1677 Death Record of Agustin de Saldivar
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the death record of Agustin de Saldivar who died February 7, 1677  in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He is the 8th great grandfather of my wife.

His death record does not indicate who his parents are but form other records we know them to be Vicente de Zaldivar y Ressa and Maria Sosa Farias.

The record does state that he was the husband of Ana de Salinas. The parents of Ana de Salinas are Pedro Salinas and Angela Solis.

The above image is the copy of the record and below is the transcription of it.
