1711 Baptism of Josefa Antonia Cantu in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the baptism of my wife’s 6th great grandmother Josefa Antonia Cantu in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She is the daughter of Joseph Cantu and Gertrudis de la Garza. She goes on to marry Joseph Manuel de Ayala on 5-2-1732 also in Monterrey Nuevo Leon. My wife is a descendant of her through her son Joseph Isidro de Ayala. She married Joseph Manuel de Ayala in Monterrey back in 5-2-1732. If you are a descendant of her please let me know so that I can add you to my database.
