This is the baptism of my sixth great grandmother Maria Gregoria Martinez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She was the daughter of Miguel Martinez and Clara Trevino y Renteria. She goes on to marry Bartolome de Lizarraras Y Cuellar also in Monterrey back in July 25, 1732. This record indicates that her godparents were Gregorio Trevino, and Maria Ana Zalazar. I am a descendant of her’s through her son Jose Francisco Cuellar. If you are also one of her descendant please send me a message or email with your line so that I may add you to my family tree.
