25-Two across from it on the Bayfront.
Note: In doubt:
Sebastian Fernandez, 55-C-C
Bernardo Gonzales, 79-E
Juan Sanchez, 40-B
Margarita Sanchez, 42-B
I say in doubt because all de Leon's grands and great grands
married into Sanchez families, Gonzales and Fernandez families
more than once. However, I find no specific baptisms for these
with the e-xception of Juan Sanchez, 40-B. Yet his mother's
other child, Gertrude called hers-lf de Pasqua and then de Pasqua Sanches
Of course, I have found many sisters using different names. Only the
full family brings this out.
Also I spotted Juan and Margarita as they are in block "B" next to
Lopez Toledo(or near him) and I stronty suspect that is where the
original de Leon House was located(or across the street) ......
in 1702 for Toledo to be No. 1 and de "eon No. 2...1702.
