Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1721 death record of my 9th great grandmother in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She died in January 26, 1721. She was the widow of Sargento Mayor Francisco de la Garza whom died in 1719. This document does not mention it but her parents were Jacinto Garcia de Sepulveda and Clara Fernandez de Renteria. I am a descendant of hers through her son Clemente Garza Falcon.
