1707 Marriage of Clemente de la Garza Falcon and Josefa Catalina de la Garza in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the marriage of my 8th great grandparents Clemente de la Garza Falcon and Josefa Catalina de la Garza whom got married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico back in July 6, 1707. This document is very important and valuable since it mentions that there was a marriage dispensation due to them being related. As you will see this record does not mention their parents but fortunately for me I was able to locate an extraction of the marriage dispensation. I will share it next week on it’s own blog post. Turns out that the parents of Clemente are Sargento Mayor Francisco de la Garza and Doña Leonor de Renteria. The parents of Josefa are Francisco de La Garza and Gertrudis de Ochoa.
