Death Certificate of Susana Gamboa de Juarez, 1930

Below is the death certificate of Susana Gamboa, daughter of Enocencio Gamboa and Antonia Car. She died on 03 April 1930 in Gonzales County, Texas and was the widow of Jesus Juarez. Her death certificate provides the names of her parents and her birth date, which may not be accurate since it is only eight months before the christening of her documented brother, Eugenio.

  1. Thank you so much!! for the wealth of information I can’t wait to share this with my 92yr old grandmother Rosa (Sanchez,Gamboa) Rodriguez,

    I’m socurious on when the Carr last namewas introducedinto the family, do you have any information onthe Carr Family? Sincerely grateful, Norma Perez


    • I just posted this document, and I am glad you were able to find it so quickly.

      You asked about the Car name, and before our first ancestor listed here, Enrique Car, I have never seen another family in Mexico with that surname. As far as I can tell, all of the people with it in Nuevo Leon or Tamaulipas were his descendants. I suspect that he was an immigrant to the area — not from Mexico — and that his name may have actually been Henry Carr. There are other surnames in the area that I’ve seen that clearly point to a family’s non-Mexican ancestor. Being so close to the U.S. and to the coastal ports, it was not that unusual.

      Unfortunately, Enrique Car was married at a time when church records gave very little background information; there is no indication of his origin. I have begun looking for a death record for him, but with no luck yet. Probably it would require finding other types of documents, such as a will or deed, but those are not commonly available. So it might be a long time before this mystery is solved.

      If you have any info to share about your own family line, I would definitely be interested.

      Thanks, John
