1737 Baptism of Jose Gregorio Perez Cantu

Here is the April 14, 1737 Baptism of Jose Gregorio Perez Cantu who was baptized in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He is my 5th great grandfather.

This record indicates that he is a coyote meaning that his parents are an indian and a mestizo. That may be the reason that I have not been able to find more on his parents Juan Perez and Francisca Javiera Cantu.

Jose Gregorio Perez Cantu grows up to marry Maria Theodora Marroquin. I am a descendant of theirs through their son Jose Anselmo Perez.

Below is the transcription of his baptism in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
