Need help reading a 1727 New Mexico church record in Spanish.

The burial record is on FamilySearch, FHL #16645, images 10-11 (starts with the last paragraph on image 10 and continues on top of image 11.)  To me, it looks like the record is for José Silba, who is married to Rosa Baca.  However, "Origins of New Mexico Families" cites this as a record for Rosa's death in 1727.  This would make sense because there is a DM dated 1728 that lists José Silva as a witness along with his father.  Can someone with fluent 1700s catholic priest Spanish please read this and let me know who died?  Thank you.

I agree with your translation.  9 Jun 1727, Joseph de Silba, husband of Rossa Baca.  The note in the margin makes it clear Jose was the decedent.
Thanks for replying.  It's very strange that this would be incorrect in "Origins of New Mexico Families" and that no one would have caught it to change with his 1954 updates.

Thanks again.
