Many of you already know that my Garza’s were originally from Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico and about a year ago I came across a facebook page titled “Yo Tambien Soy de Arcabuz Tamaulipas“. I followed that page until the administrators moved it to Facebook Groups and titled it “Yo tambien soy de Arcabuz“.

From time to time I check it out since many cousins also have joined the group and since many of my parent’s ancestors are form this area. Continue reading

1925 Birth Index of Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico

Here is the image and transcription to the 1925 Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico birth Index. The front page of the book indicates that it is a copy of the originals. In 1925 Congregacion Arcabuz belonged to the municipality of Mier and the Civil Registry was established to serve that region since Ciudad Mier is almost twenty miles away and at that time transportation would have had been a challenge.

Chimney at Rancho Viejo

Rancho Viejo is the name of the ranch were the Marroquines through my fathers side once lived starting in the 1880′s in Northern Tamaulipas, Mexico. This place is located near present day Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

The Marroquines in my family were originally from Allende and Santiago Nuevo Leon and I have traced them back as far as 1680′s. I have yet to discover why they left their native Allende Nuevo Leon to settle in Tamaulipas.

Pedro Marroquin, my fathers grandfather, was born and baptized in Allende and ended up marrying my great grandmother Maria Amalia Gonzalez in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico on Aug 27 1912. I have traced her ancestors as back far as the early 1700′s.

What is left of Rancho Viejo:

Chimney at Rancho Viejo

This picture is of the chimney that is left from my great grandparents original jacal. According to my father his aunt accidentally burned it down to the ground.

The family then built another jacal about 300 feet in front of this one but only the chimney remains of that jacal too.

Still to this date Rancho Viejo continues to be property of the Marroquines and the vast ranch that once was managed from Rancho Viejo continues to be in the hands of my father’s cousins.
