1821 Death of Jose Antonio Lopez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the February 5, 1821 death record of, my 4th great grandfather, Jose Antonio Lopez who died in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

The record indicates that he was married to Maria Javiera de la Garza. The record does not state a cause of death.

From other records we know that he is the son of Jose Miguel Lopez de Jaen and Maria Gertrudis Longoria.

I am a descendant of his through his daughter Maria Andrea Lopez.

  1. Primo, our family lines cross many times. Joseph Antonio Lopez de Jaen Longoria and Maria Francisca Xaviera de la Garza Pena are my 5th Great Grand Parents. I descend from daughter Maria Ygnacia Lopez de Jaen de la Garza who married Joseph Julian Longoria Hinojosa on 12 Apr 1809 at Immaculada Concepcion.
