José and Antonio Gallegos were brothers who came to New México sometime prior to the Pueblo Revolt. José was married and had three children by 1680, the family escaping the massacre while he was with the Leyva escort part at Guadalupe de Paso. He does not appear in the 1681 lists because he had fled the refugee colony. Having returned or been brought back, he and his family came to New Mexico with the Reconquest.
Antonio, the brother of José, escaped in 1680, probably taking his absent brother's family with him. He himself was married and had two very samll children. He was present at Guadalupe del Paso the following year and signed up for the Othermín Campaign. He was described as a native of Vizcaya (Parral), married in New México, tall & slim, haveing a long face, large eyses, blond hair and beard.
