1728 Marriage of Marcos Leal de Leon and Maria Gertrudis de la Garza
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the August 9, 1728 Marriage of Marcos Leal de Leon and Maria Gertrudis de la Garza who got married in what is now Cadereyta Jimenez, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They are my 7th great grandparents.

This record does not mention whom their parents are but it does mention a marriage dispensation. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate it.

But, from the marriage dispensations of their children we know that the parents of Marcos Leal de Leon are Lorenzo Leal de Leon and Juna Maria Garcia Davila.

The parents of Maria de la Garza are Pablo de la Garza and Catarina Gonzalez.
