This is the September 7, 1734 death record of my 7th great grandfather Diego de Hinojosa. I found this death record at familysearch under Linares, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. It mentions that he was killed by indians at “La Ventana de conde, zierra de Tamaulipa”. He was married to Maria Ana Josefa de la Garza and his parents were Diego de Hinojosa and Josepha de la Garza. Where you find [?] it means I could not make out the word. If you know it let me know in the comments section of this blog post.

  1. Hola Moises.

    Yo tengo al Capitán José Diego Hinojosa Cantú (b. 25 nov 1670 Salinas Victoria, N.L., d. 7 sep 1734 Camargo, Tamp.), casado (m. 29 apr 1694 Salinas Victoria) con María Josefa de la Garza Diaz Molina. Es hijo de Diego de Hinojosa Montaño (b. abt 1640, d. 14 dec 1673 San Antonio de los Llanos) casado (m. abt 1673) con María Josefa Cantú Treviño (b. 8 oct 1642 Monterrey, d. abt 1705 Ciénaga de Flores, N.L.)

    Yo desciendo de su hijo José Manuel Hinojosa (b. ab7 1695 Cerralvo, d. 15 feb 1778 Mier, Tamp.) casado (m. abt 1720 Cerralvo, N.L.) María Inez Chapa.

    ¿Tú de que hijo del Capitán Diego desciendes?

    En el texto del acta tu escribes:

    “Cavo del Presbitero de Zeralvo” y creo debe decir “Cavo del presidio de Zerralvo”

    En cuanto a donde lo mataron, tampoco le entiendo. Dice algo como Voca de “Sorama”. (Pudiera ser Voca de Leones?, pero no creo)



    1. De su hijo Jose Gervacio de Hinojosa quien se caso con Maria Teresa Trevino. El capitan que mencionas es el abuelo.

      Lla lo compuse para que diga “Presidio”. Gracias.

      1. Moises, yo tambien desciendo de Maria Teresa y Jose Gervacio, de casualidad tienes algún documento que tenga la relación entre Ana Josepha Garza y Jose Gervacio Hinojosa?

  2. Increible. Mis decendientes tambien vienen de el mismo mentado. Capitan Jose Diego Hinojosa Cantu casado en 1663 con Maria Cantu Trevino… Mundo pequeno..

  3. Hola Moises! Thank you for sharing your research. My 8th great grandfather Jose Jacinto Pena was one of the five men that died on that same day, he is the last one listed on the page. The entries for all the men that day say the same thing “en la Voca de …..” To me, it looks like borima or forima?
