Are you Garza or Trevino? Do you have ancestors with this last name? If you do you are in luck. Tomas Madirichaga Cueva has written an excellent book “Origen de los Apellidos Garza y Trevino en Nuevo Leon” (Origin of the last names Garza and Trevino form Nuevo Leon). This book starts with Marcos Alonso de la Garza (my 10th great grandfather) and documents about four generations of his descendants. The author tells that many of his sons took the last name of Garza and also many took the last name of Trevino from his wife Juana de Trevino de Quintanilla.
As you may be aware these two last names are very predominant in South Texas and Northeastern Mexico. What is so great about this book is that the author only cites first hand sources and is very well documented. So far I have yet to find an error. In my opinion this is an excellent book for your genealogical research. Continue reading

The following is the 1694 death record of my 11th great grandfather Joseph de Ayala. He was buried in El Convento de San Francisco. This document indicates that his son Nicolas de Ayala was his executor. Through other sources we have found out that his wife was Ana de Benavides and that he was the son of Joseph de Tremino and Leonor de Ayala. He obviously got his last name from his mother. If you are a descendant of them let me know in the comments.

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.

Eight Generations of Vales and Sanchez and Consanguine Zamorano Curbelo and Trevino Families, is a very interesting family Genealogy Book. The author starts by describing how she arrived to Rio Grande City and then to La Grulla, Texas. Her story begins with her decision to get a teaching position in La Grulla, Texas back in the 1920′s.
I have yet to fully go over all the names in this book to see if any of my wife’s or even my ancestors are listed in there. I just thought that I let you know about this book since I am sure it will be of interest to anyone who has their roots in La Grulla, Rio Grande City and also other cities and towns of Starr and Hidalgo Counties.
If interested and want to read it, it is available for free at FamilySearch.org. You can download it or view it on the link listed bellow.
