User Request – Severiano Reyna and Francisca Witrago

Hello everyone, Esmeralda Reyna sent me this message through our facebook page. If anyone has any additional information please let her know by posting on the comment area.
I am looking for information on a Severiano Reyna that was born in Mexico and came to the United States sometime after 1931. He had a son out of wedlock in Irapuato, Mexico with a woman by the name of Francisca Witrago. The child’s name was Odilon Reyna. Odilon is my husbands dad. He died in 1960 in Plainview, Texas. If anyone has any information, I would appreciate hearing from you.

I gave her the following tip, it is along shot but you never know.

His death certificate indicates that he was born in Texas on 3-15-1933. If this information is wrong and he was born in Irapuato the Civil Registry for Guanajuato would be the place to look but unfortunately it only goes up to 1930 online. Irapuato baptisms for this year is online here https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https%3A%2F%2Ffamilysearch.org%2Frecords%2Fwaypoint%2F13962197%3Fcc%3D1860831 you might be able to find him there. Good luck. Let me know if I can post your comment on my blog since there might be a greater chance of someone finding it.

If anyone has any other suggestions please let us know.

Are you Voting in November? You can bet that I am and here is why.

Lets re-hire or fire our elected officials.

Ok, lets be clear, I will not tell you whom to vote for! As an American only you can decide that, and have aright to keep it between you and God, but please go out and vote. It is very important that we do so. Remember it is not just a presidential election but there are candidates competing at all government levels from Senators, Congressmen, to School board elections.

You don’t like the presidential candidates or your state always votes Democrat or Republican, guess what don’t vote for them it is also your choice as an American. Just don’t forget about all the other candidates that are running and one vote sure makes a huge difference in those races.

The people whom get elected end up making laws and decisions that affect all of us. For example, as a genealogy hobbyist I sure will not vote for someone that will take or has taken funding away from our State Archives, or someone that will extend Privacy lengths.

Another thing, don’t believe the media. Do your own independent research, we are already great at it. I just hope that our Genealogy community makes their voices heard not only on this election but on all elections.

See you at the polls,

Moises Garza

Blas de la Garza, 1669 Church Death Record, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The following is the 1669 Church Death Record of my 11th great grandfather Blas de la Garza. The following is a very interesting document, it indicates he left a will and also that some services in his memory should be performed in Mexico City. Hope I get to find his will some day. It is interesting to note that his wife is lsites as Beatris de la Garza but her last name was Gonzalez.

1767 Land Grant of Francisco Angel de la Garza – Mier Porcion 14

Map of Mexican Porciones by Mary Jo Galindo.
The above is a map that Mary Jo Galindo made from an old one found in Mier. The above image can be found in her dissertation on page 10.


Land Grant of Francisco Angel de la Garza:

This is a copy from the book Anales y Testimonios del Cantaro. It is a translation of a 1767 document found in the archives of Mier. It also contains all the names of the people that were given the above listed grants. I’ll be posting all of them in another post. 


Transcription of above image:

14. – A la misma linea hecharon otros treinta y cinco cordeles que hacen mil setecientas cincuenta varas mexicanas, con tantas a la cabezada opuesta, y diez y siete mil de largo, completa porcion, demarcandose en el Paso de la Laja, pidola Francisco de la Garza tambien vecino de Camargo por tener alli sus bienes, y se le deja como a los de arriba.

Translation:

14. – On the same line they threw thirty five strings which make one thousand seven hundred and fifty Mexican varas, with the same on opposite side, and seventeen thousand long, completes porcion, marked in the Pass of the Alaja, asked by Francisco Garza also neighbor of Camargo for having his property there, and is left as those above.

Some Notes:

This few lines in this document granted to my 6th great grandfather Francisco Angel de la Garza a piece of land .91 miles by 8.85 miles long, along the San Juan River in present day Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico. This document also states that he was from Camargo and that he had property on the land he petitioned for. So it can safely be assumed that he was already living at this location before 1767.

Francisco got married in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico back in December 16, 1757 to Maria Cayetana Pena.
