Widowed of his first wife, Manuel Vallejo entered into his second marrige with María Getrudis López de Arteaga. According to the banns of matrimony of this couple, which were recorded at the Catedral de México, Ciudad México, on May 6, 1691, María Getrudis was a daughter of Bernabé López and María Benites. Manuel and María Getrudis were married at the Sagrario of the Catedral de México on May 20, 1691. Witnesses to this union were Joseph Vasarena and Francisco de Herrera. The oficiating priest was once again Bachiller Manuel Delgado Monzón.
Manuel Vallejo and his wife enlisted as colonists for New Mexico in 1693. María Getrudis was in the last months of a pregnancy when this expedition to New Mexico left Mexico City in early September 1693. Something around mid-late September 1693, María Getrudis went into labor, and died in childbirth. It appears that her child survived the birth since subsequent muster rolls show an additional child in the household of Manuel Vallejo. This additional child was a son.
