Felix Edmundo Corona Toledano was a member of the Corona lineage which originated in Santander, Spain. When Montezuma’s Empire fell (1521) and New Spain came to exist, poor hidalgo Spanish settlers bearing this surname (Corona, de la Corona) came to establish themselves on the region of Puebla de los Angeles and Tlaxcala. They were granted lands as “vecinos” and “pobladores” (first settlers at their own expense) which kept for them their original status of “hidalgos” (gentry).

Maria Antonia de la Fuente was ninth direct descendant of Captain Domingo de la Fuente and his wife Francisca Martínez-Guajardo. Domingo was a settler in la villa de Santiago del Saltillo (New Spain) in 1609 and a member of the landed lesser nobility. He was a Spanish benemerito, conqueror, encomendero, miner and trader. During his lifetime, he held these positions: Council Scribe (1610), member of the Council as Alguacil Mayor (1616, 1618), General Attorney of the County (Procurator, 1619, 1631), etc. By the marriage of Luis de la Fuente Cabello (Domingo´s great-great- grandson) with Josefa Gonzalez-de-Paredes y de la Garza-Falcón, Maria Antonia was tenth direct descendant of Captain Alberto do Canto, the Portuguese founder of the villa de Santiago del Saltillo in 1575 and his wife, Estefania de Montemayor y Porcayo, an eleventh direct descendant of captain Diego de Montemayor, founder of Monterrey (Mexico) and his wife, Juana Porcayo-de-la-Cerda.

Grandparents (maternal)

Antonio Paez Sanchez (born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, on June 13, 1867) and Maria Altagracia Martinez Castro (born in Alaquines, S.L.P., Mexico on January 6, 1894). Married in San Luis Potosi on May 28th 1914.

Antonio Paez was the son of Rafel Paez y Saavedra, who was born in Chalatenango (Guatemala) in 1830, and Maria Felipa Sanchez Gutierrez, born in San Juan de los Lagos (Mexico) on may 27, 1836. They got married in San Luis Potosi, on January 7th 1863. Rafael´s parents were general Geronimo Paez y Saavedra (member of the old Spaniard Paez-de-Monteseros lesser nobility and landed family) and Tiburcia Saavedra, who married in what is now the city of San Salvador, El Salvador (then Guatemala) on 1824. General Geronimo Paez y Saavedra was a national hero, Lieutenant of the “Freedom” Dragon Corps, Brigade General, Mayor of San Salvador, Deputy, President of El Salvador Legislative Assembly (1831).
