1805 Baptism Record of Jose de la Trinidad de la Pena
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the March 29, 1805 baptism record of Jose de la Trinidad Pena, my 4th great-grandfather, who was baptized in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

The parent of Jose de la Trinidad are Jose Maria de la Peña and Maria Antonia Pena. He grows up to marry Maria San Juana de la Garza the daughter of Jose Carlos de la Garza and Maria Gertrudis Garcia.

His baptism record indicates that he was born on the 11th of March 1805.

I am a descendant of his through his son of the same name Jose de la Trinidad Pena whom married Maria Antonia Rodriguez.

Below is the transcription of the above baptism record.
