Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the baptism 1749 baptism of my 5th great grandmother Maria Ynes Gonzalez Guerra in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She was the daughter of Joseph Gonzalez Hidalgo and Maria Rita Guerra. She grows up to marry Joseph Isidro de Ayala and I am a descendant of her through her son Andres de Allala. If you are a descendant of her or of her parents let me know so that I can add you to my family tree.
