Hi. I know this MADRID was before yours, but in my family, names are carried from generation to generation to honor our ancestors.
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.
