Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1777 baptism of my 5th great grandfather Jose Manuel Maria Hinojosa in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He was baptized on January the 10th. The document does not mention the year but from other baptisms on the same page, we get the year. Also, this document mentions that he was 9 days old when baptized so he was born on January 1, 1777. His parents are listed as Don Gervacio Hinojosa and Dona Maria Theresa Trevino. His godparents are also listed as being Don Ygnacio Anastacio de Ayala and Dona Francisca Candida Garcia. On January 26, 1804, he marries Maria Gertrudis Salinas whom I am still doing research on and at the writing of this message I have yet to find her parents and grandparents.
