Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the baptism of Jose Cristobal Garcia my 6th great grandfather in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He was the son of Pedro Regalado Garcia and Maria Josefa Reyes. If you are a descendant of theirs let me know, hopefully we can trade notes on them.

  1. Moises, this is the 07/17/1717 Baptism Record for Jose Cristobal Garcia. For some reason, I have that one of his wives was Maria Antonia Garcia and they had a daughter named Maria Guadalupe Garcia born abt. 1740. I know he married Petra Cantu. Is she Maria Guadalupe’s mother or is it Maria Antonia?
