I'm searching for any info. on my maternal ggg grandmother, Pelegrina Aguilar (b. abt. 1830-1835). The earliest census I found her in was in the 1870 Census (Mora County), she is shown (age 35)living with her husband, Jose Antonio Lucero (50), Juana (18), Margarita (14), Alejandro (12), Juana (9), Emelia (6), and Cleofas (4). Juana (the older) and Margarita were daughters from his first marriage (from ?)
In the 1880 census, shows Jose Antonio (62), Pelegrina (50), Margarita (22), Alejandro (20), Juanita (18), and Francisco Apodaco (servant, age 11).Emelia, their daughter, was my maternal gg grandmother (who later married Marcelo Montoya). By 1880, they are shown in Mora County in the Town of Coyote (Upper).
What we've been told by an elderly cousin of ours is that Jose Antonio Lucero married a widow, Pelegrina Aguilar, who already had children (I know one of which was Jesusita Apodaca). When Jose Antonio Lucero married Pelegrina, she was pregnant from her late husband (Apodaca). She gave birth to Alejandro and he was raised as Antonio's own.
I can't seem to find much information on Maria Pelegrina Aguilar or who her parents might have been. Also, I do not know who her first husband was only that his last name was Apodaca.
