Last Names of Nuevo Leon
This is the 1844 Church Marriage of Gil Lopez and Maria del Rosario Garza at La Purisima Concepcion Church in Mier Tamaulipas Mexico. Gil’s parents are Lorenzo Lopez and Barbara Rios. Rosario’s parents are Carlos Garza and Gertudis Cuellar. Thanks to Margarite Jenkins I have the parents of Lorenzo and Barbara. I’ll be writing later about them. If anyone out there is also related to Lorenzo and Barbara please let me know, I would like to meet more cousins.
