Hello Primos.I was surprised to see no one has posted about the Gallegos family in Socorro, NM.Its a big family.Great thanks to Uncle Dennis Gallegos, who has researched and preserved a lot our family history.We can trace the line back to the early 1700's, to Sebastian Gallegos, who married Quitera Montoya. I am putting together a website that will allow us to view our entire family tree and some history going back to Sebastian.For the purpose of searches, I will quickly list the line...Andres Gallegos (1890-1988)was my great Grandfather.Mt grandfather was Dick Gallegos (1921-2001), my father Rick (Ricky) Gallegos (1955 - ).I am Richard (Rick)Gallegos, born in 1975.
Parents of Andres Gallegos:Augustine Gallegos (born c. 1867) and Rosalia Lucero (born Sept 05, 1860).
Parents of Augustine Gallegos:Thomas Gallegos (born Dec 21, 1851) and Encarnacion Abeyta (born c. 1851).
Parents of Thomas Gallegos:Antonio Leocadio Gallegos (born 1775) and Gertrudis Garcia (Born c. 1775).
Parents of Antonio Gallegos:Pasquel Gallegos and Candelaria Chavez, who both must have been born circa 1750.
Parents of Pasquel Gallegos:Sebastian Gallegos and Quitera Montoya…who must have been born circa 1725.
Andres also had six bothers and sisters - (Andres, Anita, Frank, Thomas, Augustine, Conception, and Felecito -Maurico).
