Juan Domingo Valdez, about 29, español, single, was the legitmate son of the late Juan Domingo Valdez and Maria Andrea Lucero, citizens of Santa Maria de Guadalupe de Poqoaque.

Maria de la Ascension Garcia de Noriega, 23, española, single, daughter of Pedro Garcia de Noriega and Maria Gertrudis Ortiz, citizens of the jurisdiction of of San Juan de los Caballeros. The couple was related in the fourth degree of consanguinity.

In Nambe, Father Alcina questioned Juan Domingo Valdez. he stated that he was related to Maria de la Ascension by Affinity on the basis of copula licita.... (witnesses named). Father Garcia del Valle forwarded the proceedings to Durango. On June 15, 1825, the governor of the sacred ministry, José Alvarez Tostado, granted a dispensation, imposing as penance that the couple would take communion once more than required annually by Church precepts and recite a decade of the rosary of five mysteries every day for three days. He ordered the parish priests to publish the banns three times at San Juan de los Caballeros and Nambe. Assuming no new impediment arose, either priest was to marry the couple, granting the nuptial blessing. Baptismal Certificates. 1. On March 6, 1796, Father Cadelo baptized four-day-old Juan Domingo, the legitimate son of Juan Domingo Valdez and Maria Andrea Lucero, citizens of the Nambe area.
