I am new to this site. Doing research on my great grandmother and her family from Aguascalientes area. My grandfather was born at a place called Hacienda de la Punta to an Apolonio Gallardo and Magdalena Victorino Rico. Does anyone know if this place still exists? I would love to visit if it does. His birth was registered at Cienega de Mata.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Virginia,

Welcome to the group! I don’t have the Gallardo nor Rico families in my lines, but I’m sure they married into mine. Several of my lines lived in the parish of Cienega de Mata, Ojuelos, and in the surrounding parishes. Most of the haciendas in the area belonged to the Rincon Gallardo family, who might be your ancestors. When was your grandfather born?

La Punta still exists, as far as I know, it’s now a hotel.

Thank you for answering. My grandfather was Salvador Rico Gallardo, born August 1917 or 1918. Both are listed in Ancestry. My mother says 1918. He was about 2 years old when Magdalena Rico crossed the border. She lived in Yuma, AZ until her death.
Magdalena's parents were Francisco Rico and Teodora Victorino. They married in Ledesmo, but moved to Hacienda de la Punta soon after. Their first child was born there (Tomas Rico).
