Event: Baptism Event Date: 11/05/1776 Event Place: Santa Ana
Notes: The bottom of page 61 is rotted away and the name of the child who was baptized has been lost. The record reads as follows: -----village of Santa Ana-----Noviember 5----of Joseph Xavier de la Parra, and of María Rosa Rodriguez, Spaniards and residents of the said village. Godparents were Francisco Xavier Salazar and María Martina Pérez Serrano, who were advised of the parentage and obligations they were contracting. For this truth, in this mission of San Ignacio where I have retreated because the Piatos and Seris destroyed and burned the village of Santa María Magdalena, which was under my care, on the sixteenth of this month, I sign on November 18 of the aforementioned year. Fr. Pedro Font
