Last Names of Nuevo Leon

If Ana de Ovalle is in your family tree make sure to check her mtDNA nad DNA Results report prepared by Crispin Rendon. Even if she is not your ancestor make sure to get a copy of it since you never know when you might just end up needing it.

Here is the introduction written by Crispin Rendon on his report:

My ancestor Ana Ovalle (spouse of General Diego Ayala) has 39,294 descendants in our kindred group database and is a perfect mtDNA match to Isabel Olea. Based on the mitochondrial inheritance rules we have 575 females found in 11 generations with her mtDNA found in this report.

Ana is named by her husband in his will in this translated portion taken from “The Slaves of Monterrey”:

Testament of General Diego de Ayala, native of this kingdom and legitimate son of Capitan Jose de Treviño and Leonor de Ayala, both deceased, former citizens of this kingdom. He arranges to be buried in the convent of San Francisco, with a novena of masses. He asks that they say a novena “for the souls of the native Indians that died in my service”, and another for those of his parents and for those of Ana de Ovalle and Doña Margarita de Sosa, his first wives. Of his first marriage, with Ana de Ovalle, they had the children: Juana, Josefa, Maria, Ramona, Diego, Leonor and Ana. Juana and Ramona, “are already deceased”.

I thank Anna Flores (the last person named in this report) for having her mtDNA tested at FamilyTreeDNA and for her family history research. We do not know who the mother of Ana Ovalle is but it is certain that Ana is a mtDNA descendant of Isabel Olea. Her mtDNA is Native American.

FamilyTreeDNA mtDNA results are Haplogroup – C1c2

This citizen science effort attempts to identify the mtDNA of our kindred group. It is rare to find mtDNA lines that extend 10 generations or more. Ana is my 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th great grandmother. Most members of this kindred group will find her in their ancestor book.
