Cuellar in Southern Texas

Guerreo, Tampaulipas Church partially under waters of Falcon Dam

Dora MARTINEZ CUELLAR was the daughter of Cecilio MARTINEZ and Celia CUELLAR.

The lineage of Celia CUELLAR can be easily traced back to Martin CUELLAR and Salome CASAS who were married in 1835.

The ancestral lineage of Martin CUELLAR and Salome CASAS can be found in the lineage that goes back to the Lizarraras y Cuellar family.

In 1750 Vicente Guerra Canamar was authorized by Escandon to bring 40 families from Monterrey, NL to Revilla (Viejo Guerrero) to establish a Spanish settlement in Nuevo Santander. In 1952 Viejo Guerrero was submerged under Falcon Lake when the Falcon Dam was constructed. The Lizarraras y Cuellar family was among the first settlers to the area in Southern Texas.

This means that the ancestors of Dora MARTINEZ CUELLAR inhabited the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and northern Mexico since 1750. This means before ...

  • 1810 - Mexico declared its independence from Spain

  • 1845 - US invaded Mexico
  • 1861 - US fought the Civil War
