I recently came across two photos posted by Isidro Antonio Gonzalez on the Facebook page of Laredo Genealogical and thought that it would be great if I could share them with you. I sent a message for permission to post them on We Are Cousins and Mr. Gonzalez was so kind to grant my request. Besides really liking the photos, another thing caught my attention and that is that it mentions a very familiar name as the founder of Revilla, Vicente Guerra Canamar. Also, previously while conducting research on one of my ancestors Miguel Martinez I also came across that he was the founder of Revilla. Ok, by now I was confused and I had to do a little digging to find out who is really the founder of Revilla, but before I do that here are the two photos and bellow them a transcript of the image and translation.

I found the following map at the Texas History Portal. It is an 1884 map of the Mexican State of Tamaulipas, Mexico. Maps have come to play an integral part in my genealogy research and the following map is very interesting since it names the towns as they were named in many birth, baptism, marriage, and death record. It also provides me with more clues as to what towns used to be named what. Continue reading

The following is the 1835 marriage of my 4th great grandparents Jose Juan Manuel Antonio Guerra and Maria del Refugio Gonzalez. They got married in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The only interesting thing that the following document indicates is that they had to get a dispensa for having a Second with Third and a Third with Fourth grades of consanguinity. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate these marriage dispensations. Through other docuemtn I have come to knwo that the parents of Manuel are Jose Ignacio Guerra and Maria Francisca Guadiano. The parents of Refugio are Rafael Gonzalez and Maria Manuela Guerra.
