1836 Death of Jose Ignacio Policarpio Guerra
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the February 15, 1836, death of Jose Ignacio Policarpio Guerra who died in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He is my 5th great-grandfather.

Jose Ignacio was the son of Jose Ramon Guerra and Maria Rosalia Hinojosa. He was first married to Maria Benita Benavides the daughter of Jose Julian Benavides and Maria Encarnacion Gonzalez. I have not found any children from this first marriage.

His second marriage was with Maria Francisca Ruiz Guadiano the daughter of Jose Luis Ruiz de Guadiano and Maria Micaela Flores. This marriage produced eleven children. For information on ancestors and descendants visit
