Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following image and transcription is of the 1827 death record for my 5th great grandfather Rafael Gonzalez. The following document indicates that he died from fever at age 46 and was buried in the local cemetery in Mier. The document also indicates that he was married to Manuela Guerra my 5th great grandmother. This document also indicates that he did not make will due to him not having anything. I have yet to find out whom his parents where, if anyone knows please let me know.
