1733 Baptism of Jose Juan Francisco Cuellar in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the November 1, 1733 baptism of Jose Juan Francisco Cuellar in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Juan Francisco is my 7th great grandfather.

This record indicates that at the time of the baptism Jose was thirty-six days old and by doing the simple math we can conclude that he was born in September 26, 1733. His parents are listed as Bartholome Lizarraras y Cuellar and Gregoria Martinez.

His godparents are Pedro Martinez and Maria Ines Martinez. 

Jose Francisco grows up to marry Ana Maria Gutierrez de Castro the daughter of Juan Joseph de Castro and Maria Olaya Gutierrez de Lara.
