Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the marriage of my 2nd great grandparentsr Martin Garza Garcia and Maria Ruperta Lopez de la Garza back in March 2, 1862 in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Their marriage license was dated February 8, 1862 and I will be posting that one pretty soon. What is interesting about the following document is that it indicates that they were married in the house of Dona Gregoria Cantu. I wonder who she was and why there?
