In July 2015, I posted a short death record for my 3rd-great-grandmother Concepcion Amado from the Sonora Catholic Church records. In February 2016 I found a marriage record for Cirilo Campuzano dated 1893, showing Concepcion Amado to be from the Pueblo of Rayon, Distrito de Ures. In the Mexico Civil Registration records for Sonora, I found longer death record for Concepcion. This document also listed her parents to be Jesus Amado and Antonia Velez. While I have not yet been able to back this up from other records from Rayon or Ures, the find potentially provides the names of my 4th-great-grandparents.

It is difficult to read part of this document, but it shows Concepcion was living on Calle Zaragoza in Altar, which is also where Vicente Plutarco Campuzano was living in the 1930 US Census. It looks like Concepcion's son Jesus Campuzano was the informant. She was between 75 and 80 years old, depending on whether she was born 1818-1823 in the District of Ures. The various records I have seen so far are not clear on when she born.

I have seen some new AncestryDNA connections which hint at links to the Amado family and I am curious to learn more about this part of the tree.
