A tough loss for Vicente and Maria Jesus

While going through the Mexico, Sonora Civil Registration files for Pitiquito, I stumbled on another reference to my 2nd-great-grandparents Vicente Campuzano and Maria Jesus Vasquez. This document points to a sad loss of a young daughter on 18 June 1893. Concepcion Campuzano was only 3 months old.

The document shows Vicente as a carpenter, 32 years old (from other documents he was 31). Maria Jesus is shown as 27 years old. Vicente and Maria Jesus later had another daughter, also named Concepcion. Both children were likely named after Vicente's mother, Maria Concepcion Amado.

Concepcion Amado passed away in May 1898. Her death record was found in the Catholic Church records for Altar (recorded 6 May 1898). It says she was 75 years old.
