1783 Baptism Record of Maria Tomasa Sanchez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the May 29, 1783 baptism record of Maria Tomasa Sanchez, my 4th great-grandmother, who was baptized in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. 

The parents of Maria Tomasa are Juan Jose Sanchez and Maria Gertrudis Garcia. She grows up to marry Jose Rafael de la Garza the son of Jose Francisco Angel de la Garza and Maria Cayetana Pena.

Her baptism record states that she was form Los Hoyos present day Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon and that she was twenty seven days old when baptized. Thus, we can conclude that she was born 02 May 1783.

Below is the transcription of her baptism record.
