Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the March 24, 1708  baptism of my 7th great grandfather Francisco Antonio Guerra in what is now Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document indicates that his parents are Antonio Guerra and Antonia de la Garza.

Francisco grows up to marry Maria Ana Josefa de la Garza and have eleven children with her. I'll post their marriage record soon.
