Last Names of Nuevo Leon
The following was submitted by Anthony Garza:

I am inquiring about my 2nd great grandfather who lived in the area of General Teran/Montemorelos/Monterrey in Nuevo Leon. His name was Victor Lopez (he was a concrete builder) and his wife’s name was Florencia de Ocio. The story goes in my family is that he was killed in an ambush by the police at a local restaurant near Monterrey. He was known to take the weapons from the corrupt police and store them at his house. After he was killed they threw his body at the doorstep of his wife’s house.My great grandmother (his wife) fled to Texas after that. Supposedly there is a corrido sung about him and I am trying to locate the song. If anybody knows any information please contact me! thanks.
