His father is Pedro Garcia and his mother is Elena de la Garza Guerra. This document also indicates that his godparents were Captain Juan Cavazos and Clara de la Garza, they are also my 9th great grandparents through other family lines. I have yet to find any of Antonio’s grandparents. If you have any documents indicating whom his grandparents were please let me know.
