Ma Dolores Xiron, Spanish, 45 yrs (DOB 1745); three sons aged 16 (DOB 1774), 14 (DOB 1776), and 7 (DOB 1783); and one nephew, 25, a weaver.

Page 127-8 of the 1802 Census in Albuquerque: Ma Franca Gutierrez, Leonardo Gutierrez. Then on next two lines, the following: Ma Jiron; and Tomasa Gutierrez.

Nicolas Xiron also lived in Carnuel, as his eye-witness testimony during the 1768 investigation of the stolen cattle by Francisco Garcia and Gregorio Montoya indicates. He did not state his relationship to Leonardo Gutierrez, nor Gregorio Gutierrez, but he did state that his age was more than 40 years, which would make his date of birth at least 1728. [SANM II 1767-1779 Reel 10, Frames #405-445, Twitchell #636, LDS 0581468]

Leonardo Gutierrez is not listed as an original petitioner in 1763, although his father Gregorio Gutierrez was. He did sign a petition in April 1771 stating that his family, along with other settlers would not return to the grant after they had fled to Albuquerque following an attack by the Apache.
