Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1890 Civil Registry entry in Mier Tamaulipas, Mexico of the death of my 3rd Great Grandmother Maria de Jesus Gonzalez. It is interesting to note that she is listed as Jesusa Gonzalez, but in her church marriage she is listed as Maria de Jesus Gonzalez. Her parents are Pedro Gonzalez and Juana Maria Cuellar. Her husband was Gabriel Lopez (death).
