  1. Moises,
    I descend from his sister María Lucía or María Luisa de Treviño who m. Mateo Garcia de la Garza–son of the
    ex-comulgo Juan Lorenzo García. Garmendia Leal shows her being dau. of Catarina de los Santos and not as I
    had thought dau. of Lucia de Benavides. Can you clarify this for me.

  2. Muy Respetuosamente, pero considero que la Viuda de Francisco Baez Treviño era Chatarina Mayer no Amaya ni Maya, según yo alcanzo a dar lectura en el acta de referencia anteriormente mostrada…
    Y al final debe decir; los cuales mandaron se le hicieran 3 pesos, para que conste lo firme. D. B Molano.
    Atentamente. Francisco Melo S

  3. Hi Moises! Thank you for sharing. I have added this document to my tree. I very appreciate the translations you provide since I don’t speak Spanish. The information regarding the will was quite interesting. Francisco BAEZ DE TREVINO y BENAVIDES & Catarina DE TREVINO y DE AMAYA are my husband’s 7th great-grandparents. He descends through their daughter Maria Gertrudis.
