This is 12-29-1716 baptism of my 6th great grandmother Maria Josepha de Alanis in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document indicates that her parents are Lorenzo de Alanis and Faviana Rodriguez. Her godparents were Antonio de Olivares and Ana Rodriguez.

Maria grows up to marry Nicolas Marroquin in October 17, 1734 the son of Nicolas Marroquin and Francisca Montemayor Rodriguez.
