Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the January 22, 1810 marriage of my fourth great grandparents Jose Rafael de la Garza and Maria Tomasa Sanchez in Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Rafael was the son of Francisco Javier de la Garza and Maria Cayatana Pena. the parents of Miria Tomasa are Juan Jose Sanchez and Maria Gertrudis Garcia.

This document was very hard to transcribe and I did my best. It is interesting to not that it mentions that they were related by three degrees yet I have yet to find any common ancestors for them but again I only have up to her grandparents and for Rafael I am missing four great grandparents.
