Regarding José María Morelos y Pavón Stopped to Pray Here. José María Morelos y Pavón (September 30, 1765, Valladolid, now Morelia, Michoacán – December 22, 1815, San Cristóbal Ecatepec, México State) was a Catholic priest and revolutionary leader who led the Mexican War of Independence movement, assuming its leadership after the execution of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in 1811. He was captured by the Spanish royalist military, tried by the Inquisition, defrocked as a cleric, and executed by civil authorities for treason in 1815, as the marker mentions, nearby in the town of San Cristóbal Ecatepec.
