Luisa de las Casas
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1692 Death Record of Luisa de las Casas who died in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She is my wife's 9th great-grandmother who was buried at the parochial church of Monterrey.

Thanks to her sons being mentioned in this record we know that her husband was Alonso Rodriguez de Carvajal and that her parents are Diego de Villarreal and Beatriz de las Casas.

You can find more descendants and ancestors of hers at Las Villas del Norte Genealogy Database here:
