This is the April 25, 1766 baptism of Maria Balvina de la Garza who was baptized in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
Her parents are Jose Francisco Angel de la Garza and Maria Cayetana Peña. The record does not mention how old she was but I entered bef. April 25, 1766 for her birth date.
This record is very important since it mentions that she was born in "el Arcabus" which is present day Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico. In my opinion this is the earliest mention of it in any record.
It is also important to not that the witnesses are her paternal grandmother Maria Felipa de Servera and her second husband Jose Vela.
As you can see in the record, her name is Maria Albina but many other records mention her as Maria Balbina.
She grows up to marry Juan Jose Mateo Gonzalez and down below you can find the link to that record.
