Joseph Isidro de Alyala, 1752 Baptism in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
The following is the marriage of my wife’s 3rd great grandparents Jose Tomas Perez and Maria Francisca De Allala they got married back in 1837 in Valle De La Mota, present day General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The following document is very interesting since it mentions that Tomas was from the city of Monterrey and that he was the Widow of Juliana Maldonado and it also states that Maria Francisca was also the widow of Nicolas Cantu. If anyone has more information on them please let me know. Also I did my best transcribing the document since as you can tell it is kind of hard to see the letters. You can see the image used for transcription here See Original.
