In a petition presented to fray Nicolás Hurtado dated April 8, 1682 at El Real de San Lorenzo near El Paso del Norte, José Domínguez de Mendoza (ONMF: 169-70) requested to enter into the state of matrimony according to the order of "Nuestra Santa Madre Yglesia," "Our Holy Mother Church." He identified himself as a native of New Mexico and a son of Ana Velásquez and an unknown father. According to a marriage certificate, he was married on April 19, 1682 with Juana López (ONMF: 58), a daughter of Sargento Mayor Diego López Sambrano and María de Suaso, all natives of New Mexico, originally residents of the Villa de Santa Fe. From this union there was born a son, Domingo Domínguez, and a daughter, María Domínguez prior to the death of Juana López.

A widower by 1692, José Domínguez de Mendoza, holding the military rank of alférez, participated in the efforts of don Diego de Vargas to restore New Mexico to the Spanish crown. In this endeavor, he was reunited in October 1692 with his sister, Juana Domínguez, who had been taken captive by the Pueblo Indians during the revolt of 1680.
