The following is the 1841 image and transcription of my 2nd great grandfather’s Juan Tanguma, baptism. My grandfather was named after him. He was born on Feb 07, 1841 in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He was the son of Jose Hipolito Tanguma Rodriguez and Maria Francisca Pena Barrera. He died in Aug 15, 1909 in Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico at the age of 68 years. He is buried at the local Cemetery of Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico. I hope that his grave has a tombstone, since I had no idea he was buried there I have yet to look for it.
