Juan Bautista Sanchez and Juna Maria Diaz

They are listed in the 1757 census of Laredo as follows: Don Juan Bautista Sanchez, casado con Dona Juana Diaz, diez hijos, todas armas y dos caballos. Heres is the English translation: Mr. Juan Bautista Sanchez, married with Mrs. Juana Diaz, ten children, all arms and two horses.

Juan Bautista is the son of Tomas Sanchez and Josepha de la Garza. I have yet to find the parents of Juana Maria Diaz.
