1860, April 5

Bishop-elect Franciso Miro describes the parishes in Ilocos Norte in a visitation report of the Diocese of Nueva Segovia. The churches of Dingras, Paoay and Badoc are roofless due to fires some years earlier. Nagpartian (present-day Burgos) an old town though still a visita of Bangui, has a church of stone walls; however it is recommended that the residents transfer to Bangui due to the small number of inhabitants. In Paoay, Badoc, San Nicolas and Nagpartian the parish priests live in small native houses; all the other conventos are stone buildings with thatched roofs [Scharpf]
