The following is the 1900 baptism of Maria Trevino, my great grandmother through my mothers side. She was the mother of Jose Fina Lopez, my maternal grandmother. For a very long time I could not get any information about her until I found her Civil Marriage Registration with Cesareo Lopez in Dec 21, 1915. She was born Jul 01, 1899 in Rancho Los Trevinos, Tamaulipas, Mexico and in Aug 04, 1900 she was baptized in Ciudad Mier. I have yet to find her Death Certificate and Family lore is that she is buried in Carrizales, Tamaulipas, Mexico which if family stories are true it is near Reynosa. If anyone has any other information please let me know. The following document lists her parents as being Hesiquio (Exiquio) Trevino and Maria de Jesus Trevino.
