Hi Fritz,

I'm not sure, but there is a sixteenth century document in the AGN  
from that town, and the town is spelled "Acapixtla," apparently, in  
this document.  I have yet to look carefully at it myself, but there  
is a couple from the town, a surgeon named Miguel Angel Franco Molina  
and his wife, Yeimi Avila Arias, who are extremely interested in  
their town's history and keep writing to me.  Perhaps you'd like to  
contact them to see what they know.  They both use her e-mail:   
yeimi_aviar at hotmail.com

The AGN describes the document in question thus:  "1564. Códice de  
Acapixtla, Morelos, sobre Tlatoanis. Este códice, escrito en náhuatl,  
es uno de los 33 que acompañan el expediente sobre el litigio  
promovido por Martín Cortés, marqués del Valle, contra el fiscal de  
la Audiencia, sobre el agravio que decía haber recibido en la visita  
y tasación que el doctor Quezada había realizando en los pueblos de  
su jurisicción. El conjunto de estos códices se encuentra registrado  
por la UNESCO como parte de la Memoria del Mundo."
