Dr. Sostenes Vera Salinas Medico y Político – Guest Post by Dr. Ruben D. Pastrana Guerrero

The following post is a guest post by Dr. Ruben D. Pastrana Guerrero Official Historian for the municipality of the Los Aldamas, Nuevo. It is in Spanish and if you can not read Spanish I strongly recommend you check out the Google translation. This post is a short biography of Dr. Sostenes Vera Salinas, whom was from Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Dr. Sostenes Vera Salinas

Medico y Político

Sostenes Vera Salinas, nació en la Villa de Los Aldamas, N.L. el año de 1859, hijo del Capitán Republicano Don Agustín Vera, quien fue Alcalde Primero de nuestro Pueblo en cinco ocasiones entre 1861 y 1891 y de Doña Victoria Salinas, descendiente de una de las familias más prominentes de la región.

            El niño Sostenes efectúo sus estudios primarios en la escuela primaria superior  José Ma. de las Casas en esta cabecera, para posteriormente ser enviado por sus padres a completar sus estudios medios a la Ciudad de Monterrey, en donde ingresa a la escuela de Medicina

En ese sagrado recinto de la enseñanza medica, abrevo en los conocimientos del Benemérito de Nuevo León, el Dr. José Eleuterio González, Gonzalitos, aprendiendo el difícil arte científico de aliviar el dolor humano, siendo uno de sus discípulos más destacados.

Se tituló de Médico Cirujano el día 6 de Octubre de 1885, con la tesis  Pequeño estudio sobre la Diátesis,  hermoso documento que aun existe en los Archivos Históricos de la Facultad de Medicina, por el cual se le extendió su titulo con honores.

Volvió a su pueblo natal, en donde ejerció por un breve tiempo, pero debido a la grave epidemia de Viruela desatada en 1888, fue requerido por el gobierno a trasladarse a General Bravo, N.L., para atender a los habitantes de dicha población que sufrían muy intensamente los embates de la mortal enfermedad, donde por medio de la aplicación de linfa vacunal, salvó la vida a gran cantidad de personas.

A petición de la comunidad, el Dr. Vera se estableció definitivamente en Gral. Bravo para ejercer su profesión de Médico y en reconocimiento a sus servicios al pueblo en 1888, al morir intempestivamente el Alcalde 1º Coronel Darío Garza Cantú,  el Dr. Vera fue designado Alcalde, el 31 de Agosto de 1888.

En Gral. Bravo caso con la Srta. Emilia Cantú Villarreal, con quien procreo dos hijos, Ricardo y María Sara Vera Cantu y sirvió a la comunidad eficientemente, hasta que en una nueva epidemia de la mortal Fiebre Amarilla y mientras atendía a sus enfermos, cayo victima de la enfermedad y fallece el  22 de marzo de 1891.

Habiendo cumplido con los preceptos morales del médico Hipocrático y entregado aun su propia vida por salvar a sus pacientes, sus restos mortales descansan para siempre en el Panteón Municipal de su patria chica adoptiva, General Bravo, N.L.

Maria del Rosario de la Garza Garcia, 1826 Baptism In Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1826 baptism record of my maternal 3rd great grandmother Maria del Rosario de la Garza. She was the daughter of Carlos de la Garza and Gertrudis Garcia. I have an idea of whom her grandparents were but I have yet to find a document proving it. It is interesting to note that Carlos de la Garza and Gertrudis Garcia were also the godparents for my paternal 3rd great grandmother Maria Tomasa de la Garza Cuellar.
