Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1793 baptism of Maria Ignacia Cavazos who was baptized in Santiago, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She is my 4th great grandmother through my paternal side.

Here is the second half to the above record.

The record indicates that her parents are Juan Esteban Cavazos and Juana Francisca Garcia.

She grows up to marry Jose Pablo Tames on May 8, 1811 also in Santiago, Nuevo leon, Mexico. I am a descendnat of theirs through their daughter Maria Juana Francisca Tamez.
