José Durán de Armijo, son of José de Armijo and Catalina Durán, married María Manuela Velásquez in 1710. He gave his age as thirty in 1718, and Santa Fe as his place of residence. In 1710 he worked on the restoration of San Miguel Chapel in Santa Fe. He had a son, Antonio, and a daughter, Rosa. It seems as though the mother died young, for José had given the girl to the childless wife of Antonio de Ulibarrí. José was still living in 1732 when Rosa was suing Ulibarrí for her adopted mother's inheritance.
