Christobal Marquez & Francisco Anaya Almazan mid 1600s signatures

This is another Inquisition testimony document, specifically where we have two nice signatures on the same page that of Christobal Marquez, son of Diego Marquez and Bernardina Vasquez and Francisco Anaya Almazan.  The interesting part is that Diego Marquez was beheaded for the death of Governor Rosas, it could not have been easy to be a survivor of that large family group.  Anaya Almazan was also married to a descendant of the Perez de Bustillo family, many of those second generation men were killed because of their assassination of the Governor.
