* The record is unclear whether her son Venancio is the 00589 Venancio or the 00592 Venancio. Chester King says 00589, but there are problems. Too many details in various records would have to be wrong for 00589 to be right. 00592 works better. But we don't know.

* It was customary for military officers, active-duty or retired, and occasionally their wives, to fill the role of godparent for a baptism. There is no familial relationship.
