Pedro Antonio Chávez, son of Diego Antonio Chávez and Juana Silva, married María Catalina Baca in September, 1772. He was a stockman, forty years old, residing at Atrisco in 1790; his wife was thirty. Their place of residence in 1803 was the second Plaza of San Fernando at Los Chávez.
Their children, according to the records, were the following: María Juliana, March 14, 1774; María Gertrudis, November 11, 1777; María Toribia, April 7, 1779; the twins, Ana Teresa and Juana María, October 23, 1780; María Gregoria, November 29, 1781; Tomás Mauricio, September 25, 1784; Rafael Antonio, October 20, 1787, who married Polonia García at Cebolleta, December 10, 1830; María Guadalupe, December 20, 1800, who married Juan Policarpio Serna at Cebolleta, September 24, 1815; Francisca Antonia, February 15, 1802; and Diego Antonio, who married Barbara Baca, or Jaramillo, August 11, 1816, at Cebolleta. A census list of the family at Atrisco in 1802 omits the first three girls, who must have died or were already married, and includes two more boys, José Julián and Ambrosio. José Julián might well be the firstborn, entered as a girl by mistake in the register of 1774, and who married María Luz García.
