• Background Information. 252
Agustín de Salazar was a blind interpreter, "proficient in his mother's tongue." Agustín reported the impending Indian resistance late in December, 1693, while Vargas was waiting for the Tanos to vacate Santa Fe. He was helped to safety by Miguel Luján. In 1698 he gave his age as thirty-three. His father, perhaps, was Bartolomé de Salazar, pre-Rebellion Alcalde of Zuñi and Moqui. Agustín and his wife Felipa de Gamboa had a daughter named Lugarda, who married Vicente Jirón in 1723. Another duaghter, Josefa, married Juan Lorenzo de Valdés. They also had a son named Antonio.

~The Origins of New México Families, p. 279

Agustín de Salazar and Felipa de Gamboa had another son, Miguel, who married María Trujillo, 17, of Santa Fe, on Feb. 4, 1721. His parents were still alive and residing in Santa Cruz (DM, 1721, no. 6). Felipa de Gamboa had been involved in a public scandal with Juan de Atienza in 1704 (Gen., 1704, no. 2).

Antonio de Salazar, their other son, and María de Torres had these known children at Santa Cruz: Juan Antonio, Sept. 23, 1714; and Nicolás, Sept. 17, 1721 (Gen., 1710, no. 7).

Nicolás Salazar and Lucía de Torres had a child, Nicolasa, Sept. 28, 1721; her godparents were the preceding couple (ibid.). Hence, in all likelihood, this Nicolás was another son of Agustín who had married his brother Antonio's sister-in-law.

• Background Information. 239
Augustín de Salazar was an interpreter, "proficient in his mother's tongue." Even though he was blind, he used his languge ability to warn of the impending Indian resistance that developed when Vargas was waiting for the Tanos to vacate Santa Fe. He had overheard the Indians talking about how they would defeat Vargas and informed Miguel Lujan who relayed the information to Vargas at 4 am. The fact that he was in Santa Fé in Dec of 1693 proves that he and his family made the trip north with the first reconquest settler party. The phrase, 'his mother's tongue," seems to negate Fray Angélico Chávez's suggestion that he might have been Apache and supports the fact that his mother, María de Hinojos, was indeed pueblo (Zuñi).
