Madrid Family Genealogy Forum
Hi. I know this MADRID was before yours,
but in my family, names are carried from
generation to generation to honor our
My 5th great grandmother YSABEL MCVOY remarried after her first husband JUAN MCVOY
died.(AFT 1783, probably circa 1800.) Her
second husband was MARTIN de MADRID or MARTIN
MADRID and he was a businessman in PENSACOLA
in SPANISH FLORIDA and was said to have been
born in SPAIN. Ysabel was rumoured to have
been a descendent of a Spanish princess.
There seems to be no record of whatever happened to them after around 1800. Perhaps
they went west??? Two of Ysabel's children (McVoy's) dstayed in PENSACOLA and MOBILE
and I have no clue where her son JOAQUIN(JUAN,JR.) went or the daughter ANA.
There apparently was a daughter YSABEL who was born in 1783 and married a JOSE NICHOLASA
according to the LDS on-line site.
Just wanted to share this MARTIN MADRID info
in case there may be a connection. This one
was probably born ca. 1750 approx.
