Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the 1741 church death record for my wife’s 7th great grandfather Nicolas de Ayala. The following document also indicates that his wife was Antonia de la Garza. The document also indicates that he left a will which I have yet to find. Also he names his sons Joseph Baptista and Caietano de Ayala as his executors. It is interesting to note that Nicolas is my 10th great grand uncle since he was the brother of Catalina de Ayala my 10th great grandmother and yes their parents are our common ancestors.
