This book contains seven generations of the descendants of Lucas Caballero de los Olivos and Margarita Rodriguez de Montemayor. Lucas was born about 1640 in Puebla de los Angeles, Nueva Espana and entered Nuevo Leon prior to 1670. He is considered to be the progenitor of the Caballero surname in Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Texas. This book contains information from the 1640s through the early late 1800s.

Lucas was first married to Juana de Barraza the daughter of Juan de Barraza and Margarita de al Peña Arce. Juana made a will dated 16 Apr 1669 in Parras, Coahuila.

Lucas then married Margarita Rodriguez de Montemayor on 30 Sep 1670 in Monterrey in the nowadays state of Nuevo Leon. She was the daughter of Diego Rodriguez de Montemayor and Ines de la Garza.

I have included information on the daughters of Juana, the first wife, and also information on Maria, a natural daughter of Lucas.

The main focus and the bulk of this work are the descendants of Lucas and Margarita.

Lucas died 02 Jul 1690 in Monterrey and is buried in the Parochial church of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

This work is an attempt to document his descendants and is by far a complete work. I hope that as I continue to gather and correct information I get the chance to publish a second edition sometime in the future that contains more descendants. Research is a never ending endeavor.
