Juan Montaño was also know as "el Cuate." he married Juana Gallegos, sister to Joaquín Gallegos. They had two children, Quiteria, born 23 Jan 1729, and Nicolás*. When their mother died died on 6 Mar 1729, two moths after Quiteria's death, the children must have been reared by theTomás García family, since both bore this name up to the time of their marriage, but reverted to Montaña after that time. Both were married on the same day, 15 Aug 1734. Nicolás to a Quiteria Romero, and his siter Quiteria to Andrés Martín Serrano. *

*Since the son of Juan Montaño, Nicolas García is listed as the deceased husand of Quiteria Romero, age 38, in the Census of 1750, he would have been born around 1712. Juana Gallegos, first wife of Juan Montaño, was baptized in 1710 and was only two years old when Nicholas was born. He can therefore not be the son of Juana Gallegos.

• Background Information. 1509
Since the son of Juan Montaño, Nicolas García is listed as the deceased husand of Quiteria Romero, age 38, in the Census of 1750, he would have been born around 1712. Juana Gallegos, first wife of Juan Montaño, was baptized in 1710 and was only two years old when Nicholas was born. He can therefore not be the son of Juana Gallegos.

There is no records that show who Nicolás García Montaño's mother was, but since he went by the name Nicolás García, it is likely that he was the natural son of a woman with that name. There are records that prove that Nicolás was the son of Juan Montaño. One record is in the pre-nuptial investigation for Nicolás's son Juan Antonio Montaño. [Chávez, New Mexico Roots, Ltd., vol. 4, p. 597]

Nicolás García is listed in 1739 among the Tomé grantees & was one of the first settlers there. His children born after this time were there baptized at Isleta rather than Alburquerque as his earlier children were.

In documents dated during his life time, he is always referred to as Nicolás García. The first time Nicolás is referred to as a Montaño is in the marriage records for his daughter Rita Romero married Juan Domingo Torres in 1766. He is referred to again in pre-nuptial investigation in 1767.
