His name can be found spelled Macias in the 1779 ship list.1  His son's name is spelled Masias in the 1784 survey and in the marriage record of his song Francisco in 1797.2,3  

  • Given the large Mexias family in Telde, it's quite possible his name is originally spelled Mexias in the Canarian baptism records.

  2. Francisco (b. 1765)
  3. Jose (b. 1769)

  • NOTE: Many Galveztown residents had their sacraments at the church in St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish due to a variety of reasons, mainly because of the Galveztown church's disrepair due to flooding and hurricanes. 

  • Son Juan Francisco married Maria Isabel Hernandez on May 1, 1797 in Galveztown.  His brother Miguel and Jose were witnesses.3  However, he's listed as Juan Francisco Masias in the St. Gabriel church records in Iberville and married May 22, 1797.6  His children stay in St. Gabriel. 

    Daughter Francisca must have been married before 1786 because she buried her son Bartholome Sanchez that year, son of Juan Sanchez and Francisca Masias.8  They also had a daughter, Maria Del Pino Sanchez, who married Josef Ramirez, with a marriage investigation on April 13, 1787.   Francisca is listed as native of Valsequillo, which is near Telde, Gran Canaria.9  Francisca remarried Francisco Morales on July 30, 1797 in Galveztown. Her brother Miguel was a witness. Diocese church records in St. Gabriel list the date Jul 12, 1797.4,6  Her children stayed in St. Gabriel.

    • It's quite possible that Maria Juana de Los Dolores, daughter of Juan Antonio Sanchez and Malgarita(?) Macias, baptized Aug 7,1783, could actually be the daughter of Francisca.10

    By 1799, Francisco's wife Maria Isabel had passed away.  Francisco married Angela Hernandez Sanchez on Jan 2(?), 1799 in Galveztown5 and it was recorded in the church records on Feb 4, 1799.  His brother Miguel was a witness.6
