Re: Concho Arizona Candelaria connection

In Reply to: Concho Arizona Candelaria connection by Criss E. Candelaria of 139

My recently deceased grandfather, Gabriel Lucero Perez, was a descendent of Don Manuel Candelaria; he was his great-grandson, specifically. My grandfather's grandfather, Tomas Perez, married Lina Candelaria, Don Manuel's daughter.

I want to say that Tomas was in his thirties or fourties when he married the teenaged "Mama Lina," who raised my grandfather until her death. As Tomas was an outsider, a Mexican, and a Freemason, the marriage was not approved of by her brothers, who according to my family, cheated her out of her inheritance.

I'm not sure what happened to all of the Candelarias in Arizona, but I know that there are many in New Mexico.

You can find more information about Don Manuel here:
