This is the August 18, 1776 Death Record of my 7th great grandmother Maria Gertrudis Barrera in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
This record indicates that Maria Gertrudis is the wife of Jose Garspar Garcia. Whose death record I shared a few weeks ago. What is so interesting about this record is that it seems to indicate that she left behind seven children but I am not sure as the record is very faint.
If it is really seven then I have extra children for them since i have identified nine children and Crispin Rendon has identified thirteen and an adopted child. It could be that married children were not counted and or it could mean that there are more adopted children whom we think are his legitimate children.
I also have yet to discover whom her parents are.
If anyone has nay insight into this please let us know in the comments of this post.
