Rafael Trevino Barrera, 1903 Civil Registry Death Record, Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1903 death transcription of Rafael Trevino Barrera at the very young age of 17 years old. A few days ago I posted his 1884 Civil Registry Birth Record. He was the brother of my 2nd great grand mother Maria de Jesus Trevino Barrera. The following document indicates that he died from a gun shot wound. Unfortunately it does not indicate if he was murdered or if it was an accident. I can’t imagine the grief that this might have caused the whole family.

1884 Civil Registry of Rafael Trevino Barrera, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the image and transcription of the 1884 birth of Rafael Trevino Barrera. He was the brother of my 2nd great grand mother Maria de Jesus Trevino Barrera. Their parents are Rafael Trevino Trevino and Maria de Jesus Barrera Pena. This document indicates that Rafael Trevino Barrera was born in Alameda St, on the house labeled 31 in Mier Tamaulipas Mexico. I wonder if that house is still there. This document also indicates that the maternal grandparents of the child were from La Lajilla, which is only a few miles away from El Arcabuz.

Keep WeAreCousins At Your Fingertips With Our Android App

I had been toying around with the idea of getting an app for WeAreCousins and I finally got one. You can download it for your android phone or device by scanning the QR code in this post or scan the one on the sidebar. You can also download it and place it on your phone to install it. Subscriber of my newsletter also got the chance to download it since Sunday. You should also signup for it if you have not done so.

This app will basically open my blog without the need to enter the address in the url or searh for it on Google. I think it is a very convenient and easy way to access the blog either to share it with your family or just show it off to your friends.

Once I can get some funding together I plan to get an app made that would display this blog in a blog format and thus make it easier to view and read the posts. I would also like for it to search the whole website to help us search its content. Of course these type of apps cost about $500 and up. I sure don’t have that amount of cash. If you anyone that can do it cheaper let me know.

I just hope that you all like it.

You can get it here.
