1734 Baptism of Maria Leonor de Treviño in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the March 31, 1734 baptism of Maria Leonor de Treviño in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Maria Leonor is my 6th great grandmother.

This record indicates that the parents of Maria Leonor are Juan Francisco de Treviño and Luisa de Gongora. Her godparents are listed as Joseph Francisco de Zepulveda and Margarita de al Garza.

This record also indicates that she was eleven days old when she was baptized and we can safely conclude that she was born March 20, 1734.

Maria Leonor grows up to marry Jose Antonio Cavazos the son of Joaquin Cavazos and Ana Catarina Rodriguez de Montemayor.

  1. Hola Primo Moisés. Al igual que en otras ramas de nuestros árboles genealógicos, en esta también coincidimos con nuestros mutuos abuelos pues LEONOR TREVIÑO GÓNGORA Y ANTONIO CAVAZOS RODRÍGUEZ también son mis sextos abuelos, por línea de su hija María Quiteria Cavazos Treviño casada con José Luis SALAZAR Martínez éstos los 4o. Abuelos maternos de mi Mamá Angelina González SALAZAR. Agradeceré cualquier comentario sobre ésto primo. Saludos.

  2. I thought the Treviño and DeLaGarza families fled Spain as Jews.
    When and why after escaping the Inquisition did they convert?
    Why did we not hold on to our religion, after leaving our country and losing so much did we give in?

    1. I have yet to find proof that they were Jews. We do find Constance and Marcos being burn at the stake but I have yet to find any records linking them to Marcos Alonso de la Garza the progenitor or Trevino and the Garza. As to why convert. Do you want to look at the pie or eat the pie?
