The following is transcript to the 1776 Baptism of my 4th great grandmother Maria Gertrudis Blassa Cuellar. I had only found her in other records with the name of Maria Gertrudis but the following record indicates that her full name was Maria Gertrudis Blassa Cuellar. Her parents are listed as Joseph Cuellar and Ana Maria Gutierrez and her God parents are Miguel de Cuellar, y Gertrudis Gonzalez Ydalgo. See Original

The following image is that of the 1732 marriage of my 6th great grandparents Bartholome de Cuellar and Maria Gregoria Martinez. Please note the underlined text, I used the two marriages above theirs to reconstruct the possible text and the name Bartholome we know to be correct due to their dispensation dated January 30, 1732. I’ll be posting it once I get to it. Back to the document. The document bellow indicates that the parents of Bartholome are Asencio de Cuellar and Anna Garcia. It indicates that Asencio was death by the time the marriage took place and that Bartholome was originally from Saltillo, Coahuila. So many new clues! The parents of Gregoria are listed as Miguel Martinez and Clara Trevino. This documented also indicates that they were related by four degrees. luckily I have the dispensation and it indicates exactly how they are related but that is for another post.

I was just searching for last names of my ancestors on the FamilySearch’s Family History Books and came across Ramos/Cuellar : from Pedro Eufracio Ramos & Bartolome Cuellar of Nuevo Leon to Julia Ramos Cantu of Texas, c. 1650-1983 by Richard Cristobal Hernandes jr. and Mark A. Phillips. Turned out to be an excellent book very well researched. This book contains alot of information not just on the Ramos and Cuellar from Ciudad Mier and Revilla/Ciudad Guerrero Tamaulipas Mexico but also on many other people from the same area.
The author did an excellent job with the family trees and family group sheets. This work helped me fill in many gaps in my research and it is a very good read. It also includes alot of history of the area.
If your interest is in this area and or last names are Ramos or Cuellar then I highly recommend that you download your copy and read it, you can thank me later.
