Last Names of Nuevo Leon
Jose Antonio Eulogio Flores and Nicolasa Salinas are the 5th great grandparents of my wife. This document lists Jose Antonio Flores and Maria Ysavel Salinas as being Eulogio’s Parents. Eulogios father Jose Antonio was the owner of porcion 38, 39, and 40 in Hidalgo County and Starr County. Maria Nicolasa’s parents are listed as being Jose Miguel Salinas and Juliana Gonzalez. Nicolasa was the Original Grantee of Los Maguelles tract in Starr and Hidalgo Counties. This document is very interesting since it lists Eulogio as being from El Zacate (present day Doctor Coss, Nuevo Leon) and Nicolasa as being from Mier, then El Zacate and finally Reinosa. This document also indicates that they are currently residing in Las Cuevas (present day Cuevitas, Texas). Oldest document that I have found naming this small community.

  1. Mr. Garza,
    My family is looking for information on Eulogio Flores and Nicolasa Salinas. My understanding is that she is one of the original assignees of Los Magueyas land granted in Hidalgo Starr county by Texas. We are looking any information that could connect us to this property. If you could be so kind to share information if available. Your assistance to this matter will be greatly appreciated.
