Iím looking for records of the parents of and the baptism/christening record for Bernardo Mondragon, born February 2 or 21, 1869, probably in Mora County. I believe his mother was Guadalupe Mondragon, born about 1846 in Santa Fe County. I have no idea what her husbandís name was or who he was. Any information or suggestion would be appreciated.

Guadalupe Mondragon is listed in the 1860 U.S. Census. (See census sheet for Santa Gertrudes, Mora County, NM - Page No. 347 - recorded August 6, 1860 / Ancestry.com Image No. 117.) Her age was given as 12 years old, and she was living in the household of her parents, Pedro Mondragon and Maria Rosalia Castellano.

Guadalupe Mondragon is listed in the 1870 U.S. Census. (See census sheet for 1st Precinct, Mora, Mora County, NM - Page No. 301a - recorded July 23, 1870 / Ancestry.com Image No. 1.) Her age was given as 24 years old. She was still living in her parentsí household. However, she apparently had the following five children between 1860 and 1870:

Francisca Mondragon, age 7;

Juanota Mondragon, age 6;

Catalina Mondragon, age 5;

Macedonia Mondragon, age 4; and

Bernardo Mondragon, age 3.

Neither the 1860 nor the 1870 censuses show any men in Pedro Mondragonís household who appear to be Guadalupe Mondragonís husband or the father of her five children.

I have yet to find Guadalupe Mondragon and her children in the 1880 U.S. Census, but they are no longer in her fatherís household.

Guadalupe Mondragon had at least one other child, Raymundo Mondragon. The only records of a Raymundo Mondragon that I have found are:

an LDS International Genealogical Index record of a marriage between a Raymundo Mondragon and a Moclovita Garcia on June 10, 1892 at Immaculate Conception Church in Las Vegas, San Miguel County, NM; and

a 1900 U.S. Census listing of Raymundo Mondragon, born July 1876, living in Las Vegas, San Miguel County, NM, and married to Flore Mondragon.

These Raymundo Mondragons may not be my Guadalupe Mondragonís son, but their ages and general locations near Mora make them likely her son.
