Nicolas de Ayala, 1741 Church Death Record, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon Mexico

The following is the 1741 church death record for my wife’s 7th great grandfather Nicolas de Ayala. The following document also indicates that his wife was Antonia de la Garza. The document also indicates that he left a will which I have yet to find. Also he names his sons Joseph Baptista and Caietano de Ayala as his executors.

Anna Maria Anzaldua Saucedo, 1790 Death, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1790 death record of my 8th great grandmother Anna Maria Anzaldua Saucedo. This document indicates her last name as being Saldua but from the marriage record of her daughter Juana Gertrudis Ramos we know it to be Anzaldua. This document also indicates that she died from “tisico” meaning that she died of tuberculosis. Her parents are listed as Sebastian Anzaldua and Mariana Saucedo, also that she was married to Juan Antonio Ramos. She was originally from Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and died at age 78. She did not make a will since she was “pobre” poor.
