Household of Anastacio and Librada Canales
Anastacio Canales also spelled Anistacio, Anaslino, Anestacio,
Born about 1849 Mier. immig in 1877 in Texas. He married Maria Librada
Gutierrez in Duval county Dec.15, 1877. He Died in Duval county. Age 72 in 1920 duval
census (last known census of him). Anastacio was a farmer. Hired son Placido to work in
1914 manafest. Anastacio possible death is 1924.Was a residence Realitos Tx. Found in 1880
Texas census spelled Carnales. Anastacio is not buried in Libradas cemetery or at
least there is no stone, Vandals have ruined alot of the Ranchero graves. Other local
Realitos cemeteries have been searched by foot. No luck. Possible cemetery for Anastacio
according to living relatives is Clovis Cemetery. To call it a cemetery is being kind. It
was a ghost town then and that is being kind. At that time all that was left were a
few stone walls and the remnants of some headstones. It was trashed and van-dalized. It
sits in the middle of an old pasture (more like South Texas brush) and you have to go
through a fence to get to it. There is no gate, it is a few hundred meters from the
fence. Only some old timer would know where it is at. Anastacio and Librada are found in an index card from the
records of a San Agustin Parish, Laredo Texas. Card reads: Anastasio Canales and Librada
Gutierrez, Eugenio 1893 Blp50n30Hebron, Placido 1894 Blp56n111Hebron, and Eloisa 1898

Determining who were the parents
of Juan GUTIERREZ, husband of Ma. Antonia CHAPA, is problematic.
The baptismal records of several of Juan and
Antonia's children give conflicting information as to Juan's parents.
Ma.Antonia's parents (the maternal grandparents) are
consistently given as: Cayetano CHAPA and Rumalda CANALES.
Juan's parents are listed as follows on the baptismal records of his
1. Baptismal record for Juan and Antonia's
daughter Francisca (bapt. 1856) gives Juan's parents as Ygnacio GUTIERREZ and Juana
2. Baptismal record for Juan and Antonia's daughter
Librada (bapt. 1858) gives Juan's parents as Encarnacion GUTIERREZ and Gertrudis GARCIA.
3. Baptismal record for Juan and Antonia's daughter Ma. del Refugio (bapt.
1860) give Juan's parents as Jose Encarnacion GUTIERREZ and Gertrudis GARCIA.
4. Baptismal record for Juan and Antonia's daugher Ma.
Manuela GUTIERREZ (bapt. 1864) give Juan's parents as Jose Juan GUTIEEREZ and Antonia
source proof, I don't think you can definitively say who were the parents of Juan
GUTIERREZ (husband of Antonia CHAPA
The name "Chapa" originated here in the America's
it derives from the Italian name of "schiapapria" brought here by Juan Bautista
Schiapapria born 1630 Arbisola, Italy. He changed the name to "Chapa" when he
came to Mexico. He studied in Mexico City around 1650 and migrated to Cadereyta, Mexico,
and served as personal assistant to General Alonzo de Leon. He married Beatriz Olivares
Treviño, the Gr. granddaughter of Diego Treviño. The parents of Juan Bautista
Schiapapria were Bartolome Schiapapria and Batestina Badi. Juan is known as a writer of
early histories of Nuevo Leon he held various titles and accompanied de Leon on many
anyone today with the name Chapa, can trace his biginnings here in the America's to
"Juan Bautista Schiapapria (Chapa)". We Chapa's are all related, so to all you
Chapa's I say "HI COUSIN"!
