Los Martinez de Revilla (Ciudad Guerrero) 1752 – 1900 First Edition

Los Martinez de Revilla (Ciudad Guerrero) 1752 – 1900 First Edition is another great book to help you out in your genealogy research, specially if you are researching your Martinez ancestors form this area. It is a book that was written by Jose Felipe de La Garza back in 1995 and contains all the Martinez that can be found in the church records in Revilla (Ciudad Guerrero) from 1752 to 1900.

This book is excellent and contains great vital information pertaining to marriages, baptisms, and death dates. I found it interesting that he mentioned that my 7th great grandparents Miguel Martinez de la Garza and  Clara Trevino y Renteria were the progenitors of this last name in the Revilla area.

Here is the exact extract:

The progenitots of our early Martinez families who helped colonize Revilla were
Miguel Martinez and Clara de Trevifio y Renteria. Miguel and Clara originally lived
in Valle del Carrisal in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon. They were married in
Monterrey, November 23, 1707.

Miguel’s parents were Jose Ignacio Martinez Flores and Inez de la Garza Rocha.
They, too, married in Monterrey in 1673. Clara’s parents were Captain Nicolas de
Trevifio and Maria de Sepulveda. Nicolas and Maria were related, and because of
their close fa111ily relationship, their marriage in Monterrey, August 22, 1707,
required special dispensation from the Catholic church.
