1778 Death Record of Jose Miguel Garcia

This is the February 25, 1778 death record of Jose Miguel Garcia, my 6th great-grandfather, who died in El Arcabuz, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

Miguel was the husband of Maria Antonia Josefa Lopez de Jaen. I have yet to discover who both of their parents are.

I am a descendant of their through their daughter Maria Gertrudis Garcia who married Juan Jose Sanchez Navarro.

Below is the transcription to the above marriage record.
