From this document, we learn that Juan Joseph de Ávila was a native of Alcántara, Spain, in the present day province of Extremadura. His parents were Alonso de Ávila and María Calderón. We also learn that Petronila's mother was Francisca Daza, or Pérez de la Calle, whose parents were Juan Pérez de la Calle and Ángela Daza.
On the same LDS roll of film, the marriage banns for Juan Peres de la Calle and Ángela Daza can also be read. Dated 20 April 1659, we learn that Juan Peres de la Calle, native of Sierra de Pinos, was the son of Juan Peres de la Calle and Juana de Ávila. He married Ángela Dasa, a native of Mexico City and the daughter of Alonso Hernandes and Elvira Dassa.
