Alonso Rael de Aguilar II, often referred to as "El Mozo" followed in his father's steps as a military figure. In 1715 he was involved in a serious case when he stabbed a soldier fatally and then sought sanctuary in various mission churches. In 1745 he made his last will, in which he stated that he was a native of New Mexico who had lived in Santa Fe for forty-eight years. His first wife was Tomasa Montoya, married eighteen years when she died, by whom he had the following six children: Alonso III, Josefa, Francisca, Manuela, Margarita (died when five), and Julián Lorenzo.

He had been married a second time, for eighteen years also, to Melchora de Sandoval Martínez, by whom he had two children, Tomasa and José. Tomasa Montoya had died on 20 May 1727, and was buried near the altar of La Conquistadora.

Alonso then married Melchora at her home (because she was ill) on 9 Feb 1729. He died on 15 Mar 1745; Melchora lived on until 21 Oct 1783. Both Alonso and his father left behind a reputation of heavy gamblers.

Of his children, Alonso III went to study in New Spain in 1750, and is not heard of again; Josefa married Juan Manuel Sandoval in 1733 ; Francisca became the wife of Juan González in 1747; Manuela married Baltasar Baca (q.v.); Julián Lorenzo married Teresa González, and died on 24 Jan 1799, at the age of seventy-two, and Feliciana, not mentioned in her father's will, had married Salvador Martin in 1743. Of the two children by the second wife, Tomasa married Salvador de Ribera in 1747, while José (Pablo) married María Barbara Baca; he enlisted as a soldier in 1759 when twenty-five years of age.
