Garza Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Garza: Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This 483-page book contains five generations of descendants of Marcos Alonso de la Garza and Juana de Treviño Quintanilla.

Marcos entered Nuevo Reino de Leon (Nuevo Leon) well before 1610 since in that year he receives a land grant. Marcos Alonso de la Garza is considered to be the progenitor of the Garza last name in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Texas.

Marcos was born about 1560 in Lepe, Huelva, Spain and when he Mexico, resided in Mexico city where he probably married Juana de Treviño Quintanilla. He later on moved to Guadiana (Durango), Nueva Viscaya. In 1590 he was in the mining town of Mapimi and later on he lived in Saltillo. Don Israel Cavazos Garza stated that Marcos arrived in El Nuevo Reino de Leon in the early 1600’s with Captain Diego Rodriguez. He also states that Marcos settled near Cerralvo in the Mojarras river in a place named Villaseca located in the Sierra of Papagayos.

His wife Juana de Treviño Quintanilla was the daughter of Diego de Treviño and Beatriz de Quintanilla. To date I have identified only seven children of theirs.

This book is about five generations of their descendants and covers the time period of the 1500s through the middle 1700s. It is 483 pages and is full of genealogical information that includes sources for the facts listed.

Keep in mind, this book as all my others are only tools to help you build your tree. Once you discover a death date, baptism date, and or marriage date get a copy of the original. It is very rewarding to do so and you will learn more details about your ancestors.

Also this book does not include every descendant of theirs since that is impossible, it only includes the ones that I have identified through documents, reliable published, and unpublished works.
