I have used Echoes of the Conquistadores to help with my research. I have always been puzzled by the Bartholome and his parents Juan Miguel Aguirre & Rosalia Rodriguez, as I have never found anything connecting them. Recently I have found another Bartholome Joseph Aguirre that I believe is truly my ancestor. He is the son of Benito Aguirre & Estefana Granillo. He is born 21 Sept 1731 in Valle de Allende (San Bartolome). His brother, Lasaro Benito, married Ana Enriquez Porras who is the widow of Antonio Valle...parents of Barbara Valle who marries Bartholomes' son Juan Antonio Aguirre. Also, Bartholomes' youngest childs' godparents are Lasaro & Ana. The Colomo family is settled in the area of Valle de Allende...which I believe Andrea, Bartholomes' wife, is from. It makes more sense that he is my ancestor. There are other connections as well, this makes more sense than what is in the book. Any opinions?
