This book is about the Founding Families of Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico and Their Descendants. It is about the nineteen families that settled in el Paraje del Cantaro, now Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico back In 1753 .
The idea for this book came about since the very first time I read the book “Mier En La Historia” by Maria Antonio Guerra. Mr. Guerra in his book provides a transcription to a document found in the Mier archives listing the 19 families that were to settle what is now Mier, Tamaulipas.
This interest grew over time since I am a descendant of almost half of the families mentioned and I knew that many other people are also descendants of them. My vision is to identify every descendant of these families.
This book is a start and even at 426 pages, there is a ton of further research that has to be done. There were several families that I could not find anything for but I still listed them in the book since I felt that it would have had not been right no to list them.
Please note that an attempt was done to not list living people so please don’t expect to find descendants of theirs that are still living. Also if your family or ancestors are not listed it is because I have no information on them. If you would like for them to be included in future editions of this book send me their information so that I can research them and include them.
