1768 Baptism of Maria Teodora Montalvo
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1768 baptism of Maria Teodora Montalvo who was baptized in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. She is my wifes 5th great-grandmother.

The record indicates that she was born on April 1, 1768 and mentions that her parents are Antonio Montalvo and Petra Salinas. Her godparents are lsited as Francisco Guerra and Josepha de la Garza and that they all are residents of Mier.

Maria Teodora marries Jose Salvador Olivares the son of Jose Antonio Olivares and Maria Catarina de la Peña. You can view their ancestors and descendants here:
