Convento de San Francisco 1590 to 1914, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

The Convent of San Francisco is were most of the founders and settlers of Monterrey were buried.  It dated back till the 1590’s but unfortunately it was demolished in 1914. As you may have noticed, most death records of my ancestors name this Church as the place of burial. If anyone can point the location where the church used to be please send me the GPS location so that I may check it out on Google Maps.
