Juan Lopez Vela and Maria Facunda Portales Caballero, 1840 Church Marriage in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the image and transcription of the marriage that took place in Inmaculada Concepcion Church in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico back in January 13, 1840 between Juan Lopez Vela and Maria Facunda Portales Caballero. The image does not indicate who their parents are. The image does indicate that the witnesses to the marriage were Marcos Flores and Jose Angel Yanez. Juan Lopez Vela and Maria Facunda Portales Caballero are my great-great-great-grandparents through my father’s paternal maternal side of the family.
