Will of Joseph de Urrutia
{ Cross }

In the Name of God Almighty, and of the Virgin Mary, Our Lady, Amen.

Be it known to all whom this testamentary document may concern that I Don Joseph de Urrutia, captain of this royal presidio of Sn. Anttonio de Bejar, with tenure for life, being sick in body but sound in mind and will, and in my normal judgment and memory, believing as I do, firmly and truly, in the high and sovereign mystery of the Most Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, three distinct persons and only one true God, and all the other tenets and beliefs of our Holy Roman Catholic Mother Church, do hereby make public declaration that I have lived, am now living, and expect to die in that faith; and that fearing death, to which all living beings are subject, and desiring to save my soul, I do hereby grant this my testament in the following form and manner:

First, I bequeath and commend my soul to God, Our Lord, who created and redeemed it with the infinite price of His most precious blood, and I beseech His Most Holy Majesty to take it to Glory, for which it was created; and my body, I bequeath to the earth from which it was made, that it may return thereto.

Item, I command that, when by the will of God, I shall be taken from this present life to eternity, my body be buried in the chapel which is used as a church by this villa and presidio, that the priest attend my funeral wearing his surplice, with a raised cross and the additional ceremonial befitting the office which I now hold, that a mass be sung and its vigil observed on the day of my burial, if the hour is adequate, and, if not, on the day after my funeral, and that the alms be paid from the best secured part of my estate.

Item, I command that my body be shrouded in the habit of our Seraphic Father Saint Francis and that the alms for same be paid from my estate, and I now make this request by the love of God.

Item, I command that on the nine days following my obsequies, nine masses be said for my soul with the tolling of the bell in this said church, and that the alms be paid from my estate.

Item, I command that one peso from my estate be given, once only, to each of the following compulsory bequests: the Holy Church of Jerusalem, the ransom of captives, the Brotherhood of the Most Holy Sacrament, and orphan girls.

Item, I declare that whereas I have longterm accounts which I cannot keep in mind, and whereas I owe several individuals and others owe me, I order and command the executors of my estate to pay all the debts that I owe and to collect all that is owed me according as it may appear in my books and in the memorials, writs, bills of sale, dispatches that I may have given, and which may be justly verified, because that is my will.

Item, I delcare that whereas I have longterm accounts with Don Juao de Angulo, a resident and merchant of Mexico City, who has supplied this my company during the time that I have held the office of captain of same, I order my executors to determine from the memoranda which he has remitted to me whether I have been charged more than the cost of the goods which he has sent me and to liquidate and adjust said accounts with said Don Juan de angulo, being guided altogether by the just prices for which those goods sold regularly in that city at the time they were sent to me. My executors shall collect whatever amount said Don Juo de Angulo may owe me after he has been paid the amounts I have designated for him.

Item, I command my executors to collect and receive all the property within my house such as account books and other papers that may be verified as belonging to me.

Item, I declare that I was married according to the precepts of our Holy Mother Church to Dona Antonia Ramon, a resident of Rio Grande del Norte, now deceased, and from said marriage I had our legitimate daughter Dona Antonia de Urrutia.

Item, I declare that my said wife, Dona Antonia Ramon, did not bring into my possession any property or dowry; I declare this in order that it may be recorded.

Item, I declare that I did not give any property whatever nor dowry to my said daughter, Dona Antonia Ramon de Urrutia; I declare this in order that it may be recorded.

Item, I declare that I was married a second time, according to the precepts of Our Holy Mother Church, to Dona Rosa Flores de Valdez, a resident of the villa of Saltillo, and that the children of our marriage are: Dona Rosa de Urrutia, Don Joseph Miguel de Urrutia, Dona Cathalina de Urrutia, Dona Juana de Urrutia, Don Thoribio de Urrutia, Don Joachin de Urrutia, Don Pedro de Urrutia, Don Ignacio de Urrutia, and Dona Juana Gertrudis de Urrutia, who I declare to be my children by my said wife.

Item, I declare that the said Dona Rosa Flores de Valdez, my wife, did not bring into my possession any dowry or property whatever; I declare this in order that it may be recorded.

Item, I declare that to none of my sons and daughters who have married have I given any property or dowry; I declare this in order that it may be recorded.

Item, I declare that to my soninlaw Don Ignacio de Ynclan, the husband of my daughter Dona Juana de Urrutia, I have assigned five hundred pesos and food for him and his wife for his services during each of the six years that he has been my cashier. I order my executors to audit the accounts of said Don Ygnacio; to charge to his account whatever he may have bought either from my store or from Mexico City; and that the amount in excess of the assigned salary of five hundred pesos for each of the six years during which he has worked for me, be added to the property that I may leave after my death to be divided equally among all the other heirs, share and share alike; and my executors shall exercise the necessary and conscientious care to comply with my will by so doing.

And I appoint as my testamentary executors Don Joseph de Plasa and Don Pedro Godoy, (my sonsinlaw), residents of the real and mines of Sn. Pedro de Voca de Leones, to both of whom and to each one severally I give the necessary power in order that from the best secured part of my estate they may sell enough with which to comply with and pay the legacies and bequests of this my testament. I charge them to do so conscientiously; and I command that whatever they may do by virtue of same shall be as valid as if I had done it.

And when this my testament shall have been complied with and the bequests and legacies contained herein shall have been paid, I institute and name as my legitimate and universal heirs to the residue of all the property, rights, and actions which now belong to me, or which may belong to me in the future, Dona Rosa de Urrutia, Don Joseph Miguel de Urrutia, Dona Cathalina de Urrutia, Dona Juana de Urrutia, Don Thoribio de Urrutia, Don Joachin de Urrutia, Don Pedro de Urrutia, Don Ygnacio de Urrutia, Dona Gertrudis de Urrutia, and Dona Antonia de Urrutia, my legitimate children by legitimate marriage, in order that they may have and inherit same equally with the blessing of God and my blessing; and whatever part of my property each one may have squandered shall be included herein and partitioned.

I revoke, annul, and declare to be worthless and of no effect any will or wills, memorandum or codicil whatever which I may have made prior to this, in writing, by word of mouth, or in any other form; and I wish that only this, which I am now granting shall be valid as my Last Will and Testament, in the best manner and form according to law.

Captain Don Joseph de Urrutia thus granted and signed it before me, the present notary and the following witnesses who were present:
