Last Names of Nuevo Leon

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.
