The following is the 1826 baptism record of my maternal 3rd great grandmother Maria del Rosario de la Garza. She was the daughter of Carlos de la Garza and Gertrudis Garcia. I have an idea of whom her grandparents were but I have yet to find a document proving it. It is interesting to note that Carlos de la Garza and Gertrudis Garcia were also the godparents for my paternal 3rd great grandmother Maria Tomasa de la Garza Cuellar.
