• Background Information, 1675. 465,467
Ana de Sandoval y Manzanares was the daughter of Mateo de Sandoval y Manzanares and the wife of Blas de la Candelaria, who died before 1680. A matrimonial record found in Parral San Diego, dated 4 June 1675, states that Bartolomé de Sandoval, native of New México, son of ____ Mateo de Sandoval, mulatto libre of New México and Juana de la Cruz, Indian servant of Capitan Don Pedro del Pozo, a miner of the same place, was to marry Luisa de la Cruz, Indian woman of San Dieglo. This suggests that Mateo was a former slave and that this is the same Mateo de Sandoval y Manzanares who was Ana's father.
