Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the 1673 marriage of my 10th great grandparents Diego Gutierrez de Castro and Gertrudis Flores de la Garza. They were married on July 30, 1673, in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. I have not been able to find a document that indicates who his parents were but on the other hand, the parents of Gertrudis are Pedro Flores de Abrego and Margarita de la Garza. I am a descendant of theirs through their daughter Margarita Gutierrez who married Joseph Martinez Guajardo.

    1. Thanks for the information. I had previously seen this but unfortunately I have not been able to find a document proving that they are his parents. I will continue to search and will probably research Juana Francisca Ayala de Ovalle and Diego Gutierrez more to see if i find any proof.

  2. Hi I think we might be cousins! My name is Rayleen, I’m from San Antonio Texas, I started my ancestry tree not too long ago and I came across your blog and I’m more than certain we share the same grandmother by the name of Maria Gertrudis Flores de la Garza. She is my 10th Great Grand Mother, I would love to hear back from you to share my information and research. Feel free to email me back:)
