This document does not indicate it but his parents were Gabriel Cavazos and Simona Campo who was from Villa Santa Maria, Castilla Vieja, Spain. If you happen to know who his grandparents are please send me an email.

  1. I have a Cavazos Family Tree due to (Tio Politico) Dionecio Cavazos who was married to my great-aunt Maria Saldana. I have C aptain Juan Cvazos del Campo (1605-1683) in this Cavazos Family Tree. I have found that the parents of Capt Juan Cavazos del Campo were Gabriel Giovani Antonio Cavazos Salazar (abt. 1590-abt. 1650); and Simona Melchora del Campo (1594-14 Aug 1697).'

    The parents of Gabriel Giovani Cavazos Salazar were Jesus Cavazos born abt 1565 in Santa Maria, Jaen, Andalucia Spain and died abt 1595 in Nuevo Leon, Mexico; and Porfiria Guerra Canamar born abt 1560 in Santa Maria, Jaen, Andalucia, Spain and died abt 1600 in Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

    The parents of Simona Melchora del Campo were Juan del Campo, Born abt 1565 in Santa Maria, Jaen, Andalucia, Spain, and died abt 1595 in Nuevo Leon, Mexico; and Marta de Tapia, born abt 1560, and died abt 1800 in Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

    This information is based on other family trees from Ancestry.com and I have not been able to confirm from original sources.
