1837 Baptism of Jose Martin Garza Garcia, Mier Tamaulipas Mexico

The following image is of the baptism of Jose Martin Garza in February 9, 1837 which took place in the church of Inmaculada Concepción, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. It lists as place of birth Rancho Santa Teresa and his parents as listed as Rafael Garza and Ramona Garcia. It also states that he was 11 days old, thus one can conclude that he was born on Jan 30 1837.
