Personal Information    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name ORTEGA, Jose de la Luz de Jesus "Gregorio"  [1
    • NAME CONTROVERSY: Many of Gregorio's descendents believe Jose de la Luz ORTEGA and Gregorio ORTEGA are the same person;
      - 1850 & 1860 censuses: Jose de la Luz ORTEGA living with mother and siblings (not using nickname of Gregorio as yet)
      - 1870-Death: Jose de la Luz ORTEGA assumed his nickname, Gregorio ORTEGA

      Others are not so convinced that Jose de la Luz and Gregorio are the same person, having no written verification of Gregorio's parentage.

      NAME VARIATIONS:
      - Jose G. ORTEGA; 1870 Census
      - Gregorio ORTEGA; 1870 Census (LISTED TWICE ?)
      - George ORTEGA; 1900 Census
    Nickname Gregorio 
    Born 23 Jan 1840  Santa Barbara, Alta California Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • BIRTHPLACE CONTROVERSY:
      - Jose de la Luz ORTEGA listed birth place as California (when living with his mother and siblings)
      - Gregorio ORTEGA's records listed birth place as Mexico (when living with his wife and children)
      Many of Gregorio's descendents believe Gregorio considered himself to be a Mexican citizen because at the time of his birth, Alta California was under Mexican rule;

      ALTA CALIFORNIA OWNERSHIP:
      - 1824-1848: Mexico claims ownership of the Alta California Territory.
      - 1840 Santa Barbara, Alta California: birth of Jose de la Luz ORTEGA
      - 1848: Ownership of the Alta California Territory transferred from Mexico to the United States & renamed California, as a result of The Mexican-American war 1846-1848.

      CERTIFICATE OF CITIZENSHIP - Ventura County Superior Court:
      - Jul 23, 1877: Gregorio renounced his Mexican citizenship and was granted a [U.S.] Certificate of Citizenship
      -- Book: 2
      -- Certificate Number: 31(M)
      -- Page: 338

      ANALYSIS GREGORIO'S CITIZENSHIP CERTIFICATE:
      Book 2 had three categories for Citizenship Certificates*:
      I Alien - pages 1-64
      II Minor - pages 30-345 [indicated with (M)]
      III Soldiers - pages 397-398

      Gregorio was listed under the "MINOR" category*.
      (Most likely because he was NOT an ALIEN or a SOLDIER, and he fell into no other category, i.e. he was a 37-year-old adult, NOT born out of country but born in the Mexico-owned Alta California Territory, whose ownership was later transferred to the United States & renamed California.)

      (*See Gregorio's Naturalization/Citizenship Certificate Record)
      Per the Ventura County Web Site:
      Since children under 16 acquire citizenship through the naturalization of their parents, those listed under the "MINOR" category are probably young men between the ages of 16 and 21 [born in Mexican Alta California?-JSR.]

      It would seem the CITIZEN CERTIFICATE would validate the claim that Gregorio was born in Alta California.
      However, there are many important discrepancies which could dispute this fact.
      ----------------------------------------------------

      FURTHER DISCUSSION ... INFORMATION DISCREPANCIES:
      1) Birth Place California vs Mexico;
               I) Jose de la Luz (Gregorio) Ortega lists birth place as California per;
                    A. All Censuses where he used the name Jose de la Luz Ortega.
               II) Gregorio Ortega lists birth place as Mexico per all documents below where he used the name Gregorio Ortega;
                    A. All Censuses
                    B. Citizenship Certificate
                    C. Voter Registration Lists
                    D. Death Certificate
                    E. Coroner's Inquest

      2) Natural Born vs Immigration:
               A. Jose de la Luz states he was born in California
               B. Gregorio states he immigrated to the U.S. in 1875 (1900 census); in 1860 (1910 census)

      3) Voter Registration Eligibility Authorization - Treaty of Hidalgo vs Citizenship Certificate:
               A. Jose de la Luz (Gregorio) Ortega's siblings' Voter Registrations list their birthplaces as California; w/eligibility to vote "by virtue of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo." (The treaty signed at the end of the Mexican-American War which, among other things, gave adult male residents born or residing in Alta California voting privileges in the United States.)
               B. Gregorio lists his eligibility to vote per his 23 Jul 1877 Citizenship Certificate.

      4) 1870 Census - Two Separate Individuals vs One Who is Listed Twice (in different towns):
           A. Township 2 [Santa Barbara], Santa Barbara, California - Jose G. Ortega, Age: 30, Birthplace: Cal, living alone [same town his mother, siblings, half-siblings & stepfather were living]
           B. Township 1 [San Buenaventura], Santa Barbara, California - Gregorio Ortega, Age: 25, Birthplace: Mexico; w/wife Regina [Esquivel] Ortega & son, Salomon Ortega [same town Regina's parents & siblings were living] Note: Regina listed twice, also as living in parent's household
      ----------------------------------------------------

      ***** As of July 2016, it cannot be definitively determined whether or not Jose de la Luz Ortega is the same person as Gregorio Ortega, husband of Regina Esquivel. *****

      NAME CHANGES - as noted on Chaffee Family Tree
      NICKNAME "GREGORIO" ORIGINATION: Jose Gregorio de la Luz de Jesus Ortega

      [NOTE: Per information from Deborah McKinnon, family descendant, Jose was known as "Gregorio" Ortega
      - He was nicknamed after his father's friend and in-law Gregorio Lopez.
      - He also had an uncle by his grandmother Maria Estefan Olivera and Jose Vicente Ortega who was named Gregorio but died in infancy.

      - He had a daughter by the name of Micaela who was named after the Godmother of his brother Jose Maria.
      - Micaela Cota was also a family member and name Micaela became a Ortega family name then as well.

      -Gregorio Ortega was married to Maria Antonia Regina Esquivel, whose mother Maria Antonia Blasa Olivas was granddaughter of four of the original "Soldados de Cueras" who were the founders of Santa Barbara, California.

      Gregorio had 18 children and died of a stroke on 22 February 1916 in El Rio, California]

      *NOTE-by JSR:
      Gregorio ORTEGA named his first child, Salomon/Solomon ORTEGA --- POSSIBLY NAMED AFTER Jose de la Luz ORTEGA's brother, Salomon/Salomon ORTEGA born abt. 1847.
      ANALYSIS: Salomon/Solomon is not a common Spanish name, and this MAY POSSIBLY provide further evidence that Jose de la Luz ORTEGA was the same person as Gregorio ORTEGA

      BIOGRAPHY - Gregorio Ortega: A Citizen of El Rio
      It is believed that Gregorio came from Mexico to El Rio in the 1860s around the time of the American Civil War. His state of birth is not known, but his death certificate in 1916 indicated that he was from Southern Mexico. What is clear is that on January 3, 1870, Father Juan Comapla joined Gregorio Ortega in marriage with Regina Esquivel, a local girl with strong roots in the area. ...
