Gerónimo Márquez was the Maese de Campo of the troops, which joined Oñate in 1600. He brought his wife and five grown sons. At the time he was forty years old, a native of Sanlucar de Barrameda and the son of Hernán Muñoz Zamorano. The Puana muster-roll of 1697, shows that he held the rank of capítan of artillery. Throughout the Oñate annals, Oñate mentions him, calling him an adventurous leader. He was living at his estancia at Acomilla in the Río Abajo district as late as 1631.
Gerónimo's five sons* were: Francisco, Pedro, Juan, Hernando, and Diego. A daughter, María, became the wife of Francisco de Madrid.
