- Born: España
- Marriage: Nicolasa Obando on 30 Jan 1770 in Santiago, Nopalucán, Puebla, Nuevo España 1489
Other names for Antonio were Antonio Beserra and Antonio Bezerra.
The name Becerra is no where to be found in New Mexico before Tomás Antonio Becerra married Marría de la Luz Archuleta in Taos on 8 Aug 1815. The marriage record names Tomas Antonio Becerra as the son of Don Antonio Becerra and Doña Nicolasa Obando. The only people in New Mexico/Mexico with these names that I could locate and were married to each other are Antonio Becerra and Nicolasa Obando who given as the parents of Ygnacio baptized in Santiago, Nopalucán, Puebla in 1794; Cayetano, baptized in Acatzingo, Pueblo in 1782; Gabriel, baptized in 1778 in Santiago, Nopalucán, Puebla; José Augustín baptized in 1774 in Santiago, Nopalucán, Puebla. New Mexico Cesuses give the age of Tomás Becerra the age of 62 in 1833 which would give him a birth date of about 1771, which would fit with the children of Antonio and Nicolasa. I have yet to find a baptismal record for Tomás Becerra, so for now this is just a speculation that the parents named in Tomás's marriage record, Don Antonio Becerra and Doña Nicolasa Obando are the same Antonio Becerra and Nicolasa Obando of Puebla.
