Marriage of Manuel Rios and Manuela Rodriguez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the May 10, 1779, marriage of my 5th great grandparents Manuel Angel Rios and Manuela Rodriguez. They got married at “el valle del Pilon” nowadays Santiago, nuevo Leon, Mexico.

He was the son of Francisco Rios and Maria de la Rosa Rendon. Manuela’s parents were Salvador Rodriguez and Gertrudis Perez.

It is interesting to note that he is listed as being from “Valle de la Mota” which is nowadays General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

I have yet to find any of their grandparents.
