Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the March 14, 1816 baptism record of my 4th great grandmother Maria Tomasa Gonzalez in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

It was very difficult transcribing it so if there are any mistakes sorry. The parents of Maria Tomasa are listed as Irineo Gonzalez and Maria Paula Garcia.

Maria Tomasa ends up growing to marry Jose Feliciano Guerra. You can view their marriage record here: Feliciano Guerra and Tomasa Gonzalez, 1836 Church Marriage, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico
