1745 Marriage of Miguel Rodriguez and Maria Josefa Margarita Loreto Davila
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the October 28, 1745, marriage record of my 6th great grandparents Miguel Rodriguez and Maria Josefa Margarita Loreto Davila who got married in what is now Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico.

From the record we now that the parents of Miguel are Nicolas Rodriguez and Antonia Farias. It mentions that she is deceased at the time of the marriage.

The parents of Josefa are Joseph Davila and Ana Maria Flores.

Something of interest is that the priest wrote the name of Josefa's mother instead of hers in the margin. This is something to keep in mind when searching for records. If I would have had just read the margin I would have had not found this record.
