1742 Baptism of Maria Theodora Marroquin Hinojosa
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the February 21, 1742 Baptism of Maria Theodora Marroquin Hinojosa who was baptized in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She is my 5th great grandmother.

It is stated in this record that her parents are Antonio Marroquin and Juana Ines de Hinojosa. It is also interesting to note that the baptism just below hers is that of Juana Maria Marroquin Hinojosa whom is the twin of Maria Theodora.

The record indicates that they were neighbors of Monterrey in what was called el Valle del Guaxuco now days Santiago, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

She grows up to marry Jose Gregorio Perez the son of Juan Perez and Francisca Javiera Cantu.

Below is the transcription of the baptism record.
