bullet  Noted events in their marriage were:

• Diligencia Matrimonial. 248
4 Nov 1694, Santa Fé. Bernardino Fernandez (23), español, native of Real de Sombrerete and soldier of Santa Fé Presidio, son of Juan de Santiago and Melchora de los Reyes, and Ines Gonzales (Martín in testimony), native of Santa Fe, daughter of Juan Gonzles Bernal and Josefa de Zaldivar. - Witnesses: Ignacio Losano (29), native of Sombrerete; Pedro Hinojos (18), native of Sombrerete; Simón de Molina (44), native of Mexico City; Antonio Montoya (50), native of Santa Fé. Pair married, 10 Nov 1694, with witnesses Lt. Gen Luis Granillo and Capt. Antonio Jorge. - Impediment later brought up, 14 Nov by Ventura Apodaca, Santa Fe Presidio soldier, claiming that Ines Gonzales had promised to marry him a moth and a half before. Apodaca claimed this his marriage to her had been impeded through the questioning of a María Montaño and a Sebastiana Martín, simply because he would not enter the home where this Sebastiana lived. In her own defense, Apodaca claimed that Ines Gonzales herself had raised an immpediment; he had known her since they came to Santa Fé eleven months before; in his stead, a vecino had gone to her house to ask for her hand from her parents, accompanied by José el Cantor, called el Ciego, when her parents had agreed to think it over; then Ines Gonzales requested some stocking from him (as a sign of pledge) through that María Montaño, who was his own niece; hence he had pledged his word to Ynes about a month and a half ago, when he heard that she was to marry a Toribio Gonzales, soldier and carretero. Apodaca then summoned Ines Gonzales through Sebastian Martín and she pledged her word to him, while he gave her as a pledge a bronze crucifix, which that woman Sebastiana kept so that the relatives of Ines Gonzales would not know about it. Ines in her turn gave him a bronze ring and medal which he lost; that he had sent Ines the crucifix through a married woman named Tomasa, with whom he had slept, was completely false, since he did not know said female.

The rest of Apodaca's testimony is not clear, but he ends by saying that Ines Gonzales' folks surrendered her to groom Bernardino Fernández on night, on a bed atop the flat roof of the house. Here Sebastian Gonzales, and uncle of Ines, also tells an intricate story, admitting that Apodaca had sent Ines a tin crucifix through a lass named Tomasa, with whom Apodaca enjoyed an illicit love; she (Ines or Tomasa) had always lived alone with her grandmother Apolonia Varela. - Ines Gonzales herself testified that Sebastiana Martín was considered a demented person by all, and on two occasions had been confined as a loca at El Real de San Lorenzo; the bronze ring in question had been made by her brother, Juan Gonzales, a joyero by trade; he had made eight of them for María Montaña de Apodaca, a niece of Ventura Apodaca. - Other witnesses mentioned: José Luis Valdes and Juan Cortes, as also two aunts of Ines Gonzales, Melchora de los Reyes and Antonia Gonzales.
