Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1702 death record of my 9th great grandmother Maria de Ayala in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This record indicates that she die February 20, 1702. It is also indicated that her husband was Capitan Nicolas Lopez Prieto.

From other records we have come to know that her parents were Diego de Ayala and Ana de Ovalle. I descend from two of her children, Margarita Lopez Prieto and Antonio Lopez Prieto.
