Andrés de Salinas

Brief Biography: 
Andrés de Salinas, a native of Salinas de Rosío (Burgos province), was the son of Alonso Sanz de Salinas and María Alonso de Abarrça/Abariça. Andrés stated in 1547 that he and his son went on the Expedition. It is odd that his son is listed on the 1540 muster, but he is not. Perhaps an error or omission on the part of the scribe. Given the fact that he stated having taken horses, he is listed as a horseman. Also, it is quite possible that the few documentary records pertaining to an Andrés de Salinas, are in fact attributable to the expeditionary.
