The following is the 1790 death record of my 8th great grandmother Anna Maria Anzaldua Saucedo. This document indicates her last name as being Saldua but from the marriage record of her daughter Juana Gertrudis Ramos we know it to be Anzaldua. This document also indicates that she died from “tisico” meaning that she died of tuberculosis. Her parents are listed as Sebastian Anzaldua and Mariana Saucedo, also that she was married to Juan Antonio Ramos. She was originally from Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and died at age 78. She did not make a will since she was “pobre” poor.

I was just searching for last names of my ancestors on the FamilySearch’s Family History Books and came across Ramos/Cuellar : from Pedro Eufracio Ramos & Bartolome Cuellar of Nuevo Leon to Julia Ramos Cantu of Texas, c. 1650-1983 by Richard Cristobal Hernandes jr. and Mark A. Phillips. Turned out to be an excellent book very well researched. This book contains alot of information not just on the Ramos and Cuellar from Ciudad Mier and Revilla/Ciudad Guerrero Tamaulipas Mexico but also on many other people from the same area.
The author did an excellent job with the family trees and family group sheets. This work helped me fill in many gaps in my research and it is a very good read. It also includes alot of history of the area.
If your interest is in this area and or last names are Ramos or Cuellar then I highly recommend that you download your copy and read it, you can thank me later.
