Hello to all,

I am new to the list since last week and in this message I'm presenting my
second main line - Cadena - found in Cuquio, San Antonio de los Vasquez and
San Felipe, all in Jalisco. They were espanoles.

Earliest ancestor found is Manuel Cadena married to Ana Santiaga Jacoba
Gomes (dau. of Joachim Gomes and Maria Gertrudis Vasquez, born ca. 1754, San
Felipe/Cuquio). The only child found of this couple thus far is Jose
Leondardo Esculano Cadena, born Nov 1781 in Cuquio. Working backwards,
Manuel would have been born about 1750, but I've been unable to find a
record thus far. Manuel was dead at the time of son Jose's first marriage in
1806; Ana Gomes died between 1806 and Jose's second marriage (to Maria
Eusebia Vasquez) in 1829.

The name Cadena was quite prevalent in the Cuquio area at this time. Jose's
children were born between 1807-1819 in either Cuquio or San Antonio de los
Vasquez, which lies somewhat east of Ixtlahuacan del Rio. One of them, Maria
Francisca Romana Cadena, ended up marrying in Guadalajara to Raymundo
Gutierres of the Gutierres Rubio line found in and around Tepatitlan.

Is anyone else on the list researching the name Cadena? I'm trying to find
out where the family came from before Cuquio - directly from Spain, or
elsewhere in Mexico? Does anyone know of records besides those of the church
for this area? There are gaps in the church records that have made research
difficult. There is also the possibility that the Cadena were in Guadalajara
before Cuquio.

Thank you in advance for all suggestions.

If you've ever heard of Miguel Cadena, you'll find he was mestizo--
padre was espagnol and also named Miguel and madre was india
(Chichimeca) and he was a great warrior! Marge:)

Miguel Caldera (see Powell's book: Mexico's Miguel Caldera) is very
famous, but not a Cadena. His father was Pedro Caldera. There is a town
outside of Jerez called Garcia de la Cadena. I have an Ana Garcia de la
Cadena and her father Andreas in my direct line. It is probably a
stretch to drop the Garcia.

ooops! :) As one of Gilda Radnor's character used to say on SNL,
"Oh. Never mind." (Was it Emily Latela?) :) Marge:)

I am also researching the Cadena name. Miguel Cadena was my great grandfather who was baptized in Sombrerete in 1865, His father was Candido Cadena and Candido's father was Pascual Cadena.

Marge, Susan,
do either of you have information about Miguel, Candido, or Pascual, or any of these Cadena's?

Thank you very much!
