    A native of Mexico in the eighteenth century. Little more is known of his life than that he was Prefect and Commissary of the College of Propaganda Fide, at Querétaro, in New Spain (Mexico), a zealous and efficient missionary, and a highly esteemed member of the Franciscan Order. He deserves special mention as having been the author of the second volume of the "Chronicles of Querétaro" (for first part see Espinosa, Isidro Felis), a book that is of inestimable value for the history of missions and colonization of northwestern Mexico, Arizona, and California.
