1707 Death Record of Maria de Salazar
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the May 29, 1707 death record of Maria de Salazar, my 9th great-grandmother, who died in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

She was married twice, first to Alonso Ruiz de Ocon and then to Nicolas de Trevino. I am a descendant of hers through her marriage with Alonso.

Below is the transcription of his death record.
