Pedro Botello and Josepha Gonzalez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1689 marriage record of my 8th great grandparents Pedro Botello and Josepha Gonzalez who got married in what is now Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

The marriage date of the document is July 11, 1689. From other records we know that Pedro went by the name of Pedro Botello de Morales and is the son of Francisco Botello de Morales and Juana de la Garza.

Josepha's full name is Josepha Gonzalez de Ochoa and her parents are Andres Gonzalez and Juana de Ochoa. They are my ancestors through my mothers side.
