According to oral family history, Maria Gonzalez’ first marriage was to a Dr Juan Brena who was a multimillionaire. He had a plantation behind the Capitol of Mexico where he raised gum trees. These lands were confiscated during the Mexican Revolution. Dr. Brena died in Mexico about 1918. He left his son, Marcelo Gonzalez, from his second marriage to Maria, a substantial inheritance including 52 vecindades in Zacatecas.

Marcelo Gonzalez at one time lived at Callejon del Indio Triste No. 59 and at one time worked at radio station XE2DJ, a picture which I have not figured out how to post.
Again according to oral history, Maria lived a life of luxury while married to Dr. Brena. She lived in a 3 story mansion in Mexico City which was located behind the Cathedral on Calle del Reloj and was in front of the Treatro Alarcon.

The following paragraph is found in “Barrios de Zacatecas” author Fidencio Berumen: “Esta casa del magnanimo espanol, es la que antano occupara la Jefatura de la Zona Militar, en la calle que leva el nombre de Juan de Tolosa, casa que fuera propiedad ultimamente de la testamentaria del Dr Brena, y en la actualidad de la familia Kuri Brena”

Is there a connection between these two mansions? I am not even sure that Dr Brena was of the Kuri Brena family. With these facts, can anyone fill in blanks and offer any corrections to my information. Oral history came from Maria’s nephew and I have not found any documents to verify this info.

Thanks - Anita
