1774 Marriage of Jose Maria Tijerina and Hermenegilda Perez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the November 24, 1774 Marriage of Jose Maria Tijerina and Hermenegilda Perez who got married in what is now Cadereyta Jimenez, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They are my 5th great grandparents.

This record states that Jose Maria Tijerina was raised in the home of Juan Jose Tixerina. It seems that this is it and I will not be able to find any more ancestors for him.

As for Hermenegilda Perez her parents are listed as Francisco Perez and Maria Feliciana Garcia.
