The rest of Luciana's story

Back in August 2015, I found a document dated January 1886 showing an intent to marry between my 2nd-great-grandfather Vicente Campuzano and 18-year old Californian Luciana Parra before Vicente married my 2nd-great-grandmother Maria Jesus Vasquez in May 1890. At the time when I found the intent to marry document, I did not see any other records referencing what happened to Luciana after 1886. Now that Ancestry has indexed and linked Mexican Civil Registration documents from FamilySearch's vast collection, over the weekend I was able to find a few more documents on Luciana. I am posting these to complete her story in the event there are descendants of hers who may be researching her.

Luciana married Francisco Moreno on 18 September 1889 in Oquitoa, Sonora. After looking in FamilySearch through the Informacion Matrimonial records for Altar, I found an entry dated 2 July 1889 from the neighboring pueblo of Tubutama. The document was signed by Bartolome Suastegui, a family connection and the same priest who witnessed the marriage of my 2nd-great-grandparents.

The marriage record between Francisco and Luciana is a great document for those who may be tracing the family of these two, as it not only lists their parents, but the grandparents for both. This document can be found on Ancestry in the Sonora, Civil Registration Marriages, Oquitoa, 1868-1899, image 45 of 134.

Luciana and Francisco welcomed a child, Manuel Moreno, on 27 October 1890 in Tubutama, Sonora. Sadly Luciana's life was cut short, and she died on 27 April 1892 in Oquitoa. She was 25 years old.
