Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the baptism January 20, 1783 baptism of my of 4th great grandmother Maria Barbara Rios in Montemorelos, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This baptism record indicates that she was one month and one day old when she was baptized. Using the birthday calculator of my genealogy software I determined that she was born on Friday December 20, 1782.

Maria Barbara ends up marrying Jose Lorenzo Lopez in Cerralvo and they end up having nine children of which I am a descendant of three of them.
