1730 Baptism Record of Maria Josefa Margarita Loreto Davila

This is the March 8, 1730 baptism record of Maria Josefa Margarita Loreto Davila, my 6th great-grandmother, who was baptized in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. 

Maria Josefa is the daughter of Joseph Davila and Ana Maria Flores Abrego. She grows up to marry Miguel Rodriguez the son of Nicolas Rodriguez and Antonia Farias.

Her baptism record mentions her parents and it also states that she was nine days old when baptized so we can assume that she was born on 27 Feb 1730.

Below is the transcription of the above record.
