About Juan Rodriguez Bellido
He was a soldier who came with the second wave of settlers who came to New Mexico on Christmas Eve 1600. He was also a member of the loyalist group that stayed in New México while many coloniest returned to New Spain.
Juan Rodríguez Bellido was son of Francisco Núñez and a native of Xilbraléon in Castilla. He was fourty in 1600, and was described as well-bearded with a scar under the left eye. He is perhaps the Juan Rodríguez in the soldier escorts of 1606 and 1609.
His wife was named Isabel. She was involved in some witchcraft dealings in 1607. Later their son, Diego, was said to have died as a result of black magic. In 1627, Juan was seventy years old and considered one of the "antiguos pobladores."
His son Diego's name is found carved in Inscription rock. He had two other known daughters. Lucía was twenty in 1631, and married to Francisco Luján. María, his second daughter, was married to Francisco Márquez.
