1900 Baptism of Maria Trevino
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the August 14, 1900 baptism of Maria Trevino, my great-grandmother through my mother's side. She was the mother of Jose Fina Lopez, my maternal grandmother. Hes was baptised in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

For a very long time, I could not get any information about her until I found her Civil Marriage Registration with Cesareo Lopez on Dec 21, 1915.

She was born Jul 01, 1899, in Rancho Los Trevinos, Tamaulipas, Mexico and on Aug 04, 1900, she was baptized in Ciudad Mier.

I have yet to find her Death Certificate and family lore is that she is buried in Carrizales, Tamaulipas, Mexico. If family stories are true Carrizales is near Reynosa. Also, there is a story that mentions that she was poisoned by a lady who wanted her gone so she could have a chance of winning her husband Cesareo's love.

If anyone has any other information on Carrizales please let me know. The following document lists her parents as being Hesiquio (Exiquio) Trevino and Maria de Jesus Trevino.

Something of Interest to Researchers

Maria's mtDNA is D1 and it is indigenous. I have been able to trace her maternal line back to Catalina Ponce who was the wife of Melchor de los Reyes. Catalina and Melchor lived in what is now Miguel Auza, Zacatecas, Mexico during the middle of the 1600s.
