• Background Information. 252
Diego González de Apodaca, an Alférez, is mentioned in New Mexico as being in prison in October, 1661, and at least until May, 1662, condemned to death for incest with his step-daughters. Their mother was a sister of Captain Andrés López de Gracia. His place of origin is not known. He resided with his wife and family in the Salinas district, probably at Tajique. From the marriage of his son, José, we learn that his wife's name was Sebastiana López de Gracía. Diego was not executed, for he was reported two years later as staying with his family at a brother-in-law's house on the Río del Norte. After this period he is not heard of again, having died or left New Mexico prior to 1680, for he does not appear in the Revolt lists. His wife's antecedents are difficult to unravel. Apparently, she had been first married to a Montaño; at least this was the surname of her three daughters, Magdalena, Catalina, and María Montaño.
