Juan Santiago LONGORIA Flores was born about 1815 in Camargo, Nuevo Santander, New Spain. The 1860 Census showed his age to be 52 (could be 62), which would make his birth year 1808. However, Juan Longoria registered with the Mexican Consul in Brownsville on February 13, 1875, and that document lists his age as 60 years, which would make his birth year 1815. This would have been the year before he was baptized. I believe the registration document is more accurate than the 1860 Census when it comes to age. Thus, I am assuming he was born in 1815. He was baptized on 5 December 1816 in Camargo, Nuevo Santander, New Spain.2462 The baptism records of Camargo (in Ancestry.com) show his name to be Juan Santiago Longoria, that he was baptized on Dec. 5, 1816, and that the parents were Pedro Longoria and Nicolasa Flores. He died on 21 February 1892 at the age of 77 in La Grulla, Starr County, TX, USA. Juan was buried in La Grulla, Starr County, TX, USA.298 He is buried in the same vault as his son Eugenio Longoria, his mother Maria Nicolasa Flores, his wife Yrinea Villarreal Longoria and his daughter Yrinea Longoria Garcia. He was a Rancher in La Grulla, Starr County, TX, USA.
In 1891, Juan Longoria paid $500 to Octaviana Villarreal de Peña and her husband, Andres Peña, for her interests in 500 acres in "La Encantada" and "Encino del Pozo". Octaviana Villarreal was the sister of Juan's daughter-in-law, Maria Rita Villarreal.
Parents: Pedro Jose LONGORIA Villarreal and Maria Nicolasa FLORES.

Spouse: Yrinea VILLARREAL Garza. Yrinea VILLARREAL Garza and Juan Santiago LONGORIA Flores1101,1883,2376,2463,2464,2465 were married on 27 November 1833 in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.2466 This marriage date means that they might have had a child, Maria Sostenes, before they married, if Maria Sostenes was indeed born in 1832. However, there is some evidence (the Last Will and Testament of Maria Sostenes) that she was not born until 1834.
Juan Longoria was probably the first Longoria to actually reside in La Grulla. Josefina Vera writes "In the year 1836, Juan Longoria Flores, his wife Yrinea Villarreal, and their small children moved across the Rio Grande to settle in that part of their Porcion 94, and called the settlement "Los Mesquititos"...The portales and jacales were hidden by dense mesquite and retama. Thick log fences were built around the yards. Armed men guarded the place day and night. Through a small peep hole in the fence, they could see anyone approaching."

The timing of Juan's move across the river is very interesting. It was on March 2, 1836, that Texas declared its independence from Mexico. The Alamo fell on March 6, 1836, and Santa Anna was defeated in the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. With Texas now a republic, many "gringos" started forcing Mexican landowners of their lands and confiscating them as their own. To maintain possession of their lands, the Mexican citizens had to live on them and fight to keep them. I believe this is what prompted Juan Longoria to relocate his family from Camargo to the future La Grulla in 1836.

It is also very interesting to note that Juan Longoria lived under "five flags of Texas": the Spanish, Mexican, Republic of Texas, Confederate, and United States flags.

Upon their deaths in 1892, the estate of Juan Longoria and Yrinea Villarreal consisted of the following:
4415 acres in Porciones 93 and 94 (Starr County)
70 acres in Porcion 95 (Starr County)
930 acres in the Rucias concession of Guadalupe Sanches ( Hidalgo County)
1280 acres in Julian (Starr County)
5178 acres in La Encantada (Brooks and Hidalgo Counties)
2214 acres in L. Tomas de la Blanca de Gil Zarate ( Hidalgo County)
Four labores in Porciones 93 and 94
One house of brick, with lot and kitchen
Two lots with jacales
Two "arados americanos"

164 head of horses and mules ("caballos manos, caballos viejos, yeguas, mulas")
3081 head of sheep and goats ("ganado menor")
Cash in the amount of $1209.48
The livestock was valued according to age. The lands were divided equally among the eight surviving heirs.

Leonardo LONGORIA died on 20 May 1836.2476 He was killed by Indians. The death record does not mention his second wife. He may be the Leonardo Longoria de la Garza who received the "El Rincon del Grullo" land grant consisting of 28,642 acres in present day Kleberg County, Texas. The land grant was made by the State of Tamaulipas on April 11, 1848. The Bourland and Miller Report notes that "Juliana Lopez de Longoria applies for herself and the other heirs of her deceased husband Leonardo Longoria de la Garza for 6 leagues of land originally granted by the State of Tamaulipas to the said Garza, decd.; said tract of land is called "El Rincon del Grullo". Parents: Jose Miguel LONGORIA Hinojosa and Encarnacion de la GARZA.

Spouse: Marcela SALINAS Lopez. Marcela SALINAS Lopez and Leonardo LONGORIA were married on 12 May 1827 in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico.517,2478,2479 Ancestry.com shows a marriage date of May 2, 1827 for Leonardo Longoria and Marcela Salinas; the Indice de Casamientos from the Frank Cushman Pierce Collection shows the marriage date as May 12, 1827. However, there is reason to believe both sources are in error. Leonardo Longoria and Juliana Lopez had at least 6 children after April 1827, and Juliana Lopez in the 1850's referred to herself as the widow of Leonardo Longoria de la Garza. The Church would not have sanctioned a second marriage if the first wife were still alive.
