Maria VELA2811,3831 was born about 1739. She is not listed with the Salvador Vela family in the 1757 Census of Camargo, so presumably she had already married and was living elsewhere at the time. The Census does show a Maria Vela, who was a widow. Roy McCandless has nine children for Salvador Vela and Agueda Longoria; the 1750 Census listed only eight. Since I added Mariana from his website, it may be that the Maria listed in the census is really Mariana. Roy has a ninth child named Dorotea. Parents: Salvador VELA and Maria Agueda LONGORIA Chapa.

Mariana VELA1781,2253 died before 14 December 1806.1782 Seabury indicates that Mariana was the daughter of Salvador Vela when he notes her marriage to Lucas Eduardo Villarreal. However, Mariana did not show up in the Camargo Census of 1750 or the Camargo Census of 1757.
