Campeche - 2001 - Info on a hotel in Campeche.

It reads:

En esta casa habito, con su esposa Dona Gertrudis Eulalia Gorostieta y Zagasti el Teniente de Rey de Campeche Brigadier Don Miguel de Castro y Araos, anteriormente Gobernador de Tabasco. Fue tambien Gobernador y Capitan General de Yucatan (1815-1820), Fallecio en Merida, Yuc., el Primero de Agosto de 1820.

My poor understanding of Spanish suggests that it translates as:

In this house lived the King's Representative in Campeche Brigiadier Don Miguel de Castro y Araos, and his wife Dona Gertrudis Eulalia Gorostieta y Zagasti. He was previously the Governor of Tabasco. He was also Governor and Captan General of Yucatan (1815-1820),
