  1. Hi Moises,
    This couple is also my 8th Grandparents through their daughter, Antonia. However, I have Beatriz with a Trevino last name. According to John Inclan, Catarina Santos Coy (Bernardo Santos Coy) married twice. First to Lorenzo Garcia and then to Francisco Baez Trevino. With each husband, she had a daughter named Beatriz, both daughters named Beatriz married Juan Trevino and then Sargent Major Jose Trevino. Could that be true?
    Hope you can help me figure this out. Regards, Judi Shaw Forest
