Death Certificate: Guadalupe (Padilla) Torres

Below is a picture of my great-great grandmother Guadalupe (Padilla) Torres. She and her husband Jose Epitacio Torres were the parents of my great-grandmother Delfina (Torres) Zimmerly, which also makes her the maternal grandmother of my maternal grandmother Paublita (Zimmerly) Baca.

Below is her death certificate. According to the record, Guadalupe Padilla Torres was a Spanish married female. Her husband was Jose E. Torres. She was born in 1869 in Socorro, New Mexico. She died on 4 November 1920 of a cerebral hemorage. She was 51 years old.

Her father's was Manuel Padilla of Socorro (other records attest to his name being Felipe Padilla.) Her mother's name was not known (from other records we know that her name was Juana Maria Garcia.) Her son Valentin Torres was the informant for the certificate.
