Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the November 5, 1673 baptism record of my wife's 7th great grandfather Rodrigo Martinez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

This record indicates that his parents were Joseph Martinez and Ynes de la Garza. His godparents are listed as Joseph Martinez Guaxardo and Nicolasa de la Garza.

Rodrigo grows up to marry Maria Rafaela Treviño the daughter of Juan de Treviño and Nicolasa Escamilla.
