1747 Baptism Record of Maria Antonia Gertrudis Rodriguez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the January 18, 1747 baptism record of Maria Antonia Gertrudis Rodriguez, my 5th great-grandmother, who was baptized in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. 

Maria Antonia's parents are Miguel Rodriguez and Maria Josefa Margarita Loreto Davila. She grows up to marry Francisco Salvador Valdes who is the son of Juan Valdez de Abrego and Ana Maria de la Sendeja y Aguirre.

Her baptism record states that she was eight days old when baptized so we can safely assume that she was born on 10 Jan 1747.

Below is the transcription of the above baptism record.
