This is the 1668 death record of my 9th great grandfather Gregorio Fernandez de Tijerina in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He died July 5, 1668 and his wife was Breatriz Gonzalez Hidalgo the daughter of Blas de la Garza and Beatriz Gonzalez Hidalgo. As for Gregorio I still have not been able to find whom his parents might have had been. If you have them and have a source for them please let me know. If you are a descendant of his please email me your direct line to him and i’ll email you mine back. That way we can add each other to our family trees.

  1. En la transcripción del acta debe decir:” en el altar del perdón”.
    Gregorio Fernández de Tijerina fue mi noveno abuelo, padre de Andrés casado con Josefa de la Garza (Rentería), padres de Ildefonso, casado con Juliana de los Santos, padres de Cayetano, casado con María de Jesús García y en segundas nupcias con Josefa Góngora, padres de Cosme Tijerina, casado con Mariana de la Garza, padres de Blas Tijerina, casado con Concepción (Ascención) González, padres de Casimiro Tijerina, mi bisabuelo. He pensado que podría ser uno de los dos hijos de Diego de Montemayor el Mozo, pero no lo he confirmado.

    1. Thank you for your help. I already fixed the transcription. I still continue to search for his parents. I think he is the first of his last name to get to the area and thus that is why we have not found his parents.

  2. Any new info???

    Trying to figure out where our Tijerina name came from.

    My grandfather is Tijerina on my mother’s side.
