Last Names of Nuevo Leon

For years I had been searching for the parents of my 2nd great grandparents Andres Gonzalez and Nicolasa Guerra without much luck. That was until I found the following document for their son Jose Benito Gonzalez (great grand uncle). It is his 1899 Civil Registration Birth Record in Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. It lists his paternal grandparents as being Francisco Gonzalez and Antonia Salinas. It also lists his maternal grandparents as being Gorgonio Guerra and Felicitas Guerra.
