Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the 1903 death transcription of Rafael Trevino Barrera at the very young age of 17 years old. A few days ago I posted his 1884 Civil Registry Birth Record. He was the brother of my 2nd great grand mother Maria de Jesus Trevino Barrera. The following document indicates that he died from a gun shot wound. Unfortunately it does not indicate if he was murdered or if it was an accident. I can’t imagine the grief that this might have caused the whole family.
