1773 Death Record of Isabel Maria de Benavides
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the June 26, 1773 death record of Isabel Maria de Benavides, my 7th great grandmother,  who died in Revilla (ciudad Guerrero), Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

Isabel Maria was married to Cristoval Gutierrez de Lara the son of Nicolas Gutierrez de Lara and Clara de Trevino Renteria. Her parents were Bernardo Benavides and Francisca de los Reyes.

This death record indicates that she did not make a will due to being poor.

Below is the transcription of her death record.
