1713 Church Death Record of Nicolasa de la Garza in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the May 19 1713 death record of my 9th great grandmother Nicolasa de la Garza in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This record indicates that she was buried at the Capilla de San Francisco which is also known as the Convent of San Francisco. The document indicates that she was the wife of Joseph de la Garza but I am a descendant of her through her marriage with Jose Martinez Guajardo. If you are also a descendant of her please let me know in the comments section of this post. Through other sources we know that her parents were Pedro de la Garza and Maria Lucia de la Rocha.
