1818 Baptism of Maria Ramona Garcia Lopez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the January 14, 1818 Baptism of Maria Ramona Garcia Lopez who was baptized in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. She is my 3rd great grandmother.

It is indicated in this record that the parents of Maria Ramona Garcia Lopez are Jose Antonio Garcia and Maria Andrea Lopez.

The record states that Maria Andrea was deceased meaning that she probably died form giving birth to Maria Ramona. I have yet to look for her death record.

Maria Ramona grows up to marry Jose Rafael Garza the son of Jose Rafael de la Garza and Maria Tomasa Sanchez.

Below is the transcription of her baptism and further down is a link to her marriage record.
