On 9 Apr 1766, in Tomé, María Luisa de Aragón, widow of José Durán y Chaves, brought suit against her son-in-law, don Pedro Yturrieta, for trying to stop the marriage of her granddaughter, María Rita Yturrieta. Witnesses testified that doña Luisa was in the right an was an honorable lady, ant that Yturrieta had never recognized María Rita as his own child. Luisa testified that Yturrieta, against his wife's will, had gone to Mexico City where he stayed for more than a year. Meanwhile, Luisa's daughter had given birth to their child, but Yturrieta, upon his return, unjustly berated his wife, refusing to live with her and much less acknowledge their child. Luisa and José Durán y Chaves were both present for the birth of the child and had raised her as their own. As such, Luisa held that Pedro had no right to interfere with María Rita's wedding. The case went to El Paso del Norte, where it was ruled in Luisa's favor.
