Denise: After I found out my Great Grandfathers name was Antonio Maria deHerrera and not Antonio Jose, I found much information. Your Herrera's are not familiar to me. We are all related you know! The first Herrera's in NM came with Onate: Bartolome deHerrera a native of Sevilla, Spain and Cristobal deHerrera, a native of Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Many of the Herrera's lived in San Juan de los Caballeros and later in Chamita, NM. Many went to Colorado around 1860.
