Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the April 29, 1685 Marriage of my 9th great grandparents Francisco de la Garza and Gertrudis Ochoa Elejalde in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

This document indicates that the parents of Francisco de la Garza are Francisco de la Garza and Juana Garcia. It also mentions that both of them are deceased so know I can narrow my search to records prior to 1685.

The document also indicates that the parents of Gertrudis Ochoa are Salvador Ochoa and Cathalina de la Garza. Salvador is listed as being diseased.
