This is the August 12, 1704 death record of Manuel Perez de Oropeza, my 8th great-grandfather, who died in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
As the record indicates, Manuel was married to Maria de Trevino. She was the daughter of Alonso de Treviño and Maria Mayor de Renteria.
I have yet to find out whom his parents were.
I am a descendant of his through his daughter Maria Oropeza who married Joseph Villarreal the son of Bernabe Villarreal and Isabel de la Garza.
Below is the transcript of the above marriage record. I wonder what he died form since it says that he died suddenly.

Xavier a Manuel de oropesa Con vigilia y misa de cuerpo preste, marido
que fue de Maria treviño no resivio los sacramtos, por aver muerto
