara.

His third wife, Maria Teresa HURTADO, was
previously married to Jose Manuel CURIEL, who had died
abt. 13 months earlier. This marriage on 13 Dec 1809
in Atotonilco el Alto, was considered null and void
because proper dispensation was not obtained.
(Apparently, they were related," de afinidad de
tercero con quarto grado".)
They remarried on 1 Oct 1810, in Atotonilco el
Alto. Their only child had been born in August and
would live to adulthood and marry. Unfortunately,
Maria Teresa would die within the year.
It would seem that this Marriage record was on
Microfilm #222,189 and in this record he said he was
from Poncitlan, then went to Santa Clara, and then
arrived in Margaritas.

Fourth Marriage on Microfilm #222,190. Nicolas
Alexandro LOMELIN, esp., of Lomalarga (Ocotlan) and
vec. de Margaritas. It said that he was a widower for
a third time and that his wife died 4 months ago. The
padrinos were Luis OROSCO and Guadalupe CURIEL. He
would marry Maria Antonia CHAVEZ his fourth wife and
move to Ayo el Chico.

On 5 Mar 1815, he and his wife, Anta. CHABES, were
padrinos to a granddaughter, Maria Sesarea Trinidad
born in Feb in Santa Clara, La Barca, Jalisco. His
name was listed as Alexandro LOMELIN.

When the 4th wife married a second time, she said
that she had been a widow for 2 years and 8 months.
Apparently, Alexandro as he was listed, died about
1828 or maybe between late 1825 and 1830, at the age
of 65-70.

..................

I like to use this example because it shows how the
information on one person can change and yet it is all
for the same person.

In answer to your question, if one of the above listed
reasons for a dispensation was not in evidence for
Pedro Dias and Maria Albares, there may not have been
a need for a dispensation for them. However, there
can be other ways this information can come out at
times.

Although I can not give you an example at this time, I
do know that in one of my old research areas when
certain children were baptized, their parents names
were given but not the grandparents. However, the
pardrinos names were given and so were the parents of
the padrinos! It would appear that the child and
parents were not of the "important families" but that
the padrinos probably were.

I never lose hope of finding more information but I
also know that some times it takes YEARS for this
information to be revealed.

Sincerely,
Patricia Burton

IT was obiously a regular genealogist like us who thought Pedro might have been born in such year in such place. They could have add it to the IGI. I have many ancestors who are said to have been born in Nueva España on the IGI when really they were from Spain. I have no doubt Pedro was a penínsular, being a native of the Iberic Peninsula. Many of my ancestors were penínsulares because the only way you were able to be of the high class in México you had to be born in Europe. a lot of my ancestors (mother's side mostly) would actually take their pregnant wife or acutally empregnant their wives in Spain so their child could be born in Spain when they returned to New Spain, they would be in the highest class of society and get upper jobs. I believe this is all pointless if your Spanish your Spanish(I dont think you the place matters, but that was their beliefS!

Dear Reye Diaz--

There are good lookups and bad look ups and this one
turned out well. I ask that you continue to look at
all the information yourself to determine what fits
and what does not. I say that because these are the
people on your lines and you are the most qualified to
know what is correct.

Of interest to me, was a Joseph DIAS, mestizo that
married a Eufracia Franca de CASTANEDA, mulata
esclava, that I looked at first. It was next to the
one you asked about. I mention this because in doing
research it is good to look at other people and not
just cut and paste, so to speak. In this example, I
did not find padrinos which was a surprise but there
were three witnesses to the marriage. I only had a
short time so did not look at other marriages on this
film.

For you, this is what I saw and took note of:

June 25, 1752 in Tepatitlan de Morelos...Joseph Manuel
DIAS, esp., org. y vecino de esta fel. en la
congregacion de la Villa, hijo leg. de Pedro DIAS y de
Juana de ARANBURO wed Maria Anna PERES, esp. de puesto
de la Sebadilla, hija leg. de Mathias PERES and Luisa
Franca PADILLA, both of whom were dead. No padrinos
were listed but I did see these names with the
notation in Spanish "Selebracion de este matrimonio al
que fallaron precentes...Nicolas de CARDENAS, Baltasar
HERNANDES, Leonardo BERCIDE? (My Spanish is not the
best and so the translation might be a bit off.)

If this were my line, I would look at it numerous
times to make sure I understood what was being said.
You asked for the parents' names and that is what I
concentrated on. I was not able to find anything more
on the bride or her parents but I said I wanted to
look at some of my other sources and this is
additional information for the groom that you might be
able to connect to your DIAZ line.

Pedro DIAS m. Juana de ARAMBURU on 10 Feb 1728 in
Tepatitlan. See Microfilm 218,516.

Some of their children seem to have been Petra
Magdalena DIAS bap. on 20 Oct 1737, Deonicio DIAS bap.
in 1744, and Rita Gertrudis DIAS bap. Jul 1743. These
children were all bap. in Atotonilco el Alto and the
information can be found on Microfilm #222,109. I had
trouble getting the complete dates for some of the
children but if you research this yourself using the
IGI, you can get it.

>From my own records I would like to tell you of
another family. Bernardino ARAMBURO married in about
1746 to Juana Manuela DIAS. I do not no where the
marriage took place. They had the first of their
children, Juan Joseph ARAMBURO on 5 Nov 1746 in
Soledad, Atotonilco el Alto, Jalisco. I have
concluded through the years that it seemed that
certain families started with a marriage in Tepatitlan
and then seemed to settle in the Atotonilco el Alto
area to have their children.

I saw a record for Maria Rafaela ARAMBURO who married
Miguel GARCIA on 15 May 1747 in Tepatitlan. You might
want to check that when you have the opportunity.
These names...of DIAS and ARAMBURO, are very similar
to one another and I believe they are all related.

Here is yet another record that you might want to
check...

Parents Pedro CASTELLANOS and Juana de ARAMBURO had a
son Manuel CASTELLANOS bap 15 Oct 1730 in Atotonilco
el Alto. Personally, I think this might be the Joseph
Manuel DIAS that you were inquiring about.

Please keep me updated as I find this all very
interesting. For the time being, I will not be able
to continue helping because I have knee surgery
scheduled for Monday but it was lots of fun to help
with this part.

Sincerely,
Patricia Burton
San Diego, Ca.

PS. One more entry which you might already know
about:

Joseph Manuel DIAZ and Mariana PEREZ had Maria
Gertrudis DIAZ on 26 Jul 1766 in Tepatitlan de
Morelos. See Microfilm #218,442.

This is great Reye! This new Pedro should be a son of Pedro Senior or someother real close relation even possible grandson. Thanks to Patricia youre real close to connect to the trunk!
At least you know he was a spaniard so it is the same family for sure. Sometimes they'd give their last names to the slaves or even "indígenas", in order to honor their "master". (I really don't like the usage of that term) :(. That Francisca de PAdilla might likely be of the Padilla Dávila spanish family. (Since their from Tepatitlán. I find as soon as you open a door, many open to discover about your ancestry. -Daniel

Hello Patricia. I just got home from work and had the nice surprise of your research. First of all, I greatly appreciate your work, you went above and beyond and I'm very grateful. As I just read your notes, I haven't had the opportunity to digest your research. However, it appears Joseph Manuel DIAS' parents were two people I wasn't aware of. Daniel initially thought there was a strong possibility that his parents were another Joseph Dias and that his grandfather was a Pedro Dias born around 1660, both in the Dias Castellano line. I just read Daniel's comments about your findings and he believes the "new Pedro" you have found might have been another son of the Pedro Dias born around 1660 and/or a close relative. Nevertheless, I now have something more to work with and will keep you updated as I get into it. Also, in regards to your upcoming surgery, you will be in my prayers. Once again, thank you.

Jan, The site that I use is, PueblosAmerica.com
However, I have not used it in conjunction with a family name, only in
locating a rancho that appears in a document. This site offers some very
useful information. Hope this helps

Hello All,

I wonder if anyone remembers a website I lost. It was a way to find
Ranchos in Mexico by the name of the family that lived there. I used it to
find a Trevino rancho in Matamoros. Afterward, I was able to see the rancho
from an arial photo. Thanks in advance.

Jan

It is exciting. It was very nice of Patricia to do that for me. I just ordered the marriage film on the new Pedro Dias today. It will be interesting to see if he is a son or not of the original Pedro Dias we discussed.

This is great Reye! This new Pedro should be a son of Pedro Senior or someother real close relation even possible grandson. Thanks to Patricia youre real close to connect to the trunk!
At least you know he was a spaniard so it is the same family for sure. Sometimes they'd give their last names to the slaves or even "indígenas", in order to honor their "master". (I really don't like the usage of that term) :(. That Francisca de PAdilla might likely be of the Padilla Dávila spanish family. (Since their from Tepatitlán. I find as soon as you open a door, many open to discover about your ancestry. -Daniel
