Y-DNA Descendants of Juan Tamez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the Y-DNA Descendants of Juan Tamez created by Crispin Rendon.

Juan Tamez is my 8th great grandfather and he lived during the late 1500's and early 1600's.

His wife of Juan Tamez was Maria Sanchez de Huerta.

The DNA used for this report is that of Leopoldo "Leo" Tamez, and it turns out that the DNA is R-M269.

Make sure to read the introduction comments by Crispin, since it provides a glimpse of the methodology used to prove Leopoldo's lineage.

It is very interesting.

Introduction of Report, Y-DNA Descendants of Juan Tamez, by Crispin Rendon

This is what Crispin say about this report.

Juan Tamez is my 8th great grandfather. Last week I received and email from Leopoldo aka Leo Tamez asking about the We Are Cousins DNA project. Leo had joined the project and wanted to know what is next. His y-DNA results are haplogroup R-M269. He has been in my genealogy email address book since 2014 without sharing his family tree. My question to him; "Who is your end of the line Y-DNA ancestor." He wrote back "My TAMEZ paternal line. (me) Leopoldo Tamez Esparza ==> Leopoldo Tamez Garcia ==> Carlos Tamez Davila ==> Manuel Tamez Alanis ==> Manuel Tamez Salazar ==> Juan Crisostomo Tamez Alanis ==> Gregorio Tamez Rodriguez ==> Manuel Tamez Morales ==> Juan Tamez Huerta ==> Juan Tamez". I told him I had a problem with the connection between Manuel Tamez and Juan Crisostomo Tamez.

Fortunately, Leo has the transcribed church marriage record for Manuel Tamez and Maria Refugio Alanis from the Monterrey Archivo Historico. They were married January 11, 1847 in Santiago, Nuevo Leon. (That falls into the missing marriage record image gap of the online browse collection.) The record states that the marriage is Manuel's third and that his second wife was Maria Jesus Montemayor. Manuel Tamez married Maria Jesus Rodriguez Montemayor in Santiago and that marriage record states that he had been married to Maria Trinidad Garza who was buried in Linares, Nuevo Leon. It is from his first marriage to Maria Trinidad Garza that we learn is parents are Juan Crisostomo Tamez and Maria Guadalupe Salazar. Leo has it right!

Another marriage triad helped this Y-DNA line. Juan Tamez married his first wife Nicolasa Flores de Abrego in 1681. That record does not name the parents of the bride and groom. When Juan married a third time his bride, Antonia Montes de Ocha was related to his two previous wives. It is from the marriage investigation that we learn who his parents are and how Antonia is related to his first two wives Nicolasa Flores and Estefana Morales. I use May 5, 1691 Saltillo from the marriage investigation as actual the marriage date and location. Many thanks to Leo for sharing his tree and Y-DNA test results.
