Death of Enslaved and Freed Blacks in Gurabo, Puerto Rico, Book 1 of Defunciones

Going through Gurabo’s San Jose parish books, I documented from Book 1 of Defunciones the following slaves or freed people. I hope it will help someone researching their ancestors in Gurabo, Puerto Rico. Book 1 covers from 1822 to 1840.  I didn't capture the folios (page) on these but it does provide you with dates. You will be able to locate the record in the books easily using the date.
