Indeed, Margarita Montemayor is my 10th Grandmother through her daughter and namesake Margarita, who married into the Santos Coy family. Other families along this line are the del Bosque, Villarreals, Robles de la Fuente and even some families that were Tlaxacalas from Bustamante.
Soo cool, thanks for sharing with us.
Funny how things happen, but I was just working on some of my Montemayor family tree members, lol. I had not worked my way to Miguel de Montemayor and his daughter yet, but since you provided the link, I went ahead and connected them back to the other ancestors from a different branch. So, thank you for that link!
Oh, and she is my 9th GGM.
I am glad that this post was useful.
Her husband is my 10th great uncle. No Montemayors so far in my tree–but so many other names!
Hello again Moises! Your 8th great-grandparents Margarita DE MONTEMAYOR and Juan DE LA GARZA FALCON are my husband’s 10th great-grandparents. It’s always feels good to confirm tree lines with one more source. Thank you!
Awesome and glad that I could help.
Hi Moises, I am originally from Monterrey, I live in Wyomissing, PA, where I work as a physician I am also a descendant of Margarita Montemayor and Juan de la Garza Falcon, they were ancestors of my paternal grandmother, although there are also Montemayors and Garzas on my mother”s side. Your books look very interesting and I am ready to buy some. I am also very interested in my own genealogy and you seem to be quite an expert on the subject. After all, it really seems that we are cousins. Saludos y un fuerte abrazo.
That is awesome primo, we are definitely related. How did your family end up in PA? Just curious. I just visited Monterrey a month ago and I fell in love with the city. It’s amazing at the beauty that our ancestors enjoyed during their lifetime.
