Juan Jose Jaquez was married to Maria Rosalia Villalpando in New Mexico. She is the daughter of Juan Pablo Francisco Villalpando and probably, Francisca Lujan, although he may have had another wife before Francisca.

There is little known about Juan Jose Jaquez. He owned land near Taos. He was killed during a Comanche Raid on 4 Aug 1760. His wife, Maria Rosalia, was taken captive and traded by the Comanches to another tribe and thereafter married the french fur trapper Jean Sale dit Lejoie. They are considered one of the colonial couples that settled St. Louis, Missouri. When Maria Rosalia died in St. Louis she was known as Marie Rose Vidalpane. Her only child by Juan Jose Jaquez, Jose Julian, visited her in St. Louis in 1803.

The great-grandchildren of Juan Jose Jaquez and Maria Rosalia Villalpando (children of Felipe de Jesus, and Jose Julian's grandchildren) were founders of San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado, in 1851. I descend from Felipe de Jesus' daughter,Maria Guadalupe, through her daughter, Maria Carmelita Trujillo, whose son was Juan Antonio Rael, whose daughter, Manuelita de Atocha Rael, was my grandmother, mother of Maria Odila Cordova de Olivas, my mother. I am a sixth generaltion Coloradan as a consequence of descending from this founding family in Colorado.

BUT who were Juan Jose Jaquez' parents? Fray Angelico Chavez said Juan Jose was "from a prominent family from Paso del Norte" (then in New Mexico, now Juarez, Chihuahua). I believe that the Jaquez of Durango, Chihuahua, and New Mexico all descend from the same ancestors - but who were they? Has anyone done that research? I would love to know more.
