Pedro could well have returned to New Mexico with the Reconquest. He was listed as a member of the Conquistadora Confraternity in 1689. His wife, Isabel López de Gracia, was alone mentioned as dead in 1692, when a daughter got married; but in 1698 both parents were referred to as deceased when a son got married. Their known children were: Isabel, who married Juan Varela Jaramillo at San Lorenzo del Paso in 1692;1 Casilda, wife of Cristóbal Jaramillo; Felipa, married to Francisco Anaya Almazán; and the sons, Joaquín, Juan, and Pedro. Of this younger Pedro nothing is known except that he was twenty years old in 1694, and worked in the re-building of San Miguel chapel in 1710.
