This is the June 11, 1844 death record of my 4th great grandfather Jose Benito Tanguma whom died in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
Unfortunately this record does not mention whom the parents are but form other records we know that his father is Joseph Tanguma and his mother is Maria Barbara Rodriguez.
This record does mention that his wife was Clara Barrera and that she is left as a widow. I don't have a death record for her but we now can say with certainty that she died after 1844. This is important since it narrows down my search for her death record.
