Death Certificate of Yldefonsa Gamboa, 1960

Below is the Texas death certificate for Yldefonsa Gamboa, daughter of Enocencio Gamboa and Antonia Car. She died on 28 September 1960 in Corpus Cristi, Nueces County, Texas, probably in the care of a relative. In 1940 she was living with her granddaughter Ildefonsa Garcia, who was married to Florencio Juarez, the grandson of  Yldefonsa’s sister Susana Gamboa de Juarez. That couple had a daughter Susana Emma Juarez, who may have been the Susie Lozano, the informant in this death certificate (in other words, Yldefonsa’s great-granddaughter).

Yldefonsa lived quite a long life and was possibly up to a hundred years old. Because no birth or baptism records for her have ever been found, it is impossible to determine an exact age, but her birth year seems to have been about 1860. (This record gives it as 1825, which would make her 135 years old — probably incorrect.)
