This is the January 3, 1770, baptism of my wife's 5th great grandmother Maria Francisca de la Garza who was baptized in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
The baptism record indicates that Maria Francisca is the daughter of Theodoro de la Garza and Maria Casilda. The index for the marriage record of Maria Francisca to Jose Francisco Javier Casas dated 04 Apr 1788 indicates that he mothers last name is Garcia.
It is also interesting to note that Maria Francisca is listed as being a Mulata. This indicates that one of her parents was probably Spanish and the other one was black.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find none of her grandparents.
Here is the transcription of the above baptism record.
