Miguel Martinez and Clara Trevino, 1707 Marriage, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

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.

Bartholome de Cuellar and Maria Gregoria Martinez, 1732 Marriage, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

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.

Nicolas de Ayala, 1741 Church Death Record, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon Mexico

The following is the 1741 church death record for my wife’s 7th great grandfather Nicolas de Ayala. The following document also indicates that his wife was Antonia de la Garza. The document also indicates that he left a will which I have yet to find. Also he names his sons Joseph Baptista and Caietano de Ayala as his executors. It is interesting to note that Nicolas is my 10th great grand uncle since he was the brother of Catalina de Ayala my 10th great grandmother and yes their parents are our common ancestors.

Location of Convent of San Francisco, Monterrey – An Email from George P. Cervantes

I received the following email from George P. Cervantes and I requested him to let me share it with you since the information and links contained in it are excellent. The previous post George is referring to is Convento de San Francisco 1590 to 1914, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Subject: Location of San Francisco, Monterrey

Hi Moises-

First, thanks for your We Are Cousins blog – a lot of interesting information! I have a number of ancestors on my mom’s side from Tamaulipas/Nuevo Leon. I haven’t seen you mention any of them yet, but we have some ancestors’ last names in common (de la Garza, Guerra, Treviño).

Anyway, I’m just getting you some info on your 12/12/12 post about the location of San Francisco in Monterrey. Maybe you have your answer already, but I found some information on this not-very active blog:

http://clioregio.blogspot.com/2009/10/el-extinto-convento-de-san-andres-de.html

That information seems to place it near the present corner of Calle Ignacio Zaragosa and Calle Melchor Ocampo (which used to be called San Francisco).

This location seems to be verified by this US Naval Intelligence map (click on “Monterey”); it was published in 1919, but it looks like the information was gathered before San Francisco was destroyed. “San Francesco Ch.” is labelled “3”:

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/historical/mexico_handbook_1919.html

It also seems to be in this 1905 map in Spanish, where no name is listed, just a cross at the corner of S. Francisco & Zaragosa:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/9302991@N05/3561352522/sizes/o/in/pool-471099@N24/

You can see the top of San Francisco to the left in this 1846 print, looking from the area near the Cathedral (the view is looking to the west-northwest, I think):

http://www.djibnet.com/photo/1846/plaza-zaragoza-monterrey-g-w-endicott-1846-3642634670.html#

and here’s a 1909 photo, from a distance – it’s in the middle right of the

photo:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/italintheheart/3582796621/in/pool-monterrey_antiguo

So…it looks to me like San Francisco was located in the middle of what’s now Calle Ignacio Zaragosa, just south of present-day Calle Melchor Ocampo; probably facing more or less north (facing up Zaragosa). And, sadly, the building appears to be all gone – to say nothing of all the people buried there. According to the first article I mentioned, some of the artifacts are in the Museo del Obispado.

I hope this is helpful. Thanks again for your work on the blog!

-George P. Cervantes

Once again thanks George for the excellent information, I hope that you all found it helpful and informative as I did.

Update on Nuevo Leon: Causas Criminales 1600 a 1900 – Book Review by Crispin Rendon

The following is a follow up email to the previous email form Crispin Rendon.

A few hours after my book review an upgraded version of the Nuevo Leon crime book arrived by email.

Corrected version (v1.1)

Without Accents (had been a section with accents)

The Logo remains but now as a ghost in the background instead of the bold in you face logo in the earlier version.

Thank you Genealogía de México!

As additional hype for this book see the following two case file descriptions that may interest some of you.

Contra el capitan Francisco Baez de Benavides, Alcalde mayor de las Salinas, sobre arrojo con gente armada a la Hacienda de Platas del Capitan Diego Villarreal extrayendo indebidamente las platas.

Encomienda hecha por el gobernador Juan Perez Merino al caudillo Diego de Ayala, de una rancheria de indios borrados intitulada aniguaras vacante por sentencia de 19 de octubre de 1693, del gobernador, general Pedro Fernandez de la Ventosa, en el pleito seguido entre Leonor de Ayala, vecina de esta ciudad y viuda de Francisco de Escamilla y el capitan Miguel de Escamilla, vecino de la villa de Cadereyta.

Nuevo Leon: Causas Criminales 1600 a 1900 – Book Review by Crispin Rendon

Earlier today I received the following email from Crispin Rendon. It is his review of the just released book named, Nuevo Leon: Causas Criminales 1600 to 1900 it literally translates to Nuevo Leon: Criminal cases 1600 to 1900. After you read the email you can read my opinion about the book.

Email from Crispin Rendon:

This email is going out to everyone in my genealogy address book.

I think some of you may be interested.

There is no need to respond.

Nuevo Leon Crime Book Review

Nuevo León: Causas Criminales 1600 a 1900

Book in pdf format sold at $73.32 U.S. Dollars (I used PayPal)

Genealogista e Historiador Familiar

Email: samuelsanchez@genealogia.org.mx

This book is 568 pages without an index but could have been 200 with some judicious formatting changes.

This book is a listing of criminal cases from the Mexican State of Nuveo Leon.

A total of 1,106 criminal cases dating from Nov 23, 1621 to Apr 19 1897

1600s(186 cases)

1700s(456 cases)

1800s(464 cases)

Each case is laid out in the follow data fields:

Fondo, Seccion de Fondo, Serie, Titulo, Lenga, Luga, Fecha, Fojas, Coleccion, Volumen, Expediente, Folio, Notas, Descipcion.

All of the Lengua fields have “ESPAÑOL” and all of Coleccion fields have “CAUSAS CRIMINALES”. (Word Bloat?)

24 records have no title or description given.

Inconsistent use of accents marks make a pdf reader Seach feature a hit or miss.

If you search for Valle de PILON your search will miss VALLE DEL PILÓN

Descriptions are short and may be identical to the title field.

The large Genealogia logo watermark found centered on each page is sure to annoy most readers

This book could benefit from some more editing.

Why is this book important?

I see it as a valuable resource.

Today, we learn about crime from newspapers, television and radio. Why is it presented to us at all?

I think it is because we want to know about it! If daily crime is not enough for us, we read crime novels.

I read the whole book in two days. That is more crime than you will every find in a crime novel.

There is little or no genealogy information in this book but I found some of the people presented in this book also in my genealogy database. Some were criminals and others victims.

One women, appearing in this book also will be found in my soon to appear “Families of Salinas Victoria” book. She beat her servant to death.

Juliana de las Casas, who is an ancestor to thousands of people in my database, appears as a victim.

There are few other cases of people found in my records.

The bottom line is if you want to know more about any of these crimes you have the details in the book for how to find it in the archives.

Best Regards,

Crispin Rendon

My Opinion:

I hope that this email either helps you decide as to weather buy the book or not. A few days ago I saw Benicio’s post on his website and thus was excited just by the name of the book, but then when he showed a sample of one of the entries I made up my mind to not even bother with it. Since I immediately recognized that it had the same format from the Archives of Monterrey Website. You can get the link on my previous post Archivos Historicos de Monterrey – Historical Archives of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico but, I might be mistaken.

Once you are at the Website for the Monterrey Archives, you can select Spanol as Lengua and then Colleccion Causas Criminales and finally press buscar and you will get the hundreds if not thousands of cases not just of Monterrey but surrounding localities such as Cerralvo.

What I am really exited and can’t wait for is Crispin’s book, Families of Salinas Victoria. His books are the best! Please leave your comments on the comment section.

Francisco Rodriguez de Montemayor and Maria Caballero de los Olivos, 1684 Church Marriage in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The following is the 1684 Church Marriage record for my 7th great grandparents, Francisco Rodriguez de Montemayor and Maria Caballero de los Olivos, they married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. There are to reasons the following document is interesting. First, it is a double wedding, the brides are half  sisters since both of their names are Maria and it is also indicated that the second Maria is “hija natural” natural daughter meaning that she was born out of wedlock. Second it mentions the names of the parents for both of the couples. The parents of Francisco are Diego Rodriguez de Montemayor and Ynes de la Garza. Her parents are listed as Sargent Lucas Caballero and Juana de Barrasa whom was deceased by the time the marriage occurred.
