• Background Information. 252
Bartolomé Romero de Pedraza was an adjuntant when he escaped from Santa Fe with Governor Otermín and his people in 1680. He was referred to in the following year as the Adjutant, not married at the time, a native of New Mexico, and forty years old. He was slender, of good stature, having a thick heavy beard and thick wavy hair. A pre-Revolt house at La Cañada was mentioned in 1696 as that of Bartolomé Romero, very possibly this man's, since Romero de Pedraza folk returned to this general area; or it could have belonged to any of the many Bartolomés of the century. It appears, from post-Reconquest data, that his wife was Luisa Varela, and that they had a son, Matías, who married Angela Vallejo, and a daughter, Juana, who became the wife of Juan de Ribera.
