The following image is of the baptism of Dominga Marroquin Gonzalez at Inmaculada Concepción, in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico in January 19, 1916.

No. 29

Dominga Marroquin Gonzalez

En la parroquia de la Purisima Concepcion de C. Mier. a diecinueve dias del mes de Enero de mil novecientos dieciseis, yo el infrascrito Cura Economo de esta feligresia, bautise solemnemente a una nina que nacio el diecinueve de Septiembre del ano proseimo pasado; le puse por nombre Dominga. Es Hija legitima de Pedro Marroquin y Amalia Gonzalez. Fueron sus padrinos Gertrudis Guerra y Teodora Guerra, a quien les adverti el parentesco espiritual y demas obligaciones por ellos contraidas. Y para que conste lo firmo.
