1800 Baptism Record of Maria Celedonia Hinojosa
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the September 18, 1800 baptism record of Maria Celedonia Hinojosa, my 4th great grandmother, who was baptized in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. 

The parents of Maria Celedonia Hinojosa are Francisco Javier Hinojosa and Maria Manuela Monica Lopez. She grows up to marry Jose Francisco Salinas the son of Jose Francisco Javier Salinas and Maria Petra Peña.

Her baptism record states that she was seven days old when baptized so we can deduce that she was born on 11 Sep 1800. The record also states that they were form Las Tablas which I assume is a ranch name.

Below is the transcript of the above baptism record.
