1715 Baptism of Joseph Ramon Guerra
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the May 1, 1715 baptism of my 6th Great Grandfather Joseph Ramon Guerra who was baptized in what is now Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. 

Joseph was eight days old when he was baptized so we can safely assume that he was born on April 23, 1715. His parents are listed as Captain Cristobal Guerra and Nicolasa Baes Treviño.

Joseph grows up to marry Maria Rosalia Hinojosa the daughter of Jose Manuel Hinojosa and Maria Ines Chapa. You can find their descendants in the book: Jose Ramon Guerra and Maria Rosalia Hinojosa Six Generations of Descendants

Here is the transcript of the above image.
