Maria Higenia Perea, was married to Nicholas Romero. 

She was born as Maria Ana De Perea in Nacosari, year 1713. Nacosari is in the vicinity of the small villages at the time near and south of the Romero Family ranch.

I have made the decision, based on continuing records that her parents were; Juan Ignacio De Perea and Maria Ladron De Guevara(Gebara), year 1712. They also lived in Janos and San Ignacio.

Based on an excellent book that I read, JUAN BAUTISTA DE ANZA (Donald T. Garate), Janos was a very important city that was the center of "activity". Order it, it is excellent. The Perea family still has to be confirmed. They were either from the Andalusia (read that Pedro De Perea mentioned that he was born in that area of Spain, thereby naming the area, when as Governor, Nuevo Andalusia)) or the Durango, Vizcaya Branches of Spain, as mentioned in another "book". But, the family name of Perea, is definitely BASQUE.

She may have had sisters by the name of Bartola Ladra De Guevara and Juana Nicolasa de Guebara(Guevara).

There is also a "connection" to Chihuahua, whereas there was a birth of YGNACIO EUSTACHIO PEREA, San Jose, Hidalgo Del Parral,, and the mother was ANA MARIA DE PEREA, year 1710. Chihuahua was a stepping stone on traveling west for the silver and gold strikes in the Santa Ana/Magdalena area. He may have been the brother of Maria. The father may have been, Juan Ignacio De Perea.

The father of Juan Ignacio De Perea may have been, with the home address being the same, Pedro Perea Ybarra, with his father being Pedro Perea(died, October 1645) and mother, Maria Ibarra.

If so, there is a great story in the book of this "PEREA" family, and the "IBARRA" family. Pedro De Perea was the first "governor" of SONORA, naming it Nuevo Andalusia first. But, after he died, the name was disbanded, and the name became Sonora. On page 270 of the book, there is information that I am presently having the author help in clarifying, as it has contradictory information.

But it is Maria Ibarra that is very famous in the history of "Mexico". Her grandfather was Francisco Ibarra that created the present states of Durango(Nueva Vizcaya) and Sinaloa. Their family, as well as the Perea family came from the Basque area Durango, Bizkaia and the Ibarra's came from Eibar, Gipuzkoa. very impressive record of Francisco Ibarra.

For an excellent overview of the negative and positive formation of "Sonora" by Pedro De Perea, please access the book,
