1811 Death of Maria Manuela Monica Lopez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the October 10, 1811 Death of Maria Manuela Monica Lopez who died in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She is my 5th great-grandmother.

It is interesting to note that this record mentions that she leaves 50 goats to the church of Agualeguas. Perhaps her ranch "las tablas" was near there.

From other records we know that her parents are Jose Antonio de Jesus Lopez de Jaen and Maria Gertrudis Salinas.

Her husband, as mentioned in this record, is Jose Francisco Javier Hinojosa. He is son of Jose Francisco Hinojosa and Maira Ines Benavides. For information on ancestors and descendants visit
