This is the May 25, 1771 baptism record of Jose Antonio Urbano Flores who was baptized in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He is the 4th great grandfather of my wife.
This record states that he is the legitimate son of Jose Antonio Flores and Maria Isabel Salinas. It states that they are neighbors of Cerralvo.
The record also states that he was 20 days old when he was baptized. This puts his birth date on or about May 5, 1771.
His godparents are listed as Santiago Peña and Maria Guadalupe Peña and it is indicated that they were form the Peña Blanca ranch.
Jose Urbano Grows up to mary Maria Teresa Garcia.
