Rafael Garza Sanchez, 1860 Mier Civil Registry Death Record

The following is the 1860 Mier Civil Registry Death record for my 3rd great grandfather. This document helped me and other researchers distinguish between two Rafael’s. Turns out that they were first cousins and both used both last names to distinguish each other. Both are listed on the Mier Church census residing in the same town of Arcabuz Tamaulipas. Turns out that the parents of Rafael Garza Sanchez are Jose Rafael de la Garza and Maria Tomasa Sanchez. I have yet to find the parents of his wife Ramona Garcia.

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.

1834 Church Marriage of Rafael Garza and Maria Ramona Garcia, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following document is the Church marriage of my 3rd great grandparents Rafael Garza and Maria Ramona Garcia. I had obtained this document months ago but had not taken the time to transcribe it until now. What I found was very interesting. It indicates that they are related by blood and had to get a dispensation in order to get married by the church. “parentesco que tienen dispensado que es en segundo con tercero grado de consanguinidad” indicates that the marriage was between Uncle and Niece, I say uncle since Rafeal died way before Ramona did, as indicated in various other documents, meaning that he was way older than her. It also means that whomever were here parents her mother more than likely is Rafael’s sister.

The following is the marriage of my 2nd great grandparentsr Martin Garza Garcia and Maria Ruperta Lopez de la Garza back in March 2, 1862 in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Their marriage license was dated February 8, 1862 and I will be posting that one pretty soon. What is interesting about the following document is that it indicates that they were married in the house of Dona Gregoria Cantu. I wonder who she was and why there?
