• Background Information. 252
Domingo González was a native of Portugal, the brother of another soldier in New Mexico, Sebastián González. Domingo is first mentioned in 1617 as an Alférez forty-five years old who knew Geronimo Márquez for seventeen years, hence had been in the New World since 1600. In 1625 he was mentioned as a Captain, with his son Domingo, as escorts of the wagon-train to Mexico City.

He must have brought his whole family back to New Spain with the intention of not returning to New Mexico, for in 1627 he was ordered to return with his wife and children or else incur heavy penalties. Later, in 1660, his children mentioned this trip when they testified that, after having been confirmed by Fray Perea in New Mexico, the entire family, including the parents, had been re-confirmed by a Bishop in New Spain.

In 1631, Domingo declared that he was sixty years old and a brother of the Alférez Sebastián González. His wife was Magdelena de Carvajal. His wife was most likely a daughter of Juan de Vitoria Carvajal. Their known children were Juan, Diego, and Domingo, and their sisters, who came to be known as the "González Lobón" family, probably harking back to a Lobón grandparent; as such they were distinguished from their first cousins, the "González Bernal" family group.
