Antonio Dominguez Land Sale 1739

I, Antonio Dominguez, resident of this villa, have lands that are bound to the east, the main plaza and the Palacios Reales, west the fence and house of General don Juan Paes de Hurtado, north the lands of Agustin de Archibeque and sound lands of Sergeant Tafoya.  The parcel consists of 35 1/2 varas from e-w and 8 1/2 from n-s.

He does sell to Sergeant Antonio Tafoya for the sum of 20 pesos.  Witnessed by Gregorio Garduño and Baltasar Montoya, signed Antonio Montoya, alcalde mayor.

So is this land also part of the Water Street (Rio Chiquito) sale of Jose and Juana Dominguez in the earlier part of the 1700s.  Was his inheritance part of this land?   Is he the son of Adj. Jose Dominguez de Mendoza and Juana Lopez?  More than likely.
