Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the 1709 Church marriage record of my 6th great grandparents  Juan Antonio de Tamez and Catarina Rodriguez. They got married in February 3, 1709 in Monterrey, Mexico. This document does not mention it but through other sources we have come to find out that the parents of Juan Antonio Tamez are  Juan de Tamez and Nicolasa Flores. The parents of Catarina Rodriguez are Francisco Rodriguez de Montemayor and Maria Caballero de los Olivos. Towards the bottom of this post I have also included a lsit of all their known children including my 5th great grandfather Juan Angel Tamez.
