1855 Death Record of Maria Paula Garcia
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the September 28, 1855 Death Record of Maria Paula Garcia who died in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. She is my 5th great grandmother. 

Unfortunately this record has no names of parents or husband. it does provide a valuable clue, her age. With it we can state with confidence that she is the same Maria Paula baptized february 1, 1795 to Jose Nicoals Garcia and Maria Guadalupe Gonzalez.

Down below is also her marriage record to Jose Irineo Gonzalez. Here is the transcription of her church death record.
