1793 Death Record of Jose Balentin de Olivares in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

This is the December 1, 1793 death record of my wife's 7th great grandfather Jose Balentin de Olviares in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

This record indicates that he died at age 89 and that he leaves his wife Maria de Jesus Guajardo.

Through other records I have found out that the parents of Jose Balentin are Juan de Olivares and Maria Rita Vela.

    Hey Moises! I was wondering if it would be possible for this record to be translated into english? If it’s not too much trouble, that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
