1735 Military Roster Of the Presidio

San Antonio de Béxar

 

 

The following roster has been compiled from the names extracted from a *Power-of-Attorney given by the officers and soldiers at the presidio, authorizing their commanding officer, Captain Don Jose de Urrutia, or Don Juan de Angulo, a merchant in Mexico City, to collect their annual pay.  The Power-of-Attorney is dated 25 September 1735.  I have the names of their wives in my personal records and I have included this information in parenthesis, but, keep in mind that not all were already married on this particular date, and that there could be second (or even third) wives whose names I do not have.
