1866 Baptism of Francisco Perez Lozano In General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Jose Francisco Perez Lozano is my wife’s great-grandfather. He was the son of Encarnacion Perez Ayala and Dorotea Lozano Bosquez and was married to Paula Contreras. (View their Marriage Record Here)

The following is an image of his baptismal record in General teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico back in 1866.

His God parents are listed as being Doroteo Perez and Maria Carmen Perez. Jose Encarnacion had a brother named Dorotea and also a sister named Maria Carmen Perez. It is very likely that his god parents, aunt, and uncle are the same.

The 1920 Baptism of Eulalio Garza Lopez in Mier Tamaulipas, Mexico

Eulalio was my grandfather, his parents were Eusebio Garza Lopez and Paula Lopez Garza. This image indicates that his God Parents were Jorge Lopez and Concepcion Ramirez.
