Decendents of Bartolome Romero (1528-1631) down to Jose Manuel Ricardo (Marquez) Romero (1772 - 1847) Son of Gertrudis Romero are clearly documented even though the father of Jose Manuel is unknown. Jose Manuel is documented as useing his Mother Gertrudis surname (Romero) and his close association with his Grandfather Jose Romero.
Historicaly the early Romero's in New Mexico were involved in military activities as well as regional politics. The later Romero's who I will post next were more actively involved in farming but may have been on occasion active in military and political life.
I will start this next phase of decendancy with my two time Greatgrandfather:
