Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the marriage of my 9th great grandparents, Gabriel de la Garza and Clara de la Garza Montemayor, whom got married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico back in July 17 1675. On Tuesday when I was getting the baptismal record for their daughter Antonia de la Garza, I noticed that I had no marriage record for her parents so I looked for it and found it and here it is.

I obtained the marriage date from the book “Origen de los Apellidos Garza y Trevino en Nuevo Leon” by Tomas Mendirichaga Cueba.
