Quinones, Estevan de
New Orleans

On this day he informed Father Joachin de Portillo, O.M.Cap. of the foregoing decree and he stated that he was ignorant of the reason for the decree since no one has been buried in the old cemetery since 1791, when David Hoge was buried there with the approval of Governor (Estevan Miro). (Notes follow stating that Quinones) informed Rev. Tirzo de Peleagonzalo, O.M.Cap., Rev. Luis de Quintanilla, O.M.Cap., Assistant Pastors of the Church of St. Louis, New Orleans.
