Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the June 15, 1677 death record of my 9th great grandmother Ana de Maya, she died and is buried in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document indicates that she was the wife of Alfarez Real Juan de Treviño.

I have yet to find whom her parents were. Through other documents we have come to know that Juan de Treviño was the son of Joseph de Trevino and Maria Navarro. I am a descendant of her though her daughter Nicolasa.
