Notes: 1. In 1785 they wrote:
Josef Landa
In 1791 they wrote:
Joaede Landa

2. We are not able to find the
relationship of Jose de Landa
to Juan de Landa. In accordance
with the years and the circum-
stances we can assume that they
could be father and son. (Juan de
Landa was married in 170O.)
3. If we check Rocque #98 and #100
measurements with the Rocque scale
and with the 1789 ESgrituras and
the 1790 Quesada List, they do
not agree in scale.
