Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the September 14, 1711, marriage record of my 9th great grandparents Antonio Ramirez and Juana Sanchez whom got married in what is now Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico.

The records do not indicate it but the parents of Antonio Ramirez are Miguel Ramirez and Bernardina Marquina.

The parents of Juana Sanchez are Juan Sanchez and the name of the mother is unknown to me.

Almost everyone from the Mier are that is a Ramirez are descendants of this couple. They are the parents of Jose Cristobal Ramirez who is one of the first settlers of Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
