1777 Baptism Record of Jose Carlos Valentin de la Garza
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the May 24, 1777 baptism record of Jose Carlos Valentin de la Garza, my 4th great grandfather, who was baptized in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

The parents of Jose Carlos are Jose Francisco Angel de la Garza and Maria Cayetana Pena.

This record indicates that he was nine days old when he was baptized so we can deduce that he was born on May 15, 1777.

Carlos grows up to marry Maria Gertrudis Garcia the daughter of Jose Antonio Garcia and Maria Quiteria Alanis.

Below is the transcription of the above baptism record.
