En el Valle de Guadalupe, la tradición más característica es la de “la vieja del Concilio”; leyenda que se ha conservado merced a la acuciosidad del doctor Rito Romo Franco y del Lic. Jorge Humberto Romo Barba, pues que de otro modo, se hubiera ya perdido totalmente. El doctor Romo la ha recogido de versiones orales antiguas, pero hoy en día es ya prácticamente imposible lograr escuchar alguien que la recuerde directamente. Los investigadores citados, me han informado que de esta tradición se escuchaban todavía en los años veintes, numerosas relaciones orales, y se asustaba a los niños diciéndoles “Duérmete, que si no, te lleva la vieja del concilio”. Era, consecuentemente, una especie de espectro local nocturno, del que solo se hablaba en el Valle.

El doctor Romo Franco ha logrado, tras de largas y pacientes investigaciones, reconstruir en lo posible los elementos en lo posible los elementos que integraban esta conseja: allá por el siglo XVII, vivía en su propiedad de “El Castillo del Águila”, cerca de la Venta – hoy Valle de Guadalupe –, una mujer llamada María González, española, sumamente rica, viuda. Aislada completamente de los demás estancieros y propietarios españoles, llevaba una vida misteriosa y poco se hacía ver de sus vecinos. Mucho después, se supo que ella era quien dirigía una banda de asaltantes que habían esparcido el terror en la comarca, pero para entonces, ella había ya desaparecido sin que nunca se volviera a saber de ella. A su desaparición, se extendió la leyenda de que por las noches se aparecía su alma: el cuerpo de una mujer hermosísima, que al girar el rostro, dejaba ver una faz monstruosa y horriblemente deformada. Hay quién sostiene que esta leyenda tiene algo qué ver con doña Ana González Florida, la segunda de su nombre, dueña de la Hacienda de la Venta, a quien – según relación documental de su hijo Melchor González de Hermosillo – un león le estropeó el rostro, habiéndose salvado milagrosamente de morir a sus garras, lo que consta en la relación de hechos milagrosos debidos a la intervención de Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos (24). Tal vez pudiera encontrarse aquí el despuntar de la mencionada conseja, sumamente deformada a través de incontables generaciones de trasmisión oral de la misma. En la obra en preparación “Valle de Guadalupe: historia, tradición y personajes”, de los investigadores antes citados, se encontrará un estudio más profundo al respecto.

*(24) Impresa en 1694. Citada en el capítulo III de esta primera parte, nota (80) – “Origen de los dos célebres santvarios De la Nueva Galicia Obispado de Guadalaxara en la América Septentrional. Noticia cierta De los Milagrofos Favores, que hace la VIRGEN SANTISIMA, á los que en ellos, y en fusa dos Imágenes la invocan.

____________________________________

Don Mariano also states that your tíos, Dr. Rito Romo Franco and Lic. Jorge Humberto Romo Barba, were working on a book called “Valle de Guadalupe: historia, tradición y personajes”. Was this book ever published? Are there any extant copies available? I’m sure many, such as myself, would love a copy of said book. I searched and only located a Facebook page titled just that – Valle de Guadalupe: historia, tradición y personajes - https://www.facebook.com/groups/264734628175/?fref=nf

I find it worthwhile to point out as Don Mariano states “…la mencionada conseja, sumamente deformada a través de incontables generaciones de trasmisión oral de la misma.” / [“…the aforementioned legend has been summarily deformed throughout countless generations of oral transmission of the same.”]. Obviously every legend contains some kernel of truth, which then becomes exaggerated and embellished over time...in this case Llorona style. Since none of us were really actually there to witness first-hand any event that ever occurred in the past (but we wish we could), we each have to reach our own conclusions and what happened based on the scant proof left behind: oral history and documentary evidence. And through combination of all sorts of varied sources, a clearer picture emerges, and everybody can freely reach their own conclusions.

I believe that Steven has aptly described how stories can be exaggerated and embellished over time. We often hear of stories taking a life of their own with little resemblance to the original story.

What I want to add right now is that stories are not always exaggerated over time. I can verify that many stories from my family tree have been the opposite of exaggerated. Life is sometimes stranger or harder to believe than fiction. Sometimes stories are minimized, and for different reasons. If I were to publish right now, I would take out many stories or soften the impact that they could have on people's perception of their grandparents, great grandparents, great uncles and great aunts.

Jorge Romo Baraba did finish the book but not until until many many years after my tio Rito Romo Franco passed away. Many people highly praise this book. I have enjoyed many hours of reading about my family in this book. The book is about the history and traditions of the town. The book does have genealogical information and stories about many people from the Valle de Guadalupe. I have a copy of the book. My tio Jorge Romo Barba was a politician. He was even a politician in writing this book. Much genealogical information was left out for varied reasons that I won't go into right here. The lines, besides not being complete, only go back a few generations. There is nothing wrong in focusing on genealogy over a one hundred fifty year period.

I liked my tio Jorge Romo Barba. He was a nice man. He was a man with organizational skills, and was a great conversationalist. He, like most politicians, had a gift of speech, to turn a conversation to a certain direction. His interest ran more into putting together some stories together about the culture and traditions of the town. The stories of people in his book are mostly about people that are still living or had lived in the twentieth or nineteenth century. He himself did not do much genealogical research in comparison to other family members.

The genealogist was my tio Rito Romo Franco and the uncles and aunts before him. Our family had not only an oral history, but a history of writing down little bits of information, leaving them spread out to be collected like jig saw puzzle pieces to be put together and made sense of.

Some stories have become legends where we wonder what part is true, just like Steven said. But other stories have been downplayed and their significance minimized, sometimes on purpose, to minimize the pain or discomfort that would come from the disclosure of such information. Sometimes the stories are downplayed because they just seem too incredible to be true.

Final conclusions and notes regarding Ana González Florida II
(based on all documentary evidence regarding her)

Doña Ana González Florida II was a daughter of Francisco Gutiérrez Rubio and Ana González Florida I, born about 1594-1595, in the jurisdiction of Jalostotitlán, back then part of the Encomienda de Juanacatlán – a large swath of land that roughly encompassed parts of the present-day municipalities of Juanacatlán, Cuquío, Jalostotitlán, Zapotlanejo, Acatíc, Tepatitlán de Morelos, Pegueros, Mezcala, and Valle de Guadalupe – within the Reino de la Nueva Galicia. Her parents were prosperous “Españoles” who owned vast tracts of land in the local region. She married Juan González de Hermosillo II (son of Juan González de Hermosillo I and Anna María Muñoz, patriarchs of the vast González de Hermosillo lineage and also wealthy land-owners) sometime around 1614-1617, in the same area of Nueva Galicia.

Remarkably, Ana González Florida II is remembered through oral history as a light-skinned beautiful rich woman who stood up very straight and was tall and physically imposing. Her beauty was so well known that if people heard she was coming they would stop, put everything aside, and wait to for a chance to see her. However, one dark night in the 1630s, near the Hacienda de La Venta, in the jurisdiction of Juanacatlán (now Valle de Guadalupe), the local population awoke to the commotion of barking dogs and voices shouting, “Lion!! Lion!!” People rushed outside with torches, but the wind blew out most lights. Uncertain in the darkness that it was actually a lion, Ana got too close and it pounced on her from behind as she tried to flee. As she was being mauled, Anna beseeched the mercy of Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos. Neighboring people came to her rescue and killed the animal. Her recovery was attributed as a miracle of Our Lady and she left one of the lion’s paws in the Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos as an “exvoto” – votive proof of the Virgin’s intercession. For the rest of her life she was permanently scarred, tough to say if psychologically as well, but certainly physically; her arm, back, shoulders, and one side of her face and head were left scarred with teeth and claw marks. She was in her late 30s or early 40s and continued to have several children after her lion attack. She made a joint will and testament with her husband Juan González de Hermosillo on 20 February 1665, before don Gaspar Cortés Hurtado de Mendoza, former Corregidor of Colimilla and Matatlán.

After Ana’s husband, Juan González de Hermosillo II died on 6 January 1666 [Source: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-18450-50456-97?cc=1874591&wc=3J4Y-DP8:171932801,171930902,172924101], in Juanacatlán, and buried in Jalostotitlán, it is likely she began to dress in black, as was the custom for a widow in mourning for a deceased husband, and covered her head and most of her face with a black shawl or veil to conceal the claw-marks on one side of her face and head. Presumably, she lived the remainder of her days completely alone in her isolated abode in “El Castillo del Águila”, in the Hacienda de La Venta, far from the other Spanish land-owners, and was seldom seen by her neighbors. This made her a mysterious figure who literally became a sort of outcast – a “black widow”. It was typical during colonial times to accuse enigmatic old women or widows of witchcraft or suspect them of some other misdeed.
In 18 March 1668, her son Melchor González de Hermosillo became the first to provide written testimony of his mother’s lion attack and miraculous recovery, over 30 years prior. This account affirms that Melchor was approximately 17 years old, and his mother Ana González Florida was about 40 years of age at the time of her historic lion attack. [Source: “Historia de Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos y del culto de esta milagrosa imagen” por Alberto Santoscoy, 1903 [pages 152-153] http://books.googleusercontent.com/books/content?req=AKW5Qafnmp3H6NgoTrH0gvLKia6Vk0gCL0ItbM0-zLbESjPSbLx-z4MbybuyF2gP2qV3eFRGz7P2De_LbWkbxbC3vYrTdwJkq-Pa10xbWAGjtu6IuiQ2q1Cw_iYSo81NyjyB2MCqYtVKk6F0sq1YF__-qCeMrY_bDhyD-Hbsfz1eTsYAufhaWAIneGBlhwcMRE21uPjSVXWU4ML6VFrW8vNCiHru2OwqFRTniyK9xroard3Xr2GXLfiyS973XMbdj3HeR7vKkQtsIrWTbS2Vh9V715jyvEGV7A]. Four years later, on 27 April 1672, Anna González Florida revoked her previous 1665 will and testament, and drafted a new one before Diego Orozco de Agüero, deputy mayor of the Jalostotitlán jurisdiction.

Anna González Florida II died at the age of approximately 77-78 years. We get a glimpse at her wealth and prominence in her death and burial record, dated 7 May 1672, in the Parroquia de Jalostotitlán. She received “the sacraments of confession, Viaticum [the Sacrament of communion that is given to people who are about to die] and extreme unction [anointing with holy oil] and she was sent to be buried with vigil [a night-long series of prayers and recitals of the Rosary] and sung Mass.” Her death record does not specify her relationship with Leonor de Hermosillo – either her sister-in-law, married to Miguel Gutiérrez Rubio, or her daughter, married to Gerónimo Sánchez de Porras – to whom she bequeathed ten “chichigua” cows [small cows used for nursing] and twelve mares.” Apparently she had at least one slave named Pedro Moya, whom she set free upon her death. She left Cristóbal Muñoz, ten cows and twelve mares, two Reales [famous Spanish dollar “pieces-of-eight, equal to 16 pesos] for required rituals, and 15 ducats to the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament of Jalostotitlán. [In the seventeenth century in Spain and its colonies the “ducado de plata/silver ducat” was used as a measurement unit, not a minted coin. One ducado/ducat was equivalent to 375 silver maravedíes, the name of various Spanish coins and accounting units between the 11th and 19th centuries.] Livestock, such as cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, meant monetary wealth, and exactly how many head of livestock Anna González owned is unsure but it must have a lot. She additionally left to the Confraternity of Solitude of Jalostotitlán four sheep, and to the Confraternity of the Souls of Jalostotitlán two young bulls. These confraternities – Cofradías – were generally voluntary brotherhoods of lay people created for the purpose of promoting special works of Christian charity or piety, and approved by the Church hierarchy. They were organized and managed generationally by believers who would gather around an invocation of Christ, the Virgin Mary, a particular saint or saintly relic, a moment of Christ’s passion, with pious, religious and welfare purposes. As temporal bodies, they possessed properties, land, livestock, and other valuable resources.

She left as executors of her will her sons, Juan González de Hermosillo and Melchor González de Hermosillo. And finally, she bestowed seven and a half pesos to Esteban Gómez Hurtado de Mendoza, who was the “Mayordomo de fábrica” [the person who collects the revenues of the church and administrates the “fábrica/factory”, which in turn is the body or group of persons responsible for the management of the assets of the church in general income and maintenance of the parish church, both for repairs and for the celebration of divine service] and another peso for the dalmatics [long wide-sleeved tunics, usually white and made of either flax or wool, and which serve as liturgical vestments for priests in the Roman Catholic church, and which were produced in the church’s own textile “fábrica/factory”. In the Nueva Galicia of the 17th century, wool was a textile fiber worth its weight in gold or silver, hence the equivalence of “lana/wool” with money.] The fact that Ana González Florida had several sheep and donated four to the Cofradía de la Soledad (Brotherhood of Solitude) meant she had more she left to her sons and her family. Her death and burial entry was recorded by Fr. Juan Gómez de Santiago (heading). [Burial source: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-18450-50547-1?cc=1874591&wc=3J4Y-DP8:171932801,171930902,172924101]

After the death of Ana González Florida II, rumors began to spread that she had been a very cruel woman who had accumulated her fortune because she supposedly had been the secret mastermind behind a ruthless ring of robbers and bandits that terrorized carriers and other people of the local region, stealing their livestock and money, amassing an enormous fortune – and then was never heard from again. This disappearance, attributed to her death, later metamorphosed into the legend that her ghost, or disembodied spirit, wandered the dark nights. She would appear as the specter of a beautiful woman, who upon turning her face, would reveal a monstrous and horribly deformed face. Additional embellishments to the legend blamed her for continuing crimes, aided by fierce animals that she had the power to control. This legend became known regionally, particularly in Valle de Guadalupe, as “La Conseja de la Vieja del Concilio” – a sort of Llorona alteña. Locals say that they have seen her wandering the old dirt roads (caminos reales) where she used to assault her victims. Some old people used to say that when she appeared, many thought she was the Llorona, but since they never heard her cry, they knew it was La Vieja del Concilio, so they ran even faster.”

This biography of Ana González Florida II represents a compendium of perspectives from various sources across time. Worthy of particular gratitude are everyone who have contributed to the discussion above, and all previous individuals who have researched, preserved, and conveyed the story of Ana González Florida II – her son Melchor González de Hermosillo, her parroco Martín Casillas y Cabrera [Source: “Historia de Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos y del culto de esta milagrosa imagen” por Alberto Santoscoy, 1903 [pages 152-153] https://books.google.com/books?id=H74MAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false], Rito Romo Franco, Jorge Humberto Romo Barba, Jaime Holcombe, Mariano González Leal [RETOÑOS DE ESPAÑA EN LA NUEVA GALICIA, Tomo I, pg. 120, 2ª.

Ricci, and Ricardo Rodríguez Camarena, Cronista de Valle de Guadalupe, Jalisco [please consult this prior node http://www.nuestrosranchos.com/en/node/16826], and so many others like me...I’m just like everyone else, just another link in the chain. Don Juan González de Hermosillo and Ana González Florida are my ancestors countless times…Doña Ana is my ancestor a total of 11 times, and Don Juan a total of 17 times (he had hijos naturales with at least two other women), so I am constantly vigilant for any new connections and discoveries regarding the genealogy of Los Altos de Jalisco.

Steven Francisco Hernández Gamiño y López de los Reyes

Thank you very much on your "Final conclusions and notes regarding Ana González Florida II".
There was a problem with robbers in the area during her lifetime but, as you said, she inherited much of her fortune from her parents, and continuing to accumulate wealth through the vast land holdings. The main home was situated in what is now Valle de Guadalupe but the land extended out.

The problem with the gangs was so bad that they sent out someone, I forget who, to be like a sergeant and protect the area so goods could pass through the area without threat. The person they sent settled in the area and is now considered one of the patriarchal families.
I never believed that she was the head of the gangs, but some of her ex employees may have joined them. It was her vast property, or close to it, that had to be crossed where these bandits would do their thing and terrorize the travelers. Once they were managed, more and more people traveled to Jalostotitlan.

Another point to the story is the mystery. Like you stated, as she aged she interacted less with the people between Tepatitlan and el Valle de Guadalupe, and moved closer to the town of Jalostotitlan. Her land was so vast that moving from one end to another was kind of like moving from one town to another. So even though she still lived on her property, it was farther away from where her parents had first established their main home. The family, employees and acquaintances she left from Tepatitlan to el Valle de Guadalupe saw much less of her as she got older and spent ever increasing time closer to Jalostotitlan. The people that she interacted more with over time were the people from Jalostotitlan.

As to the change in her personality due to the lion attack, it would be highly unusual if it had not affected her. She was a very beautiful woman, face and body, the whole package. Her height and the way she stood only made her stand out even more. It was as if she had been trained to be a model that way she carried herself. To be brutally attacked, over what must have seemed to her a long period of time, had to have affected her. The story was that they did not rush in to help her immediately because everyone was scared and the lion seemed to have had initial control of the situation. I don't know if she became a cruel woman but I would suspect that she was not the happy woman that she had been before the attack. She had everything before the attack. Beauty, inheritance, bloodlines, family, confidence, and a strong intellect. What she had been most known for before the attack was her beauty and that was taken away from her. She did continue to have everything else.

Thanks again for your work,

Rick A. Ricci

Mr. Hernández Gamiño,

You mentioned that Juan González de Hermosillo had natural born children
with two other women, do you know who the women are and their children?

Yo he descubierto que Juan González de Hermosillo II tuvo hijos naturales en por lo menos dos mujeres distintas. Una de estas mujeres fue su cuñada, hermana de su esposa Ana González Florida II - de nombre desconocido, de apellido Gutiérrez Rubio, hija de Francisco Gutiérrez Rubio y Ana González Florida I - madre de Pedro Gutiérrez de Hermosillo...más sobre esto en otra ocasión. Pero la más conocida de estas mujeres fue María Magdalena (o Magdalena María), “una india de Tonalá”, así la identifica Jaime Holcombe. Ya se había discutido este tema hace varios años - http://www.nuestrosranchos.com/en/node/19313 & http://www.nuestrosranchos.com/en/node/19311. Por favor consulten estos nódulos para más información.

Juan González de Hermosillo II aparece como tronco o eslabón en muchas dispensas matrimoniales ubicadas en la Sagrada Mitra de Guadalajara. En el libro “Sagrada Mitra de Guadalajara: Antiguo Obispado de la Nueva Galicia – Expedientes de la serie de matrimonios extractos siglos XVII-XVIII” por María de la Luz Montejano Hilton aparecen referencias a 25 dispensas diferentes que mencionan a “Juan González de Hermosillo”. Hay una muy relevante en la página 50, número 219, con fuente de Rollo 167979, que corresponde a la siguiente en FamilySearch.org (Mexico, Jalisco, Catholic Church Records, 1590-1979, Guadalajara, Diócesis de Guadalajara, Matrimonios 1690-1693, 1708-1709 [Image 299-304 of 318] - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-18413-1867-34?cc=1874591&wc=3J4Q-ZNP:171935001,171974101,175791001], y a la cual que aquí me refiero.

Se otorgó la dispensa en la Villa de Aguascalientes, en 2 de enero de 1709. Ya después de conseguir dicha dispensa, los contrayentes pudieron legalmente casarse, lo cual hicieron el día 30 de enero de 1709, en la Parroquia de San Francisco de Asís, Tepatitlán.

A base de los datos presentados por los tres testigos de esta dispensa matrimonial, se pueden reconstruir los siguientes dos parentescos distintos:

La pretensa menciona que su madre, Magdalena Carranza (al parecer aun viva en 1708-1709), es hija de Diego Sánchez Carranza y de Ana González (o Ana Muñoz), ya difuntos. Su abuela Ana González (o Ana Muñoz), fue hija mestiza de María Magdalena o Magdalena María, "una india de Tonalá" [así la identifica Jaime Holcombe en sus cartas], en la jurisdicción de Juanacatlán, y de Juan González de Hermosillo, hacendado español. Los datos indican que Ana, la hija mestiza de Magdalena, india, y Juan, español, nació hacia 1615. Por estas fechas Juan González de Hermosillo aun era soltero, pero muy pronto después él se casó con Ana González Florida II, hacia 1617 más o menos. Los testigos dicen que Ana González-Muñoz y María González de Hermosillo eran hermanas, pero en realidad eran medias hermanas - obviamente hijas de madres diferentes pero del mismo padre.

SFHL

In this letter, Jaime Holcombe refers to a 1686 marriage dispensation with two different blood relationships, but of particular interest is the second lineage where Juan González de Hermosillo and Ana-María Muñoz appear as the tronco. They were the parents of full brothers Juan González de Hermosillo and Francisco Muñoz Cabeza (de Vaca). Juan González de Hermosillo fathered Ana Muñoz-González, an illegitimate mestiza, about 1615, in an indian woman from Tonallan (Tonalá) named María Magdalena, shortly before he married his legitimate wife Ana González Florida. Juan's brother Francisco Muñoz Cabeza was married ca. 1624, in Jalostotitlán to Francisca de Torres, after whom the bride in the dispensa is named.

Ana Muñoz-González married Diego Sánchez Carranza, both identified and recognized as mestizos, and whose death records are both located in Jalostotitlán.

Your notes on three documents that you let me have are very interesting. I would like to comment about them, and add information that I have, should it be of interest to you.
1. Marriage dispensa in Jalos, 27 April 1686 for Tomás de Paez and Francisca de Torres. Twice blood related in the fourth to the third degree.
The surname "Paez" stands for de la Paz y Cortés.
The first tree is as follows:

Tronco: Jerónimo de Benavides and Catalina Cortés

María Benavides------------------------ 1st-------------- Jerónima Benavides
md. Carlos Lomelín md. 1) Nicolás (Paez) de la Paz y Cortés

Domingo Lomelín---------------------- 2nd------------- Francisco (Paez) de la Paz y Cortés
md. Juana de Mendoza md. Francisca Sánchez Carranza

[Joseph de Lomelín]----------------------- 3rd---------- Thomas de Páez, the groom
[+Micaela de Hermosillo]

Francisca Torres, the bride--------------- 4th

Jerónima de Benavides' second husband was Diego de Aguayo, with whom she also had offspring. Juana de Mendoza's parents were Manuel Gómez and Catalina de Mendoza.
This is the second tree:

Tronco: Juan González de Hermosillo and María Muñoz

Juan González de Hermosillo--------- 1st-------------- Francisco Muñoz Cabessa
had an illegitimate daughter md. Francisca de Torres
an Indian from Tonallán (Tonalá)

Ana Muñoz (mestiza)------------------ 2nd------------- Micaela de Hermosillo
md. Diego Sánchez Carranza md Joseph de Lomelín
(mestizo)

Francisca Sánchez Carranza----------- 3rd------------- Francisca Torres, the bride
[+Francisco de Páez]

Thomas de Páez, the groom ----------- 4th

A dispensa on file states that Juan González de Hermosillo, married to Ana González Florida, was the natural father of Ana Muñoz, conceived with an Indian woman in Tonallán (Tonalá).
You'll note that the bride used the same name as that of her maternal grandmother. She appears in the 1685 Jalos Census as "doncella." I knew she'd married some de la Paz y Cortés from dispensas of descendants, but you filled in the marriage blank space.
The couple did not remain in Jalos long, and don't know where they settled. A son, Antonio de la Paz y Cortés y Lomelín, married Antonia Arias de Ibarra. They were not in Jalos. Two of their daughters married there the same date (5 June 1737), Francisca Alejandra and Catalina de la Paz y Cortés y Arias de Ibarra, to two brothers: José Joaquín and Ignacio Pérez Franco y Hermosillo (sons of Capt. Juan Pérez de Paredes and Gertrudis de Hermosillo y Camarena). José Joaquín's and Francisca Alejandra's son, Juan José Gabriel Pérez Franco y de la Paz y Cortés had to obtain a dispensa, on 15 Oct 1761, to allow his marriage (celebrated 11 Nov 1761) to a blood relative, María Gertrudis González de Hermosillo y Sánchez. In that dispensa is where Francisca de Torres appears, and her son, Antonio de la Paz y Cortés. Since the 1737 weddings, they're all "españoles."
I didn't have Marcos Carranza, the witness at the 1686 dispensa, as the latter couple's son. Looking through my notes, I found a Jalos death that brought out another stem from a second illegitimate coupling. States the death entry:
"En Jalostotitlán, el 5 de agosto de 1672, Marcos Carranza, vecino de la jurisdicción de Juanacatlán, trajo a enterrar a su cuñado, Fluxencio González, soltero."
"Fluxencio" is Fulgencio.

Jaime Holcombe

In the previous entry I forgot to provide source documentation for the Marriage Dispensation of Tomás de Páez (plus his signature) and Francisca de Torres. It can be located in Montejano Hilton's book and on FamilySearch.org. Plus the spacing of the information made it a bit confusing...I added spacing periods.

Ana Muñoz, también conocida como Ana González, fue hija mestiza natural de Juan González de Hermosillo y de María Magdalena (o Magdalena María), una india natural del pueblo de Tonallan (Tonalá), localizado en la jurisdicción de la Encomienda de Juanacatlán. Allí nació ella hacia 1614, cuando su padre español Juan González de Hermosillo aun era soltero y labraba como hacendado por la región de Juanacatlán y tuvo relaciones con una india identificada como María Magdalena (o Magdalena María). La historia de Ana y sus padres, Juan y Magdalena, está documentada en varias dispensas matrimoniales de la Sagrada Mitra de Guadalajara.

Anna Muñoz-González se casó con Diego Sánchez Carranza hacia 1632 (cuando ella tenía unos 16 años), en la Jurisdicción de Juanacatlán o en el Valle de Jalostotitlán. Se ha registrado que esta pareja tuvo por lo menos unos siete hijos, residentes luego de la comarca de Jalostotitlán.

Ana Muñoz tenía cumplidos unos 51 años de edad cuando murió el día 7 de enero de 1665 (mestiza casada con Diego Sánchez Carranza), y sepultada en Jalostotitlán.
