  1. Hola Moisés. También Gabriel de la Garza y Clara de la Garza son mis ancestros, a través de su hijo Ignacio de la Garza b. 1680, casado 1711 con Polonia Fernández de Castro b. 1694.

    Sabes tú si Gabriel tuvo segundas (o más) nupcias?

  2. Hi Moises: Gabriel DE LA GARZA is the husband of the 10th great-aunt of my husband. He descends from Gabriel’s wife Clara DE LA GARZA y MONTEMAYOR’s brother Juan DE LA GARZA y MONTEMAYOR. Thank you for sharing this information.

  3. Moises; One of my great g-mas is Librada Garza daughter of Froylan Garza. Going back generations, I found a son, Francisco de la Garza de Las Casas, of a Gabriel Garza BUT this Gabriel’s wife is Maria de Las Casas?? The time period matches. Different Gabriel?
