Early Settlers of Camargo: Jose Antonio Villarreal and Maria Catarina Hinojosa

Jose Antonio Villarreal and Maria Catarina Hinojosa

One of the early settlers of Camargo is the family of Jose Antonio Villarreal and Maria Catarina Hinojosa. This family appears listed in the Camargo census of 1750.

The census indicates that Jose Antonio was killed by Indians and Maria Catarina appears as a widow along with their eight children. Below I have included the image and a transcription of the census.

Jose Antonio Villarreal is the son of Joseph de Villarreal and Maria de Oropeza. His wife Maria Catarina Hinojosa is the daughter of Diego de Hinojosa and Josepha de la Garza.

Below are the names of their children and whom they married. For more descendants of theirs please visit our Community Family Tree. This family also appears in the books "Last Names of Nuevo Leon: Villarreal" and "Last Names of Nuevo Leon: Hinojosa".

  1. This is the first mention I have read or heard about Indios in the area where my grandmother’s ancestors lived; she claimed to be part Spanish and part Indian and her father was from Villareal and Garza ancestors.
