1780 Church Death Record of Blas Canales Benavides in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the 1780 death record of my eighth great grandfather Blas Canales Benavides. He died in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico back in December 7th 1780. This record indicates that he was married to Rosa Anzaldua. Unfortuatly it does not mention the names of his parents. He was the son of Blas Canales and Maria Benavides for whom I have to find more information about. It is interesting to note that this document indicates that he did not leave a will since he ahd nothing to bequeath and also that he lived in Gualeguas which is present time Agualeguas.
