• Background Information. 252
Cristóbal Baca was referred to as a nephew of Antoio Baca, signed the muster-roll as a captain, married, with three grown sons and three daughters. He was the son-in-law of Diego de Trujillo, both of whom were persecuted by the Governor, López Mendizábal.
Cristóbal's wife was Ana Moreno de Lara, and it seems as though Cristóbal was dead by 1687, when she and some of her children are mentioned. There were the girls, Catalina, Juana, and Luisa; and the sons, José, Manuel and Ignacio, who must have been the third child mentioned by his father in the muster-roll. José and Manuel were mentioned with their father in 1682. One of the daughters, Catalina Married Antonio Gallegos, Juana became the wife of Francisco Xavier II, and Luisa appears to be the woman of the name who was the second wife of Ignacio de Aragón.

Information from a prenuptial investigation record shows that Cristóbal Baca (md. with Ana Moreno de Lara; ONMF: 10) and Ignacio Baca (md. with Juana de Anaya; ONMF: 10-11 & 141) were brothers. It was incorrectly presumed that this Ignacio Baca was a son of Cristóbal Baca, but the following information from a diligencia matrimonial dated 1766 provides different evidence:
4th degree consanguinity between Cristóbal Montoya, son of Diego Antonio Montoya and María Magdalena Baca, and Margarita Lucero, daughter of Miguel Lucero and Nicoalsa González
Ignacio Baca ||1st degree (brothers) ||Cristóbal Baca|
|Margarita Baca|| 2nd degree (cousins) || Manuel Baca|
|Miguel Lucero||3rd degree (2nd cousins) || María Magdalena Baca|
Margarita Lucero ||4th degree (3rd cousins) || Cristóbal Montoya
Margarita Baca, wife of Diego Lucero de Godoy, was a known daughter of Ignacio Baca and doña Juana de Anaya Almazán. Her cousin Manuel Baca, married with María de Salazar, was a known son of Cristóbal Baca and doña Ana Moreno de Lara.
