This is the August 26, 1756 death record of my 8th great grandmother Maria Josepha Leal, She died in what is now days Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document indicates that she was the widow of Captain Joseph Treviño.

Through other sources we know that her parents were Antonio Leal de Leon and Juana Josefa Gonzalez Hidalgo. The parents of her husband Joseph de Treviño are Juan de Treviño and Ana de Maya.
