Have you traced your family back to Nuevo Leon. If so this book may be of interest to you. This book “Apellidos de Nuevo Leon” was originally written by Tomas Mendirichaga Cueva and transcribed into “Last Names of Nuevo Leon” by Edna Garza Brown back in 1989.

The last names that the author goes into detail are:

With the exception of Mier, Zambrano and Larralde all of the above mentioned last names are in my family tree.

Jose Juan Manuel Antonio Guerra and Maria del Refugio Gonzalez, 1835 Marriage in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1835 marriage of my 4th great grandparents Jose Juan Manuel Antonio Guerra and Maria del Refugio Gonzalez. They got married in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The only interesting thing that the following document indicates is that they had to get a dispensa for having a Second with Third and a Third with Fourth grades of consanguinity. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate these marriage dispensations. Through other docuemtn I have come to knwo that the parents of Manuel are Jose Ignacio Guerra  and Maria Francisca Guadiano. The parents of Refugio are Rafael Gonzalez and Maria Manuela Guerra.
