Record of Maria Barbara Rios
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the December 9, 1824 death record of Maria Barbara Rios who is my 4th great grandmother. She died in Los Hoyos which is now days Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. 

I was very saddened when I read the death record since she died from childbirth. Looking at the subsequent records I also come to find out that the child, Maria Juana Lopez, also died at birth.

The record states that she was married to Lorenzo Lopez and that she di not receive her sacraments due to the sudden death. Also that no will was done since she was poor.

From other records we know that she was the daughter of Manuel Angel Rios and Maria Manuela Rodriguez. She was born in Montemorelos, Nuevo Leon.
