About Margarita Gómez Robledo

Margarita Gómez Robledo born about 1677 in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Margarita married Jacinto Peláez [1670-] on 13 June 1691 in Guadalupe del Paso. He was a native of Villanueva, Asturias. A land grant was given to Jacinto at Jacona near San Ildefonso. They had two daughters. María married Juan Fernández de la Pedrera and Jacinta married {1} Antonio de Luna {2} Antonio Montoya. Margarita died young, and Jacinto then married Isabel de Cháves.

The six daughters of Andrés Gomez Robledo grew up glorifying the statue of La Conquistadora, making and caring for her wardrobe, etc. The statue of the Virgin Mary was taken to Guadalupe del Paso during the 1680 Revolt and returned to Santa Fe with the 1693 re-entry of the Spanish into New Mexico. The historic wooden statue, brought to New Mexico in 1625 by the Spanish, is today housed in the Cathedral of St. Francis in Santa Fe. A Catholic confraternity was named in her honor, and there is a festival every year in Santa Fe to honor her.
