Spouse: Maria Josefa VILLARREAL. Maria Josefa VILLARREAL and Pedro LONGORIA Chapa were married in 1755.448 Pedro is not listed by name in the Camargo Census of July 12, 1757; therefore I suspect he was married sometime after July 1757.

Pedro Cosme de LONGORIA2623 was born in Sobrerriba, Concejo de Salas, Asturias, Spain.2260 Born in Sobrerriba and having the same name as his father, Pedro Cosme eventually moved to the Lugar de Longoria where he married Maria Suarez de Longoria. Thus, this Pedro Cosme was our first ancestor to actually start using "Longoria" as a surname. According to witnesses in the limpieza de sangre of the Oidor Pedro Suarez de Longoria, Pedro Cosme de Longoria and his wife Maria Suarez lived in the "Lugar de Longoria, parish of San Martino, Concejo de Miranda, Asturias" until their deaths, which occurred sometime in the period 1541-1556.

He was also known as Pedro de Cosme de LONGORIA, Pedro Cosmeo de LONGORIA, and Pedro Cosmea de LONGORIA.

Pedro de LONGORIA2624,2625,2626 died before 1586. He was born in Longoria, Concejo de Miranda, Asturias, Spain.2627 Pedro de Longoria's name was obtained from the "expediente", or proceeding, to approve the passage of Lorenzo Suarez de Longoria to the New World; the "expediente" noted the names of Lorenzo's paternal grandparents and his maternal grandparents.

Also, in November 1593, during his testimony in a criminal lawsuit, Alonso de la Pontiga testified that he was a son of Pedro de Longoria.

Furthermore, the limpieza de sangre of the Oidor Pedro Suarez de Longoria identified him as the Oidor's father.

Parents: Pedro Cosme de LONGORIA and Maria SUAREZ de Longoria.

Spouse: Catalina SUAREZ de Camuño y Llamas. Catalina SUAREZ de Camuño y Llamas and Pedro de LONGORIA were married.2628 One witness in the limpieza de sangre of Pedro Suarez de Longoria declared that Pedro's parents were married about 1565. A statement was also made that they [Pedro de Longoria and Catalina Suarez] lived as a married couple for forty years, but that would mean that Pedro de Longoria lived until 1605 and that is impossible since Pedro de Longoria was already deceased by 1593 when the criminal trial involving Diego Suarez and Francisca Menendez and the other heirs of Pedro de Longoria took place. I believe Pedro de Longoria and Catalina Suarez were actually married sometime before 1559, the approximate year that Alonso de la Pontiga was born. After Catalina died, Pedro de Longoria married for the second time to Francisca Menendez. It is more likely that Catalina Suarez and Pedro de Longoria were married for a period closer to 30 years than 40 years. Children were: Alonso de la PONTIGA, Maria de LONGORIA, Lorenzo de LONGORIA, Catalina SUAREZ de Lama, Friar Fernando de MIRANDA, Pedro SUAREZ DE LONGORIA.

Ponciano LONGORIA was born (date unknown). Parents: Ponciano Noel LONGORIA Jr. and Eugenia ______.


Ponciano LONGORIA Villarreal1934,1938,2447,2633 was born about July 1852 in La Grulla, Starr County, TX, USA.295 The 1860 Census shows his age as 8, indicating he was born after August 1851 and before August 1852. The 1880 Census gives his age as 27, indicating he was born after June 7, 1852 and before June 7, 1853. His grave marker shows his birth year as 1855. His death certificate indicated he was 61 years old, indicating he was born after June 25, 1852 and before June 25, 1853. A baptismal index for shows he was baptized in 1853. All things considered, I have concluded his grave marker is incorrect and that he was born between June 25, 1852 and August 1852. He died on 25 June 1914 at the age of 61 in Santa Rita Ranch, Brooks County, TX, USA. He was buried in Santa Rita cemetery, Brooks County, TX, USA. Ponciano was a Rancher in Santa Rita Ranch, Brooks County, TX, USA.
Ponciano Longoria was born about 1852 and thus was probably the first "American" born ancestor from the Longoria branch. He was also a true land baron, purchasing many tracts of land starting in 1884. He established his first ranch at "La Blanca". Ponciano purchased many of his relatives' interests in the "Encantada" and "Encino del Poso" grants and combined them with his wife's and his own inheritance to form the Santa Rita ranch in Brooks County. He was a rancher in both La Grulla and in La Encantada.

My father, Raul Longoria, recalls hearing stories about Ponciano's stubbornness. He recalled one story about a time when Ponciano was standing in a pasture talking to two other men. One of the men, Celso Villarreal, noticed that Ponciano was standing on a hill of fire ants and told Ponciano that he should move to avoid being bit. Ponciano, in his stubbornness, responded that the fire ants could not harm him and he continued standing on the ant hill while resuming the conversation. Though the ants bit, he refused to acknowledge that they were there or that they even bothered him.

Ponciano suffered an apparent heart attack while holding his two-year old grandson, Raul Longoria, in his lap. He died soon thereafter.
Parents: Juan Santiago LONGORIA Flores and Yrinea VILLARREAL Garza.

Spouse: Nicolasa LONGORIA.
Oral history also says that Ponciano was the father of an illegitimate child named Leandro Longoria. The mother of the child was Nicolasa Longoria, who apparently lived next to or near the house of Ponciano's father, and was a first cousin of Ponciano. This oral history has been confirmed by Leandro's death certificate which shows Ponciano and Nicolasa as his parents.Children were: Leandro LONGORIA.

Spouse: Maria Rita VILLARREAL Ramirez. Maria Rita VILLARREAL Ramirez and Ponciano LONGORIA Villarreal were married on 16 February 1876 in Starr County, Texas.
On February 8, 1897, the estate of Juan Longoria and his wife, Yrinea Villarreal, was partitioned among their 7 surviving children. Ponciano's inheritance consisted of the following:
142 head of cattle
28 horses
1 mule
One labor
551.875 acres in Porciones 93 and 94
8.75 acres in Porcion 95 (the Ramon Quintanilla grant)
116.25 acres in the Rucias concession of Guadalupe Sanches
160 acres in the Julian lands
647.25 acres in La Encantada
276.75 acres in the La Blanca lands
and $149.81 in cash

Among Ponciano's land purchases were the following:
1884 - paid 16 silver pesos ("moneda de aguila") to Bonifacio Solis for his property
in Porcion 10, known as "Tepeguaje", located in Mexico
1885 - paid 50 pesos to Pablos Diaz and 1 peso to Manuel Villarreal, for their
properties in Porcion 8, known as "San Roque de la Cruz", in Mexico
1894 - paid $28.50 in Mexican coin to his cousin Viviana Longoria de Solis for all of her
interests in Porcion 94, which she inherited from her father Eugenio Longoria.
1897 - paid $562.50 in Mexican coin to Jose Maria Longoria, Maria Sostenes Longoria,
Guadalupe Longoria, Roman Ramirez, Barbara Longoria, and Leonor Longoria
for their interests to 562.5 acres in "Encino del Pozo" and "La Encantada".
With this purchase, Ponciano bought out the interests of six of his brothers and
sisters to the lands they had inherited from their parents, Juan Longoria and Yrinea
Villarreal de Longoria.
1898 - paid $600 in U.S.A. currency to Transito Villarreal for his interests to 600 acres
in "Encino del Pozo". This was part of Transito's inheritance from his parents,
Gregorio Villarreal an Ysidora Ramirez de Villarreal.
1898 - paid $93.75 in U.S.A. currency to Yrinea Longoria and her husband, Dionicio
Garcia, for her interests in 93.75 acres in "La Encantada" and "Encino del Pozo".
This was Yrinea Longoria de Garcia's share of the 500 acres purchased by her
deceased father, Juan Longoria, and her share of the 250 acres purchased by her
deceased mother, Yrinea Villarreal de Longoria.
1907 - paid $120 to Macario Villarreal and Jesus Maria Villarreal for their interests in
80 acres in Porcion 95. Macario and Jesus Maria were brothers of Concepcion
Villarreal, the son-in-law of Ponciano Longoria.
1907 - paid $666.75 to Juan Garza Diaz for his interests in 190.5 acres in Porcion 95,
paid $61.25 to Nicanora Garcia de Salazar for her interests in 17.5 acres in
Porcion 95, and paid $49.00 to Santos Salazar de Valle, Ygnacia Salazar de
Moreno, Juan Salazar and Patrocina Salazar for their interests in 14 acres in
Porcion 95.
