1752 Marriage of Jose Juan Antonio Cavazos and Maria Leonor de Treviño
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the October 11, 1752 Marriage of Jose Antonio Cavazos and Maria Leonor de Treviño in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Jose Antonio and Leonor are my 6th great-grandparents.

This record indicates that the parents of Jose Antonio are Joachin Cavazos and Ana Catarina de Montemayor. Ana Catarina is listed "difunta" meaning that she had already died before the wedding. This clue helps me narrow down the death records that I will be searching.

The parents of Maria Leonor are listed as Juan Francisco Trevino and Maria Luisa de Gongora.

  1. Hello,

    Cavazos, Juaquin, Fernandez and Rodriguez, Ana Catarina are my 5th great grandparents on my paternal side. Moises, you and I are listed as being 3rd/4th cousins on It is my understanding that 3rd/4th cousins share the same great grandparents.

    Question: Do you happen to know what happened to the Santiago, NL Church baptism records for years 1843-1848. The file for years 1841-1848 Bautismos is on however, the file only contains 121 records and these are for years 1841-1842. I have written several times asking about these records but to date have not received a response. Maybe you could inquire about them? If possible, thank you in advance.


  2. Jose Antonio Cavazos and Maria Leonor Trevino had a granddaughter, Maria Guadalupe Cavazos, who married my 3x grandfather, Jose Antonio Cresencio Rodriguez, on 15 April 1800 in Santiago, Nuevo León.
