Summary
Ignacio Josefa de Alarcona, on behalf of her incompetent Husband (espanol) and 9 minor daughters claims Joaquin Rosas owes her 4 bars of the Mina Todos Santos. She says an indio Juan Nicolas told her of a mine. She in turn told her Husband who promptly found it, along with Jose elojo Andrade (Defunto). Her Husband then gives the mine to Rosas in exchange for some material goods (listed in document), keeping 4 bars for his wife. Rosas never lived up to the terms of the agreement. His counsel cites the royal decree that no mine can be reclaimed after 90 days and that no court Inferior to the rey can rule otherwise. The juezes of Batopilas, however continue to hear the case, despite the fact that the tribunal de Mineria had upheld the ruling that only the rey could decide the case. Rosas finally offers de Alarcona 1,000 pesos, which she refuses. Continuation of case See rl. 1803 fr. 0694-0716. (P. Hayes) (1977)
