1803 Baptism of Maria Juliana Raymunda Flores
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1803 baptism record of my wife's 3rd great grandfather mother Maria Juliana Reymunda Flores who was baptized in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

I came across her baptism date in the book "Camargo Church Baptism, Records 1764-1864" but it only had that she was baptized in 1803. Unfortunately FamilySearch does not have these records online.

Good thing that my local university had them. I found the 1803 records and went one by one until I found hers. She was baptized on March 26, 1803. Below it the transcription of the record which I had a really hard time reading.

Before you read it let me just tell you a bit more about Maria Juliana. Her parents are Jose Maria Flores and Maria de Jesus Villarreal. She grows up to marry Jose Alejandro Flores and has 10 to 11 children with him. I say that because two of them, I think, are the same person I have just not found the proof.

  1. It reads she was 10 days old on Mar.26 when she
    was baptized. Won’t that make her birth on Mar. 06.

    Thank you, Amelia Ochoa
