When Chaplain Hozio forwared the proceedings to Durango on 28 Jun 1803, he mentioned that he was enclosing baptismal certificates for both parties and a death certificate for María Josefa Baca, only the baptism of Ana María Baca forms part of the proceeding. On 21 Feb 1804, Father Millán Rodríguez, acting for Bishop Olivares y Benito, stated that the couple was in error in stating they were related. The only blood relationship in the fourth and fifth degree was on a transverse line, on the basis of the fact that Pedro Chaves and Francisco Chaves were brothers, in such case a dispensation was not necessary. Because Mónica Chaves and Josefa Chaves were related in the first degree, Father Millán found no relationship of affinity. He recommend a dispensation, and the bishop approved.
