1802 Baptism Record of Maria Juliana Trevino
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the February 28, 1802 baptism record of Maria Juliana Trevino, my 5th great-grandmother, who was baptized in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

The parents of Maria Juliana Trevino are Jose Luis Treviño and Maria Estefana de Lizarraras y Cuellar. She grows up to marry Jose Antonio Garcia the son of Jose Tomas Garcia and Maria Salome de la Garza.

Her baptism record indicates that she was eleven days old when baptized. Form thsi we can safely conclude that she was born on 17 Feb 1802. The record also states that she was from Arcabuz, nowadays El Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

Below is my transcription of the above baptism record.
