Juan Ysidro Ramirez of Parras de la Fuente, Coahuila, Mexico
Posted by: Ernie Alderete (ID *****7593) Date: June 07, 2009 at 19:05:38
  of 776

I've hit a dead end in my research into my paternal ancestry. The following document is the oldest I've uncovered, a birth certificate for Jose Ascension Ramirez, son of Juan Ysidro Ramirez and Razo.

I haven't found a marriage record for the parents. They may have come to Coahuila from elsewhere. They might be Tlaxcallans. They are identified as Indians, but not a particular tribe.

Any assistance would be of course greatly appreciated.

Jose Ascension Ramires Razo

English Translation:
In this sacred church in the parish of parras, on the thirteenth of May of 1796. I, don Gregorio Evaldez, deputy priest, solemnly baptized a nine day old baby boy who I named Jose Ascension, son of Juan Ysidro Ramires and Razo, Indians of (this jurisdiction?), the godparents were Maximo Gomes and Rosalia Gudin residents of San Nicolas Ranch. I have advised them of the obligation they have entered in their charge, of this I swear and affirm by my signature, Gregorio Evaldes.

(Note: only one name is entered for the mother, Razo, which could be a first name, or a surname.)

Spanish Translation:
En esta Sta Yglesia Parroquia de parras, en el trece de Mayo de mil sietecientos noventa y seis, Yo Dn Grego. Evaldez teniente de cura bautize solemnemente a un nino de nueve dias de nacido, le puse por nombre Jose Acension, hijo de Juan Ysidro Ramires y de Razo, Yndios de este, fueron sus padrinos Maximo Gomes y Rosalia Gudin recidentes en el rancho de San Nicolas y les adverti el parentesco que tienen y la obligacion de su cargo y para que conste, yo firmo Gregorio Evaldes.

(Nota: solo aparece un nombre por la madre, Razo.)
