Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the 1706 marriage record of my 7th great grandparents Jose Antonio Salinas and Juana Garcia whom married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The marriage date was April 26, 1706. Unfortunately this document does not indicate whom their parents were but through other sources we know that the parents of Antonio Salinas where Joseph Salinas and Micaela Camacho. I only know of Micaela father whom was Pedro Garcia and have yet to figure out whom her mother was. If you know let me know.
