The following is the transcription to the 1734 marriage of my wife’s sixth great grandparents Joseph Gonzalez Hidalgo and Maria Rita Guerra. They married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They were the parents of my wife’s 5th great grandmother Maria Ynes Gonzalez. The great thing about this document is that it lists both of their parents. The parents of Joseph are Capitan Lucas Gonzalez Hidalgo and Michaela Garcia Dabila, both deceased at the time of the marriage. Rita’s parents are listed as Xptoval Guerra and Nicolasa Baez Trevino. Turns out that Xptoval and Nicolasa are also my 7th Great Grandparents.

The following is the marriage of my wife’s 3rd great grandparents Jose Tomas Perez and Maria Francisca De Allala they got married back in 1837 in Valle De La Mota, present day General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The following document is very interesting since it mentions that Tomas was from the city of Monterrey and that he was the Widow of Juliana Maldonado and it also states that Maria Francisca was also the widow of Nicolas Cantu. If anyone has more information on them please let me know. Also I did my best transcribing the document since as you can tell it is kind of hard to see the letters. You can see the image used for transcription here See Original.

The following is transcript to the 1707 Marriage record for my 7th great grandparents Miguel Martinez and Clara Trevino, they married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document does not indicate whom their parents are but from other sources I have come to know that the parents of Miguel were Joseph Ygnasio Martinez and Ynes de La Garza. Clara’s parents were Nicolas de Trevino and Maria Garcia de Sepulveda. The document bellow does indicate that they had a marriage dispensation since they were related by third and fourth degrees of consanguinity.

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.

The following is the Marriage Record for Apolonio Contreras and Demetria Garza my wife’s 2nd great grandparents. They Married back in 1874 in Starr County, Texas. Several years ago I found the parents of Apolonio on a family tree in ancestry but it is now long gone. Unfortunately I have not found any documents listing his parents to verify that I have the right information and due to this reason I won’t list them here. Continue reading
The following is the 1911 marriage record for my wife’s great grandparents, Jose Francisco Perez and Paula Contreras. I think I am spoiled by Mexican records but I sure was expecting a lot more of information on Texas marriage records. It does not list the parents, where they were from, and their ages. Is there any other records to supplement this marriage record or is this it? I only know whom their parents were since they are listed on their Death Certificate. Paula and Francisco were only married for ten years since she died in 1921 from a snake byte.
