Maria Rosa Garcia, 1800 Church Death in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the 1800 Church death record of my 6th great grandmother Maria Rosa Guerra. This document indicates that she was the widow of Aparicio Pena and that she was a resident of Los Hoyos (present day Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico). I have yet to find out whom her parents were.
