Hi-I have been researching the Marrons for over 35 yrs (of both
My paternal ancestor was Ygnacio's younger brother, Juan (bapt.
Jose Juan Paz Marron, 1834), who came north with his parents and
siblings from the La Paz area before1840 but after 1837 (when a
daughter is born in La Paz) .
Their father, Juan, ran a ranch in El Rosario in 1840 and in 1851,
the family went north, ending up in Los Angeles. Juan the son married
Juana Blasa Morales in 1856. It was a family member in El Rosario who
told me that he ran the ranch which I have been unable to locate or
confirm. Younger Juan eventually ends up in the San Telmo area where he has children with another woman (1870s).
I have visited many times with the various descendents of Ignacio in
El Rosario, and over 20 years ago met Ygnacio's and Juan's brother.s
(Jose del Rosario) granddaughter, Josefa, in Santo Domingo.
I will be down in the area of El Rosario in 8 weeks and would like to
meet more of Ygnacio's family. Last year I finally located the family (in Phoenix, AZ) of baby brother, Julio, born in 1860, and was given wonderful photos of Julio and youngest brother Francisco Marron.
Can we exchange info? I have over 150 Marrons in my database and that
is mostly Baja California Marrons pre-1930. Haven't gotten many of
the Alta California families in tho they all descend from the same guy
(1760) San Antonio, BCS.
Do you know David Marron in San Diego?
