Plaza Blanca Grant ~ 1739 Valdez family

This land grant needs to be studied quite a bit more as there are many relations here that otherwise would end up as brick walls.  Just a few frames and it tells its own story about these three siblings.  It also summarizes that Ygnacio Valdez married Juana Martin and they had several children baptized at Santa Clara.  Another frame mentions that Rosa Valdez had a son named Juan Domingo.
