1777 Baptism of Maria Gertrudis Ildefonsa Valdez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the February 2, 1777 baptism of Maria Gertrudis Ildefonsa Valdez, my 5th great-grandmother, who was baptized in what is nowadays Santiago, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

The record states that she was eight years old when waptized. So we can safely assume that she was born on Janaury 25, 1777.

She is the daughter of Francisco Salvador Valdez and Maria Antonia Gertrudis Rodriguez. She grows up to marry Juan Jose Marroquin the son of Joseph Ascencio Marroquin and Juana Maria Eusebia Perez de Moya.
